Show Notes

As much as the COVID-19 pandemic has brought out the best and worst in human behavior, it has also brought out the best and worst in business behavior. This virtual series seeks to learn from the ethical successes and failures of business during the pandemic to guide the future promise and purpose of business. 

Series facilitators, Christopher Michaelson and Harry Van Buren III, the Barbara and David A. Koch Endowed Chair of Business Ethics at the University of St. Thomas’ Opus College of Business, convene nationally recognized thought leaders from business, medicine, academia, and civil society to explore ethical challenges that faced and continue to face business. 

In part three of this series, Michaelson and Van Buren are joined by Joanne Ciulla, Professor and Director of the Institute for Ethical Leadership at Rutgers Business School, and Doug Lepisto, Associate Professor of Management and Co-Director of the Center for Principled Leadership and Business Strategy at Western Michigan University Haworth College of Business, to discuss how to distinguish essential from non-essential workers in an intersected global economy as well as how businesses should attract and retain workers during and after the Great Resignation.
