This article examines organizational integrity and moral climates in business. It argues that an organization with integrity has several characteristics that distinguish it from individual integrity and that some central characteristics of individual integrity are less important for organizational integrity. It identifies the norms and values that contribute to a moral climate and considers the role of incentives as they support or inhibit organizational integrity. It also evaluates whether for-profit organizations can still have organizational integrity and remain profitable.
