IN THIS SUMMARY

In You’ve Got to Be Kidding!, Nan DeMars explains why companies that have distinct ethical cultures are the best companies for which to work and also the most profitable. These companies have a strategic competitive advantage because they know how to resolve ethical dilemmas before they cause major problems. Ethical dilemmas are the result of human weaknesses and, therefore, will always exist. An ethical dilemma occurs when people must choose between two negatives (i.e., disobey their boss or defy their own conscience). Dilemmas cause stress that is harmful to employees’ health and productivity, while the company’s reputation and profits eventually suffer as well. By cultivating an ethical climate, companies can ensure that life in the workplace can be aligned with authentic morals and ethics.
