Abstract

This paper analyses the results of a survey of large Australian firms to determine (a) the scale and scope of ethical practices in the firm; and (b) the relationship between the different types of firm manager and the firm's ethical practices. The results suggest that whether or not a firm follows a written code of ethics appears to be strongly related to the age category of the senior manager. The level of education and the employment background of the senior manager do not seem to be related to whether the firm has a written code or not.
