In today's competitive business landscape, maintaining ethical standards within organisations is crucial for sustainable growth and reputation. This study aims to delve into the public perception regarding the impact of unethical behaviour on organisational performance, focusing on Chennai, India. The objectives of this research include analysing the main effects of unethical behaviour in the workplace, identifying factors contributing to such behaviour, examining strategies to promote ethical conduct, and proposing guidelines to mitigate unethical behaviour. The research methodology involves a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches. Surveys, interviews, and case studies will be conducted to gather data from employees, managers, and stakeholders in Chennai-based organisations. Statistical analysis and thematic coding will be employed to analyse the data and draw meaningful conclusions. Findings from this study are expected to shed light on the prevailing attitudes towards unethical behaviour in Chennai's organisational context. It will identify common forms of unethical conduct and their ramifications on organisational performance. Factors contributing to unethical behaviour, such as lack of accountability, inadequate policies, and cultural influences, will be explored. Furthermore, the research will highlight effective strategies for promoting ethical behaviour within organisations. This may include implementing robust ethics training programs, fostering a culture of transparency and integrity, and establishing clear protocols for reporting unethical conduct. Recommendations will be tailored to the specific challenges faced by Chennai-based organisations, considering cultural nuances and industry dynamics. By offering practical insights and actionable recommendations, this study aims to assist organisations in Chennai in addressing the scourge of unethical behaviour and enhancing their overall performance. Ultimately, fostering an ethical work environment not only improves organisational reputation but also fosters employee satisfaction, customer trust, and long-term success.
