There is perhaps no phrase more hackneyed in the corporate world than: “good ethics is good business”. Against the image of the ruthless business baron who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of wealth and power, the slogan tells us there is no friction between being good and being successful.

As luck should have it (for corporations that is) it is argued organisations can stand up and be righteous about their do-gooding, and this will actually lead to the achievement of self-interested business results. The cake can be had and eaten.

But does this ethical catch phrase really hold sway in the corporate world? Events this September suggest not.

The month of the corporate scandal

September 2015 was mired in corporate scandal. German car manufacturer Volkswagen was raked over the coals for installing software in its cars that ensured it falsely passed emission tests. Eleven million cars were involved over a period of seven years. VW’s CEO Martin Winterkorn resigned over the affair and now faces possible criminal charges .

American corporation Turing Pharmaceuticals was publicly vilified for its predatory pricing when it raised the price of the drug Daraprim by 4000%. This is a drug used to treat infections associated with HIV and AIDS. Turing’s CEO Martin Shkreli was described by the Washington Post as “the most hated man in America”.

In Australia trouble arrived at convenience store chain 7-Eleven when the ABC’s documentary series Four Corners revealed its use of exploitative and illegal work practices to reduce its labour costs. Employees were being paid less than half the legal minimum wage. Young and foreign workers were especially targeted. The scandal saw the resignations of 7-Eleven’s chairman Russ Withers, and its CEO Warren Wilmot.

Bad ethics is good business

Each of these scandals has been scrutinised in terms of business ethics. We are not talking here about contentious and nuanced debates about the nature of morality. In these cases the ethical issues relate to cheating, lying, deception, law breaking, exploitation, and merciless profiteering. As far as any common understanding of ethics is concerned these things are on the far side of the thick and grey line that separates right from wrong.

What do these cases have in common? Each one suggests there was an ethos in place in these corporations that held that “bad ethics is good business”. Seven years of highly orchestrated cheating at VW meant increased sales. In 2009 VW became the world’s biggest car manufacturer .

Institutionalised wage fraud and labour exploitation at 7-Eleven kept store costs down, increasing profits both for franchisees and (especially) for the parent company. 7-Eleven has twice been names Australia’s “franchisor of the year”. Price gouging at Turing meant a drug listed on The World Health Organization’s essential medicines list could bolster the company’s profits by exploiting the sick and vulnerable.

Just don’t get caught

The “bad ethics is good business” approach was going well for these businesses until they got caught. These three cases have triggered debates still raging in all sectors of society. Heads have rolled and bottom lines are jeopardised.

Does this really confirm that “bad ethics is bad business”? Of course not. There is no doubt many other corporations are profiting handsomely from deceit, lies, fraud and exploitation. The scandals of September 2015 show that “bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught”.

It’s not just about not getting caught. It is also about the political, legal, social and economic implications of being found out. In the cases of VW, 7-Eleven and Turing there has been a massive public and media outcry about their reprehensible and selfish behaviour.

Bringing these corporations to justice was not the work of one heroic individual, nor the result of government action. It was a collective effort that involved NGOs, scientists, academics, politicians, the media and the general public. This was a victory of civil society and democratic dissent.

So, we can reformulate our proposal: “Bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught … and as long as you aren’t the subject of a public outcry”.

Democratic business ethics

When corporations speak of business ethics their idea is that they can keep it all in house. The ethics of business is largely seen as a matter of corporate self-regulation so that pesky outsiders won’t stick their noses into corporate affairs. The September scandals suggest an entirely different ethics.

If we want ethics in business, what we need is more corporations being caught and more public outcry. For business ethics to be effective they must be pushed onto corporations against their will. Business ethics is democratic, not corporate.

What we can learn from the business events of September is that ethics cannot be left to corporations themselves. Business ethics requires a vigilant democracy where the public and its institutions will hold corporations to account for their actions.

Business ethics, to borrow a phrase, is about keeping the bastards honest.

    Who We are and What We Do

    We are Sumy Designs, LLC. Our business is based in West Lafayette, Indiana.

