Abstract

In order to understand attitudes towards work-related ethics, a survey was conducted among employees in two European countries, Greece and Cyprus, facing similar financial problems and requiring financial assistance from the European Commission, the ECB and the IMF. An attempt was also made to investigate whether such differences, if any, were linked to differences in employee age, gender, job position, nationality and organization’s size. The findings indicate that no significant differences among employees exist with regard to employee age and organization’s size. Significant differences were found between the two samples regarding gender, job position and nationality. It is recommended that ethics education be integral to a business curriculum and that teaching methodologies explore ways in which to develop moral reasoning in students.
