This chapter examines the organisations we work in and is divided into three sections. It examines the concept of organisational culture and highlights how ethical behaviour is managed in organisations, with details of competencies. It then focusses on three pillars of ethical organisations; ethical leaders, ethical staff, and systems and structures within an organisation. It utilises the concept of whistleblowing to illustrate the collapse of the ethical conversation in organisations. Whistleblowing is an important concept as it lies at the intersection of interprofessional ethics. This is because professionals can manifest ethical aims through different forms of behaviour in line with their own professional standards. Even when the aims of those standards are aligned the route to them may not be. Finally, it focusses on the notion of person-organisation‘fit’.

Keywords:   whistleblowing, competency/competencies, ethical behaviour, culture, regulation, ethical organisation, ethical leadership
