Moral Foundations in the Corporate World
An International Analysis
People often make moral claims, such as: “Slavery is wrong”; "Censorship is unjust” or “Polygamy is wrong”, but what exactly are they doing when making such statements? Certainly they express their moral views but are they saying anything true? And if so what makes them true? Some scientists argue that moral claims can only be true in a belief-dependent way, others maintain that morality is culturally relative, whilst some others posit that moral claims are objective. Thus, one might be inclined to think that moral claims fit into all categories.
This survey aims to understand which are the basic moral dimensions characteristic in the Corporate World, also trying to explore whether moral foundations differ between leaders and non-leaders; males and females; and whether demographic characteristics (status, position, age, education etc.) underlie any moral foundation differences.
By filling out this online survey you have contributed to the scientific understanding of what makes people agree or disagree so passionately about what is right or wrong.
As highlighted in the introduction of the survey all data is anonymously collected, and will be merged in a series of data files which will not contain any information that could lead anyone to identify who provided the data. Thus, your privacy and anonymity is carefully guarded.
A report with the summary of findings will be generated once the data has been collected and analysed.
So if you are interested to learn more about and the main Moral Foundations characteristic to the Corporate World, please visit www.managerpublishing.hu early October.
