Our every dealing and matter contains ethics. Ethics is a part of business. With good ethics your business can grow very well as you would then have strong relationship with your clients, customers and other businessmen. Many businessmen don't believe in ethics and they are not much appreciated by anyone (employees, customers and businessmen). They don't mix it and so they are titled arrogant.

They had better mix. Would you want to do business with a company that you knew to be unethical? We don't always know until we have an experience and we've been cheated. That's where caveat emptor comes in (let the buyer beware).

In the early 90s, the IRS mandated that all employees receive ethics training. Unfortunately, you really can't teach someone to be ethical. Honesty, reliability, responsibility, etc, should be part of one's upbringing. By the time we are old enough to go to work, we know those things or we don't. I don't know how many people will recall this, but every White House employee was required to take remedial ethics training two or three years ago. See how well it worked?
