I think that the first and main way to encourage high ethical standards is to lead by example. Leading by example does a lot for businesses and can help to ensure that lower level employees are taught the right way to do business. Forget all about the wrong way, if an employee is taught the right way to do work, and continues to do work the right way, any other way will be wrong, maybe unethical, and possibly illegal. Communication between managers and employees is key to ensuring good work ethics. The next step is to ensure that right and wrong is defined in black and white so that employees know the difference. Businesses have a code of ethics and every employee needs a copy for themselves and one that is signed and returned to the company.  If an employee does not have something in writing stating that he or she cannot do something a particular way, then he or she will be able to claim that they did not know that it was wrong. This will be easier for business to define as time passes by because they will learn what is acceptable, or ethical, and what is unacceptable, or unethical.

I think that ethical standards start with the top tier management teams and waterfalls from there. Every employee of a company should be encouraged to maintain an ethical standard for the company but it is up to management to ensure that the standards are being upheld. If you are the bottom tier employee, your manager is responsible; their managers are responsible for them, and this continues until the top executives of the company are reached.
