The Theology of Work Project has comprehensive guide to the topic of ethics in the workplace. ? You can download a copy of the PDF (54 pages) here – ?Theology of Work Project – Ethics
Alistair Mackenzie and Wayne Kirkland define the topic as follows:
Ethics is about knowing and doing what is good or right, and workplace ethics is about knowing and doing what is good or right at work. For the Christian, this means applying the Bible and other resources of the Christian faith to help decide and do what is ethical or moral at work.?
The authors explore three general approaches to ethics which have achieved widespread use both in Christian moral thinking and in the world at large. The approaches are:
- Command?? What do the rules say is the right way to act?
- Consequences?? What actions are most likely to bring about the best outcome?
- Character?? What kind of moral person?do I want to be or become?”
Within the PDF document, these three approaches are explored, (a) using a systematic approach, and then (b) in narrative form using a case study of Wayne the Christian car dealer. ?An extensive bibliography is also provided. ?
This is a high quality resource for anyone wanting to teach or explore the topic of workplace ethics.?
