The modern corporate world as a whole is in the process of acquiring a conscience. Concepts like business ethics and corporate social responsibility are becoming part of the main stream of thought in management theory and practice. One of the terms we hear sometimes in the current ethical debate is “integrity”. It is perhaps a better word than “ethics” because while the word “ethics” conveys a sense of good and bad, right and wrong, do’s and don’ts, the term “integrity” gives a sense of character, integration and wholeness.
However the concept of integrity can be viewed in many dimensions: ethical, psychological, spiritual, and collective. This issue presents such a multidimensional approach to integrity in the modern corporate context and in the light of an integral vision of human development.
