Chapter 14: Measuring and developing an ethical organizational climate
Restricted access

Over the past two decades, researchers have established ethical organizational climate as an important antecedent to such organizational outcomes as higher morale and lower turnover. However, few have explored what leads to an ethical organizational climate. In this review, we examine current methods and research approaches to the study of ethical climate and propose a nomological categorization of existing antecedents. Integrating Victor and Cullen's (1987, 1988) ethical climate framework and Newman et al.'s (2017) five commonly observed ethical climate dimensions, we suggest tools for practitioners and researchers seeking to measure ethical climate.