    Our History: Sumy Designs was created by two sisters, Susan Sullivan and Amy Masson in 2006. Susan had been working as an advertising and marketing director with a large publishing firm while Amy had been teaching computer technology. After leaving those respective career paths, a friend asked if we’d like to make a website for her. We said yes. A friend of this friend saw that website and asked us to make a website for her. We said yes. And so and so forth and now we have created many, many sites for many happy clients across the US, Canada, and England.

    Susan is our designer, in charge of all things creative and beautiful. She has the vision and skills it takes to create custom masterpieces for every project.

    Amy is our resident technical expert, with the skills to make every website function as it should.

    Interesting fact: While the business is based in West Lafayette, Susan lives in the Dallas Forth Worth area. We work together virtually, via email and video chat, to seamlessly design, manage, and maintain projects of all sizes.

    Where’d you come up with the name Sumy? It’s a combination of our first names. SU san and aMY.

    Our Support Team

    While Amy does the behind the scenes work and Susan does the design, there are a lot of other areas that need attention, so we have recruited a team of fabulous people to work with us to bring these jobs to completion. Being a virtual business, we are able to employ people from all over the country to work with us.

    The 18 Coolest Business Cards We’ve Ever Seen

    Flickr

    Whether your business card is plain black on white or tri-dimensional, one thing holds true: business cards say a lot about who you are.

    Like resumes, it gives an employer or a prospective customer a first impression about you. We talked to several of the owners and designers of the most creative cards out there, all of which told us their cards made a lasting impression. For designer Stefan Sagmeister. his card was the jumpstart his agency needed, providing him many of his first projects.

    Roland Murillo told us a sturdy business card is “the equivalent to a firm handshake,” so instead of going for thick cardboard, he made his business card out of wood.

    But creative business cards aren’t just for creative businesses. Joe Duffy has designed cards for non-profits and tourism offices. No matter how creative card is, “you have to prioritize,” he told us. You need to include the important contact information that makes any business card an important networking tool.

    We’re pulled together 18 of the most creative business cards from collector Kariann Burleson’s dailypoetics collection on Flickr. with her permission.

    Editors’ Picks

    Business cards are no longer expected to just share contact info. those days are long gone. They are now a tangible extension to serious marketing plans that are more about interactive communication. These more sophisticated, interactive business cards work harder and market more successfully than the business cards of the past. It’s a forward-thinking branding model that small business should leverage and include in their marketing efforts.

    Case in in point. Although we cannot vouch for any other company’s featured in this article, I know that my statements about our cards are 100% true, and I’m proud of the impact our cards have made on our small business. The free advertising alone is a return worth thousands. Our cards have been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, Entrepreneur Magazine and countless other business journals and articles. At an investment of less than $500 per year, we can attribute tens of thousands of dollars in new business and revenues each year to the attention and recall that our cards promote.

    Do our cards do their job? They work better than I would or could have imagined. I could not have designed them any better.

    The 18 Coolest Business Cards We’ve Ever Seen

    Flickr

    Whether your business card is plain black on white or tri-dimensional, one thing holds true: business cards say a lot about who you are.

    Like resumes, it gives an employer or a prospective customer a first impression about you. We talked to several of the owners and designers of the most creative cards out there, all of which told us their cards made a lasting impression. For designer Stefan Sagmeister. his card was the jumpstart his agency needed, providing him many of his first projects.

    Roland Murillo told us a sturdy business card is “the equivalent to a firm handshake,” so instead of going for thick cardboard, he made his business card out of wood.

    But creative business cards aren’t just for creative businesses. Joe Duffy has designed cards for non-profits and tourism offices. No matter how creative card is, “you have to prioritize,” he told us. You need to include the important contact information that makes any business card an important networking tool.

    We’re pulled together 18 of the most creative business cards from collector Kariann Burleson’s dailypoetics collection on Flickr. with her permission.

    Business cards are no longer expected to just share contact info. those days are long gone. They are now a tangible extension to serious marketing plans that are more about interactive communication. These more sophisticated, interactive business cards work harder and market more successfully than the business cards of the past. It’s a forward-thinking branding model that small business should leverage and include in their marketing efforts.

    Case in in point. Although we cannot vouch for any other company’s featured in this article, I know that my statements about our cards are 100% true, and I’m proud of the impact our cards have made on our small business. The free advertising alone is a return worth thousands. Our cards have been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, Entrepreneur Magazine and countless other business journals and articles. At an investment of less than $500 per year, we can attribute tens of thousands of dollars in new business and revenues each year to the attention and recall that our cards promote.

