Ethics Scholar Interview: Caroline Webb, author of How to Have a Good Day and Expert on Behavioral Sciences and Ethics

"The primary focus of applied behavioral science to date has been public policy – something I applaud as a one-time policy wonk myself. But there’s a lot of untapped opportunity in business. At the moment, behavioral insights are mostly being applied by folks in the marketing function, and to a lesser extent in strategic decision-making. I’m always surprised that there isn’t more making its way into the people and culture domain, both through the HR function and in everyday management. But I’m optimistic that this will change – and it’s my mission to help change it"

Ask an Ethics Expert

Question for David Mayer, our June expert. See more questions and answers online!
Q: I was CCed on an email containing salary information of my colleagues. I saw that one of my teammates is making more than I am but they have less responsibility than I do. Can I use this info to my
advantage and renegotiate my compensation?

A: Sometimes ignorance is bliss. It is tough when you find out a coworker is better compensated than you (and with less responsibility nonetheless). Your reaction is consistent with what we would expect from equity theory which posits that people feel it is unfair when someone believes they contribute more but get rewarded less than another person. Fortunately, there is a large scientific literature on negotiation to help you figure out what to do.  Continue reading >>
