Research activities

Among other things, Michel Séguin is interested in how organizations manage the ethical component in a variety of related fields, including organizational behaviour, leadership, decision-making theories and corporate governance.

His vision for organizational ethics

There are established methods for inserting ethics into all organizational practices. Managers play a key role in the implementation and application of ethics. It is important to define the relevant ethical principles from the outset, and to adopt a process for ensuring the adoption of behaviours that comply with these principles at all levels of the organization.
