ABSTRACT

Conceptualizing ethical management from both the wide-active and narrow-passive perspectives, this study examines the ethical management system and its impacts on the managerial performance of public bodies in Korea. Ethical management of public bodies has been narrowly viewed from a passive perspective (e.g., legislation for anti-corruption, compliance with the Acts, and revision of corporate governance). According to the literature, however, it can be defined as a broader concept from the view of corporate social responsibility and accountability. In this context, the present study explores the influence of ethical management on organizational and financial performance using annual performance evaluation data from government for 30 public corporations and 37 quasi-governmental agencies for the years 2011-2013. Based on the results, theoretical and policy implications for the ethical management of public bodies are discussed.