    Do our cards do their job? They work better than I would or could have imagined. I could not have designed them any better.

    Who We are and What We Do

    We are Sumy Designs, LLC. Our business is based in West Lafayette, Indiana.

    Our History: Sumy Designs was created by two sisters, Susan Sullivan and Amy Masson in 2006. Susan had been working as an advertising and marketing director with a large publishing firm while Amy had been teaching computer technology. After leaving those respective career paths, a friend asked if we’d like to make a website for her. We said yes. A friend of this friend saw that website and asked us to make a website for her. We said yes. And so and so forth and now we have created many, many sites for many happy clients across the US, Canada, and England.

    Susan is our designer, in charge of all things creative and beautiful. She has the vision and skills it takes to create custom masterpieces for every project.

    Amy is our resident technical expert, with the skills to make every website function as it should.

    Interesting fact: While the business is based in West Lafayette, Susan lives in the Dallas Forth Worth area. We work together virtually, via email and video chat, to seamlessly design, manage, and maintain projects of all sizes.

    Where’d you come up with the name Sumy? It’s a combination of our first names. SU san and aMY.

    Our Support Team

    While Amy does the behind the scenes work and Susan does the design, there are a lot of other areas that need attention, so we have recruited a team of fabulous people to work with us to bring these jobs to completion. Being a virtual business, we are able to employ people from all over the country to work with us.

    Chairman and major shareholder of 7-Eleven Russ Withers sits in a Senate Committee hearing in Melbourne. Julian Smith/AAP

    There is perhaps no phrase more hackneyed in the corporate world than: “good ethics is good business”. Against the image of the ruthless business baron who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of wealth and power, the slogan tells us there is no friction between being good and being successful.

    As luck should have it (for corporations that is) it is argued organisations can stand up and be righteous about their do-gooding, and this will actually lead to the achievement of self-interested business results. The cake can be had and eaten.

    But does this ethical catch phrase really hold sway in the corporate world? Events this September suggest not.

    The month of the corporate scandal

    September 2015 was mired in corporate scandal. German car manufacturer Volkswagen was raked over the coals for installing software in its cars that ensured it falsely passed emission tests. Eleven million cars were involved over a period of seven years. VW’s CEO Martin Winterkorn resigned over the affair and now faces possible criminal charges .

    American corporation Turing Pharmaceuticals was publicly vilified for its predatory pricing when it raised the price of the drug Daraprim by 4000%. This is a drug used to treat infections associated with HIV and AIDS. Turing’s CEO Martin Shkreli was described by the Washington Post as “the most hated man in America”.

    In Australia trouble arrived at convenience store chain 7-Eleven when the ABC’s documentary series Four Corners revealed its use of exploitative and illegal work practices to reduce its labour costs. Employees were being paid less than half the legal minimum wage. Young and foreign workers were especially targeted. The scandal saw the resignations of 7-Eleven’s chairman Russ Withers, and its CEO Warren Wilmot.

    Bad ethics is good business

    Each of these scandals has been scrutinised in terms of business ethics. We are not talking here about contentious and nuanced debates about the nature of morality. In these cases the ethical issues relate to cheating, lying, deception, law breaking, exploitation, and merciless profiteering. As far as any common understanding of ethics is concerned these things are on the far side of the thick and grey line that separates right from wrong.

    What do these cases have in common? Each one suggests there was an ethos in place in these corporations that held that “bad ethics is good business”. Seven years of highly orchestrated cheating at VW meant increased sales. In 2009 VW became the world’s biggest car manufacturer .

    Institutionalised wage fraud and labour exploitation at 7-Eleven kept store costs down, increasing profits both for franchisees and (especially) for the parent company. 7-Eleven has twice been names Australia’s “franchisor of the year”. Price gouging at Turing meant a drug listed on The World Health Organization’s essential medicines list could bolster the company’s profits by exploiting the sick and vulnerable.

    Just don’t get caught

    The “bad ethics is good business” approach was going well for these businesses until they got caught. These three cases have triggered debates still raging in all sectors of society. Heads have rolled and bottom lines are jeopardised.

