Even good people can be better at ethics

The study of ethics is not about telling you what the rules are. Ethics is an exploration of questions about the nature of right and wrong. It’s about developing a thoughtful framework to help you decide what you should do when the answers aren’t clear. The Prindle Institute for Ethics is one of the largest collegiate ethics institutes in the country and is dedicated to encouraging and fostering the study of ethics - in all its facets.

GETTING ETHICS TO WORK

AUGUST 4, 2020

Standing Up for Yourself at Work

What do you do when your employer makes an unreasonable request? Is it better to just fold and do the thing, or is it possible to use moral reasoning skills to find the middle ground? Getting Ethics to Work’s resident ethicist Andy Cullison and producer Kate Berry discuss a listener question about what to do when your boss asks you to do something and you don’t want to. On this episode and every episode, we dig into the complicated moral issues people face at work.
