The Value of Ethics and Moral Reasoning in Business

The Prindle Institute will conduct a new study as part of its ongoing "Value of Ethics and Moral Reasoning in Business" project to determine if there are any correlations between capacities for moral reasoning of employees in a company’s workforce and positive performance. Our goal is to kickstart a field of research on the value of ethics and moral reasoning in business, thereby contributing practical and pragmatic justification for investment in humanities and ethics education. We propose to use the Defining Issues Test (DIT) in conjunction with a survey to look for potential correlations between a capacity for moral reasoning (as assessed by the DIT) and corporate performance (as assessed by the executive of that corporation) as well as individual career success.
