A recent spate of high-profile court cases has drawn the attention once again to the need for responsible and ethical management at the highest levels both in business and in government. Much has been written about the theory and principles of ethical management but there has been little guidance on the practicalities. The ethics of work provides a practical guide to ethical management based on real-life experience at the top.

Author and management consultant Sheila Stokes White conducted a unique research programme interviewing business leaders in both public and private sectors to establish what works and what doesn’t work in practice. The result is an evidence-based analysis which will prove invaluable reading to all business leaders wanting to improve their ethical performance. Contrary to public perceptions most managers understand the need for ethical management. Sheila will share her findings with us.
