Special Issue: Business Ethics in the Virtual Work Environment

Published on

Asian Journal of Business Ethics special issue: Business Ethics in the Virtual Work Environment: Challenges to Educators and Practitioners

Covid-19 has thrown new challenges for imparting knowledge of business ethics to students and employees of business organizations. With large parts of the workforce operating virtually now and possibly into the future, a shift seems imminent as far as business ethics and values in practice are concerned. 

In light of this, we invite articles that discuss and study business ethics (education issues and others) in the new digital age and under post Covid-19 norms. We also welcome cases (with teaching notes) whichcan drive business ethics values on practitioners and learners of businesses.

Some of the questions whose answers we are looking forward to are:

  1. What kind of ethical values should be bestowed to online learners and what should be the pedagogy?
  2. Should ethics in virtual work environment be a standalone course or should be part of Business Ethics course in the Business School curriculum?
  3. What are best practices for aligning employees towards appropriate behaviour in virtual work environment and how best to assess them?
  4. What are ethical dilemmas plaguing all the stakeholders in businesses in current times?
  5. What should be the pedagogical approaches to business ethics education in the new normal. Will multi-media cases, video cases be more appropriate in business ethics education in a digitalized world , especially in the post covid situation?
