What is the influence of corporate culture on business ethics?
Corporate culture includes the behavioral patterns, concepts, values, ceremonies, and rituals that take place in the organization. It gives the members of the organization meaning as well as the internal rules of behavior. When these values, beliefs, customs, rules, and ceremonies are accepted, shared, and circulated throughout the organization, they represent its culture. All organizations, not just corporations, have some sort of culture, and thus we use the terms organizational culture and corporate culture interchangeably.
