Ethical Values and Social Responsibilities among Knowledge Workers for Productivity and Success

Shafiq ur-Rehman, Nasrullah Khan Khilji


This millennium is the era of the globalization and info-tech. Advancement in communication technologies, melting boundaries and attractive incentives from the multinational organizations demand strong ethical and social responsibilities with effective organizational culture among its employees for productive results. Fundamentally, civil society organizations are considered development agents as they work as watch-dog monitoring the social abuses. But the study suggests that it’s not government agencies to impose rules rather knowledge workers (KW) should realize and pay due respect to ethical and social values. The culture and internal environment play very important role where every individual respect the general rules and they do get inspiration from their leaders, supervisors and employers.  To get the best from people and their respective organizations, effective leadership role of the executives is crucial.  The study concludes that every executive must strongly admit the importance of ethics and social responsibilities as the future success of organizations demands thorough understanding of interaction between productivity and ethics among knowledge workers. Organizations should concentrate on introducing HRD programmes, strengthen service orientation and create synergies to educate their staff for the ethical norms while unlocking their potentials in order to achieve long lasting productive results.

Keywords: ICT, Technological Advancement, Organizational Effectiveness, Ethics and Responsibilities, Knowledge Management, Learning and Development.
