“Relativity applies to physics, not ethics”
, quoted one of the greatest scientists
. The complexity of ethics itself has made the relationship between organizationalethics and job satisfaction indefinable. The magnitude to what extent job satisfaction isdependent on the ethics of organization is impossible to measure in this world of business. Since,
an organization’s first and foremost responsibility is to ensure profitability, adopting ethical
means does not confirm satisfaction from the employees. On the other hand, an organizationexposed to unethical operations may create the feeling of fulfillment among the employees, in
which the personal gains are prioritized over organization’s responsibilities.
Thus, trying to finda solid relationship between these two aspects is very much sophisticated. There are variousresearches conducted to define the variable relativity of organizational ethics and jobsatisfaction. Most of them ended up with a proper conclusion, where these two points wouldmeet. Organizational ethics is simply the response of an ethical activity, and job satisfaction isnothing but a perpetual content of an individual. There is somewhat dependency between thesetwo since the majority of employees primarily prefer to work in an organization that promotesethical activities. In case of long term personal benefits this dependency would be very muchineffective. Likewise, if an organization is employed with a satisfied workforce, the ethicalenvironment is created naturally where every employee respect and perform duties accordingly.There are in fact few factors such as age, experience etc. that may affect job satisfaction apartfrom the ethical climate of the organization. On the other hand the factors they play key role interms of determining the ethical climate would include social responsibility, code of conduct,company profit, team interest etc. of an organization. Therefore, establishing a preciserelationship between these would determine relevance.
