An Interview with Mira Dewji, Attorney, Adjunct Professor and Strategic Advisor

Focus on ethical outcomes, not merely on processes. ...I would encourage organizations to spend time and effort developing an ethical identity that might provide guidance on shaping the relationship and impact they have with society. Root policies and procedures with a set of underlying values, consistent with organizational identity and culture, and assess success based on ethical outcomes.

Ask an Ethics Expert: Ron Carucci

Question for Ron Carucci our featured February / March expert. See more questions and answers online!
Q) I am planning on leaving my job in the next month or so, but I am due to receive a bonus in about a month. I know that I will receive it even though I have only worked at the company for the past few months. How soon after I receive the bonus is it ok to quit?
A) If you have flexibility on your timing, work with your boss to make the transition as non-disruptive to the organization as possible.  In a world that grows smaller by the day, people you think you may never see again can wind up as future clients, or bosses years down the line. Always work to leave any organization on the best terms possible. Unless there has been mutual dissatisfaction, it’s likely your employer will be quite surprised at your early exit. If you are leaving for a better opportunity, don’t be surprised if you get some blowback. It takes time and money to fill jobs, and leaving after only a few months warrants a good reason.
