How ethical leadership contributes to an ethical work climate

Please join us in Auckland on Friday 16 November for the ILANZ-Bell Gully General Counsel Forum.

Many organisations have deployed a range of policies, from codes of conduct and whistle-blower procedures to training and applicant screening.

But amidst all these instruments, ethical leadership is probably cited as the most important factor. This is because ethical leadership can be seen as the crucial layer between organisational ethical values and norms, which are embedded in ethics policies and programmes on the one hand, and an ethical climate and employee ethical behaviour on the other hand.

Professor Karin Lasthuizen, from the Victoria University Business School, will share insights into how ethical leadership really works in practice, incorporating her most recent research findings which include a New Zealand context.
