Differences between Work-related Ethics and Non-work Ethics, and the Effects of Religiosity
Journal of Managerial Issues
The purpose of this study was to determine if differences exist in individuals' perceptions of ethics in the work context compared to non-work contexts, and to assess the effects of religiosity, from a traditional Christian perspective, on work- related ethical beliefs as well as non-work beliefs. We found that ethical beliefs are associated with religiosity and our results also indicated that there are differences in people's ethical beliefs concerning work contexts versus non-work contexts. Additionally, while much of the empirical research on business ethics uses student samples, we obtained our results using a sample of employed individuals.
