Abstract

In recent times, the ethical dimensions and challenges associated with corporate strategies in ethics are a matter of contention. The issue of ethics is paramount as it dictates a wide range of behaviors in a diversified culture. This can be incorporated as an organizational strategy to have a competitive edge of organizations. Nevertheless, to minimize the bottlenecks related to ethical dilemmas, a morale workforce and an inclusive organizational culture is essential. A study on the integrity-oriented approach in corporate strategies can explore ethical decision-making frameworks and the role of HR in developing and implementing ethical practices. In view of that, a mixed approach, with a quantitative and qualitative survey was conducted in randomly selected companies in the UAE. The statistical analysis, with the help of SPSS 24 confirms the correlation between this model with its latent variables, corporate responsibility, corporate ethics, and corporate governance towards a strategic move. Moreover, the outcomes establish that this approach can enhance competence, integrity, professional responsibility, and a respectful mind towards a sustainable future by corporate citizenship.

Keywords: Integrity-oriented Approach, Corporate Responsibility, Corporate Ethics, Corporate Governance, Corporate Citizenship.
