Recent scandals have inspired a number of high-level CEOs to make business ethics a corporate mandate. Even before the latest wave of corporate scandals, many had already successfully integrated the values of honesty and integrity into their overall business strategy. Above the Board examines the views and initiatives of these forward-thinking executives, providing answers to key questions, such as How do you encourage a culture of values and ethics within the company? What are the critical elements for building a more honest organization? How can you motivate employees to embrace your initiatives? How do you put your company on the path to complete transparency? How do you combine ethics and operations into a profitable strategy?
