The Institute of Business Ethics (IBE) said that Tim Melville-Ross, chair of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), has agreed to become its president. He takes up the position on 1 July and succeeds Sir Robert Worcester, founder of Ipsos-MORI, who has served as IBE president since 2001.
Chris Moorhouse, chairman of the IBE, welcomed the appointment: “Tim has given excellent support and encouragement to the Institute as a member of its Advisory Council. I am delighted that his advice will continue to be available to us in his new role.”
Melville-Ross said: “I have been involved with the IBE since 1994 and over the years, much has changed. A globalised economy, a diverse workforce, a public more alert to ethical issues has meant that businesses cannot be complacent when it comes to business ethics.
“Calls for greater trust in business miss the point – trust needs to be earned. A culture change is called for, to educate tomorrow’s workforce so that they consider the ethical dimensions of any business decision. I look forward to working with the IBE team in encouraging greater debate about how trust can be regained.”
