Ramifications of Corruption in Organizations

One of the most important of the Ten Commandments is the Eighth Commandment – THOU SHALT NOT STEAL (You shall not steal) which clearly says “Do not Steal” and prohibits theft. There are many forms of “stealing”. Whereas robbery and burglary are “blue collar” theft, corruption is a “white collar” theft. This corruption also violates the 8th Commandment. However, whereas the law and society is harsh towards those committing robbery and burglary, we seem to be quite benevolent and lenient towards those indulging in corruption.

Is corruption really that harmful?

Well, there may be many ramifications of corruption, but one effect I have observed is:

“When Corruption comes in, Discipline goes out”

What happens when discipline deteriorates in an organization?

Well, I will discuss this effect of corruption in my blog in the near future.

 Meanwhile, just remember the dictum:

“Corruption In –> Discipline Out”
