ABSTRACT
The author highlights the need for human resources (HR) professionals to reprimand or question unethical conduct in their organisations to avoid a similar situation like the phone hacking scandal at the "News of the World" journal. Professor Roger Steare of the Cass Business School says such incidents could be avoided if HR staff were more willing to accept responsibility for behavioural standards in their companies. Steare cites as example the legal and medical professions, which practice self-regulation.
