Traditionally organizational culture and work ethics were not considered as activities that could add economic value and competitively deal with challenges. But this notion has undergone a huge transformation. Nowadays, companies that promote ethical values and behaviours via their organizational culture are likely to report better financial performance and goodwill in comparison to their counterparts. Companies are now recognizing that encouraging high ethical behaviour standards may help employees to be more open with their feelings, emotions, ideas and expressions which may pave way towards the formation of such an organization culture that may lead to providing high quality customer service. As businesses today compete in the global marketplace having a prominent presence of e-media and social media, as a result the employee-employer relationship has experienced immense changes.

But in the race to remain ahead in competition, companies forget to take care and nurture the ethical aspects of employees that further results in frauds and scams resulting in permanent damage for the company. Given the relevance of work ethics in print media industry, the contents of this book attempts to depict the relationship between the organizational culture of a company and the extent of ethical compliance adopted by its employees.
