Undergraduate Honors Theses

As a final application, I consider sentiment analysis ...

This report discussed the preliminary results of a U.S. Geological Survey and the State of California joint investigation of Monterey Bay.

The report noted that since the early 1940s continuous heavy pumping along the coastal area of the Salinas Valley had depleted the groundwater storage and lowered the piezometric levels ...

Two-Pronged Approach To Imbedding Values In Organizations, Evans Lusuli 2018 Kennesaw State University

Two-Pronged Approach To Imbedding Values In Organizations, Evans Lusuli

The Siegel Institute Journal of Applied Ethics

The purpose for this paper is to argue that in order to successfully implement values and develop an ethically conscious or morally intelligent organizations, a two-pronged strategy must be adopted. A two-pronged strategy is an approach that seeks to imbed ethical values at both the organizational level – which, in this case includes the organization’s leadership, and empowering employees at the individual level to do what Mary Gentile (2010) describes in her book, as giving voice to values. Empowering employees to speak their minds when they know what is right is an avenue that enables employees to imbed ethical values ...
