Shipper discussed the employee-owned company management style, which he has studied at businesses including W.L. Gore & Associates, Herman Miller, Equal Exchange, Mondragon in Spain, and the John Lewis Partnership in the UK. This type of management fits well with Haier’s Rendanheyi model, which promotes employees realizing their own value in the process of creating values for others,Ji Guangqiang, Director of Haier’s Culture Centersaid.
Article
The authors explore corporate ethical values and organizational commitment in marketing. They (1) discuss corporate ethical values as a component of corporate culture, (2) review the literature on organizational commitment, (3) hypothesize a positive relationship between corporate ethical values and organizational commitment, and (4) empirically test the relationship with data from more than 1200 professional marketers, representing subsamples of marketing managers, marketing researchers, and advertising agency managers. The study results provide strong evidence of a positive association between corporate ethical values and organizational commitment. Given previous research demonstrating a strong link between commitment and specific organizational benefits, corporate ethics may be not only an important societal issue, but a key organizational issue as well.
