Scott Wiltermuth, Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations and Psychology at the USC Marshall School of Business, will demonstrates how tactics that are designed to boost motivation and effort in the workplace may also boost the incidence of unethical behavior. In particular, he will show that even relatively subtle tactics that do not involve larger rewards for unethical behavior can increase the risk of unethical behavior. The presentation therefore highlights non-obvious tips for human resources professionals looking to monitor and, ultimately, to curb unethical behavior within their firms.
