The modern workforce is putting increasing emphasis on the importance of ethical leadership. Employers can protect their organizations from unethical behaviors by making good hiring and leadership decisions and implementing good policies and practices. Moral character is more than the decisions one makes in big, dramatic moments. Character manifests itself every day in a million little ways.
To explore the role of moral character in the workplace, we interviewed Erik Helzer, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the research track at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. His research focuses on moral character, ethical behavior, and self and social assessment.