    Does this really confirm that “bad ethics is bad business”? Of course not. There is no doubt many other corporations are profiting handsomely from deceit, lies, fraud and exploitation. The scandals of September 2015 show that “bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught”.

    It’s not just about not getting caught. It is also about the political, legal, social and economic implications of being found out. In the cases of VW, 7-Eleven and Turing there has been a massive public and media outcry about their reprehensible and selfish behaviour.

    Bringing these corporations to justice was not the work of one heroic individual, nor the result of government action. It was a collective effort that involved NGOs, scientists, academics, politicians, the media and the general public. This was a victory of civil society and democratic dissent.

    So, we can reformulate our proposal: “Bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught … and as long as you aren’t the subject of a public outcry”.

    Democratic business ethics

    When corporations speak of business ethics their idea is that they can keep it all in house. The ethics of business is largely seen as a matter of corporate self-regulation so that pesky outsiders won’t stick their noses into corporate affairs. The September scandals suggest an entirely different ethics.

    If we want ethics in business, what we need is more corporations being caught and more public outcry. For business ethics to be effective they must be pushed onto corporations against their will. Business ethics is democratic, not corporate.

    What we can learn from the business events of September is that ethics cannot be left to corporations themselves. Business ethics requires a vigilant democracy where the public and its institutions will hold corporations to account for their actions.

    Business ethics, to borrow a phrase, is about keeping the bastards honest.

    The 18 Coolest Business Cards We’ve Ever Seen

    Flickr

    Whether your business card is plain black on white or tri-dimensional, one thing holds true: business cards say a lot about who you are.

    Like resumes, it gives an employer or a prospective customer a first impression about you. We talked to several of the owners and designers of the most creative cards out there, all of which told us their cards made a lasting impression. For designer Stefan Sagmeister. his card was the jumpstart his agency needed, providing him many of his first projects.

    Roland Murillo told us a sturdy business card is “the equivalent to a firm handshake,” so instead of going for thick cardboard, he made his business card out of wood.

    But creative business cards aren’t just for creative businesses. Joe Duffy has designed cards for non-profits and tourism offices. No matter how creative card is, “you have to prioritize,” he told us. You need to include the important contact information that makes any business card an important networking tool.

    We’re pulled together 18 of the most creative business cards from collector Kariann Burleson’s dailypoetics collection on Flickr. with her permission.

    Business cards are no longer expected to just share contact info. those days are long gone. They are now a tangible extension to serious marketing plans that are more about interactive communication. These more sophisticated, interactive business cards work harder and market more successfully than the business cards of the past. It’s a forward-thinking branding model that small business should leverage and include in their marketing efforts.

    Case in in point. Although we cannot vouch for any other company’s featured in this article, I know that my statements about our cards are 100% true, and I’m proud of the impact our cards have made on our small business. The free advertising alone is a return worth thousands. Our cards have been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, Entrepreneur Magazine and countless other business journals and articles. At an investment of less than $500 per year, we can attribute tens of thousands of dollars in new business and revenues each year to the attention and recall that our cards promote.

    Do our cards do their job? They work better than I would or could have imagined. I could not have designed them any better.

    There is perhaps no phrase more hackneyed in the corporate world than: “good ethics is good business”. Against the image of the ruthless business baron who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of wealth and power, the slogan tells us there is no friction between being good and being successful.

    As luck should have it (for corporations that is) it is argued organisations can stand up and be righteous about their do-gooding, and this will actually lead to the achievement of self-interested business results. The cake can be had and eaten.

    But does this ethical catch phrase really hold sway in the corporate world? Events this September suggest not.

    The month of the corporate scandal

    September 2015 was mired in corporate scandal. German car manufacturer Volkswagen was raked over the coals for installing software in its cars that ensured it falsely passed emission tests. Eleven million cars were involved over a period of seven years. VW’s CEO Martin Winterkorn resigned over the affair and now faces possible criminal charges .

    American corporation Turing Pharmaceuticals was publicly vilified for its predatory pricing when it raised the price of the drug Daraprim by 4000%. This is a drug used to treat infections associated with HIV and AIDS. Turing’s CEO Martin Shkreli was described by the Washington Post as “the most hated man in America”.

