Hang a crucifix.
Or a photo or Martin Luther King or Mother Teresa.
Or maybe a quote from Kahlil Gibran.
Or Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
That’s the conclusion of a study in India that found that when workers have something on display in their work space that conveys some kind of moral message, managers are less likely to ask them to do something they might perceive as unethical.
No word on whether such a thing might work in the U.S.
There’s also been no research on whether those horrible “Successories” posters and plaques and doodads might actually encourage managers to ask their employees to do something unethical.
But The Curmudgeon suspects they would.
