Abstract:

This study examines the relationship between organisational ethics and organisational outcomes based on the justice theory and cognitive dissonance theory. The sample data are derived from a questionnaire survey of 237 managers in Singapore. Results obtained from decision trees indicate significant and positive links between ethical culture constructs (i.e. top management support for ethical behaviour and the association between ethical behaviour and career success within the organisation) and job satisfaction. Further, there is a significant and positive link between job satisfaction and organisational commitment. Also, for different levels of job satisfaction, particular aspects of organisational ethics are associated with organisational commitment. The results suggest that organisational leaders can use organisational ethics as a means to generate favourable organisational outcomes.