    In Australia trouble arrived at convenience store chain 7-Eleven when the ABC’s documentary series Four Corners revealed its use of exploitative and illegal work practices to reduce its labour costs. Employees were being paid less than half the legal minimum wage. Young and foreign workers were especially targeted. The scandal saw the resignations of 7-Eleven’s chairman Russ Withers, and its CEO Warren Wilmot.

    Bad ethics is good business

    Each of these scandals has been scrutinised in terms of business ethics. We are not talking here about contentious and nuanced debates about the nature of morality. In these cases the ethical issues relate to cheating, lying, deception, law breaking, exploitation, and merciless profiteering. As far as any common understanding of ethics is concerned these things are on the far side of the thick and grey line that separates right from wrong.

    What do these cases have in common? Each one suggests there was an ethos in place in these corporations that held that “bad ethics is good business”. Seven years of highly orchestrated cheating at VW meant increased sales. In 2009 VW became the world’s biggest car manufacturer .

    Institutionalised wage fraud and labour exploitation at 7-Eleven kept store costs down, increasing profits both for franchisees and (especially) for the parent company. 7-Eleven has twice been names Australia’s “franchisor of the year”. Price gouging at Turing meant a drug listed on The World Health Organization’s essential medicines list could bolster the company’s profits by exploiting the sick and vulnerable.

    Just don’t get caught

    The “bad ethics is good business” approach was going well for these businesses until they got caught. These three cases have triggered debates still raging in all sectors of society. Heads have rolled and bottom lines are jeopardised.

    Does this really confirm that “bad ethics is bad business”? Of course not. There is no doubt many other corporations are profiting handsomely from deceit, lies, fraud and exploitation. The scandals of September 2015 show that “bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught”.

    It’s not just about not getting caught. It is also about the political, legal, social and economic implications of being found out. In the cases of VW, 7-Eleven and Turing there has been a massive public and media outcry about their reprehensible and selfish behaviour.

    Bringing these corporations to justice was not the work of one heroic individual, nor the result of government action. It was a collective effort that involved NGOs, scientists, academics, politicians, the media and the general public. This was a victory of civil society and democratic dissent.

    So, we can reformulate our proposal: “Bad ethics is good business … unless you get caught … and as long as you aren’t the subject of a public outcry”.

    Democratic business ethics

    When corporations speak of business ethics their idea is that they can keep it all in house. The ethics of business is largely seen as a matter of corporate self-regulation so that pesky outsiders won’t stick their noses into corporate affairs. The September scandals suggest an entirely different ethics.

    If we want ethics in business, what we need is more corporations being caught and more public outcry. For business ethics to be effective they must be pushed onto corporations against their will. Business ethics is democratic, not corporate.

    What we can learn from the business events of September is that ethics cannot be left to corporations themselves. Business ethics requires a vigilant democracy where the public and its institutions will hold corporations to account for their actions.

    Business ethics, to borrow a phrase, is about keeping the bastards honest.

    Who We are and What We Do

    We are Sumy Designs, LLC. Our business is based in West Lafayette, Indiana.

    Our History: Sumy Designs was created by two sisters, Susan Sullivan and Amy Masson in 2006. Susan had been working as an advertising and marketing director with a large publishing firm while Amy had been teaching computer technology. After leaving those respective career paths, a friend asked if we’d like to make a website for her. We said yes. A friend of this friend saw that website and asked us to make a website for her. We said yes. And so and so forth and now we have created many, many sites for many happy clients across the US, Canada, and England.

    Susan is our designer, in charge of all things creative and beautiful. She has the vision and skills it takes to create custom masterpieces for every project.

    Amy is our resident technical expert, with the skills to make every website function as it should.

    Interesting fact: While the business is based in West Lafayette, Susan lives in the Dallas Forth Worth area. We work together virtually, via email and video chat, to seamlessly design, manage, and maintain projects of all sizes.

    Where’d you come up with the name Sumy? It’s a combination of our first names. SU san and aMY.

    Our Support Team

    While Amy does the behind the scenes work and Susan does the design, there are a lot of other areas that need attention, so we have recruited a team of fabulous people to work with us to bring these jobs to completion. Being a virtual business, we are able to employ people from all over the country to work with us.
