- Sexual harassment does not consequently happen
- Business is a social structured institute where the rules of engagement are defined by
norms, thus the way you behave in business is according to a set of rules not given as

- Rules are enforced, a convention (ex. Dress code) rules are come to an understanding
point between people
- Some rules may be more difficult to define what the rules of engagement are (internal
and external engagements/socialization)
- Time consuming to step back from a situation and explain the explicit rules, social
norms, checks and balances in a social sense
- Goal: building a business culture where rules are clear, where the culture and climate
are open as possible, rules are in place to govern when something is wrong

- Difficulty (dilemma) between acting as an individual (own behalf) or acting on behalf on
the corporation/institution
