ETHICAL ORIENTATIONS OF BUSINESS MANAGERS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES: EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE FROM A MULTICULTURAL BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

Auther : By: Dr. Fuad N. Al-Shaikh

          The aim of this study was to investigate the ethical orientations of business managers in developing countries with special reference to the case of the United Arab Emirates, a country that has a multicultural business environment.

          The findings indicate that some demographic characteristics of the respondents have associations with their ethical orientations, but the company features do not have any correlation with ethical orientations of members.  The findings also indicate that the respondents’ ethical orientations do not differ by the culture group that the respondents belong to.

          Furthermore, the results point out to the fact that the respondents have the tendency to make compromises under pressure of reality.  They seem to give importance to profit over product safety and to condone lying to other companies’ representatives.

         Many institutions must exert considerable effort if ethics are to be adopted and taken seriously by both business managers and business organizations.  Such efforts are also significant for developing international ethical standards.  The family, governments, schools, universities, international organizations, such as the International Transparency Organization and the World Bank efforts are highly needed.  The role of these organizations and many others must not be restricted to preaching only but to being the symbol and taking the lead in transparency and honesty in their practices.
