[solved] Which of the following are major drivers of unethical strategies and business behavior?
A lack on the part of many companies to implement and strongly enforce codes of ethical conduct, the excessively strong profit motive that pervades the business community, and the obscenely high bonuses and stock options paid to top executives that motivate/cause these overpaid executives to violate ethical standards
Fierce competitive pressures that inflict losses on companies and may even force some to file for bankruptcy, lax government enforcement of ethical standards and ethical business conduct, and the ease with which businesspeople who engage in unethical behavior can bribe corrupt public officials not to prosecute them or their companies
The drive among most businesses to maximize profits and return on capital investment, the ethically corrupt nature of most businesspeople, and a lack on the part of many companies to implement and strongly enforce codes of ethical conduct
A company culture that puts profitability and good business performance ahead of ethical behavior; lax oversight by company boards of directors that enables unscrupulous pursuit of personal gain, wealth, and other selfish interests; and heavy pressures on company managers to meet or beat short-term performance targets
The excessively strong profit motive that pervades the business community, the excessive bonuses and stock options that top executives can earn if company profits are excellent, and a widespread belief in the business community that ethical behavior is not necessary or even relevant
