On 12 and 13 June, the conference on “Work! -- We could do things differently. We take thinking further” took place in Zurich. LEIZ Deputy-Director Prof. Dr Carmen Tanner spoke about erosion and (re)activation of ethical values in business. Prof. Tanner explained that moral misconduct is ubiquitous. Such misconduct is caused by structural characteristics of companies and markets as well as regular psychological processes: Scholars are well aware of the many mechanisms that affects the individual’s tendency to follow their “moral compass”. Against this background, Prof. Tanner shared her findings on the role of psychological factors and corporate culture on ethical behavior, and shared her thoughts about how values could be reactivated.
The conference was organised by the Institute for Systemic Impulses, Development and Leadership GmbH and the Wülser Inversini Organisational Consulting GmbH. Its objective was to provide thought leadership for further developing the world of work, and to consider influences from the macro-perspective of social developments and from the micro-perspective of human experience and behaviour.. Prof. Tanner was joined, among others, by Dr Thomas Sattelberger, former member of the Management Boards of Deutsche Telekom AG, Continental AG and Lufthansa, and former head of the Zeppelin University Foundation.
