Business Ethics across Cultures: A Social Cognitive Model.
This article examines the content of a recently published article entitled “Business Ethics across Cultures: A Social Cognitive Model.” The authors argue that different cultures have different views regarding business ethics and how they should be applied in various situations and contexts. They propose a social cognitive model which suggests that people are influenced by their cultural heritage, values, beliefs, and experiences when making ethical decisions in business-related contexts.
The authors provide an overview of the current literature on cross-cultural differences in business ethics, explaining how culture affects moral judgments and the factors influencing ethical decision-making. They also discuss some critical issues related to cultural differences, such as individualism versus collectivism, power distance, uncertainty avoidance, and the effect of national culture on ethical norms.

The authors then introduce their social cognitive model, which proposes that business ethics across cultures are influenced by three elements: the individual’s moral standards, the organizational culture in which they operate, and societal culture. This model is explored through examples from a range of different countries to illustrate how cultural beliefs affect business ethical decision-making.
Finally, the article outlines potential implications for business practice and suggests further research directions for exploring cross-cultural differences in business ethics. The authors conclude that the social cognitive model proposed in this article provides an essential framework for understanding the influence of cultural heritage on ethical decision-making within organizations and can help to inform effective strategies for managing diversity.
