    Ethical perceptions of business students in a New Zealand university: do gender, age and work experience matter?Gabriel Eweje & Margaret Brunton - 2009 - Business Ethics: A European Review 19 (1):95-111.
    Ethical issues at the workplace have once again become topical and important due to considerable adverse publicity surrounding reports of unethical business practices by corporate managers. Accordingly, this paper re‐visits the question of whether gender, age and work experience do have an effect on ethical judgement, using 655 business students as respondents. This is necessary as business students are likely to become managers during their career and will face complex ethical concerns and dilemmas in their daily, routine affairs. The findings (...)

    The Role of MNEs in Community Development Initiatives in Developing Countries.Gabriel Eweje - 2006 - Business and Society 45 (2):93-129.

    The influence of culture on ethical perception held by business students in a New Zealand university.Margaret Brunton & Gabriel Eweje - 2010 - Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility 19 (4):349-362.

Corporate scandals mean that there is enhanced interest in ensuring that ethical content is included in curricula in universities. In this study, we re-visit the question of whether culture has an influence on ethical perceptions of workplace scenarios, using students enrolled in a College of Business in a (...)

    Corporate response to an ethical incident: the case of an energy company in New Zealand.Gabriel Eweje & Minyu Wu - 2010 - Business Ethics 19 (4):379-392.
    The ethical behaviour and social responsibility of private companies, and in particular large corporations, is an important area of enquiry in contemporary social, economic and political thinking. In the past, a company's behaviour would be considered responsible as long as it stayed within the law of the society in which it operated or existed. Although this may be necessary, it is no longer sufficient. In this paper, we examine an energy company's response to an ethical incident in New Zealand which (...)

    The Roles of HRM in CSR: Strategic Partnership or Operational Support?Harsha Sarvaiya, Gabriel Eweje & Jim Arrowsmith - 2018 - Journal of Business Ethics 153 (3):825-837.
    As the implementation of corporate social responsibility strategy requires promoting employee participation and initiating meaningful changes in organisational culture, the involvement of the human resource management function in policy formulation and implementation is highly desirable. The relationship between the HRM and CSR functions is, however, under-investigated than other areas. Hence, there is a lack of clarity concerning HRM roles and the conditions under which they may be strategic or operational in nature. By drawing on data from interviews with 29 CSR (...)

Although this study demonstrated mixed results, the identified patterns in the data provide useful insight into the perceptions of diverse cultural groups. There are two main findings.
