This study examines the relative influences of corporate ethics codes, Machiavellianism, and gender on various components of sales professionals' decision making in ethical situations. The results of a mail survey of American Marketing Association members suggest that the ethical climate of an organization influences a salesperson's perceptions of an ethical problem and his/her perceptions of alternative courses of actions. The most ethically sensitive salespeople were found to be more agreeable with both punitive and nonpunitive types of remedial actions and less agreeable with a no-action alternative. The results ...

Salespeople with a service ethic rise to the top, by Roy Chitwood ...
Therefore, a professional salesperson must be well schooled in how to utilize these qualities to build lasting client relationships. Most sales literature and training today focuses almost exclusively on closing the sale. Sales trainers pay lip service to identifying customers' needs and building long-term relationships and downplay the importance of these goals in achieving the sale itself.

Gary Welch was hoping his early December meeting with a prospective business partner, a local builder, would go well. What he didn't expect was that he'd all but close the deal in that one meeting on the strength of this company's ethical reputation. "We were just wanting to build a relationship with him where we would act as his exclusive lender," says Welch, vice president of HomeBanc Mortgage Corporation, an Atlanta-based retail mortgage lender. For HomeBanc, prospective business partners are essentially prospective customers. When a deal is signed, HomeBanc becomes a builder's preferred ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In 1992 Hollywood released a film titled "Glengarry Glen Ross," the story of a failing real estate office in which four real estate salesmen are told by management that two of them will face certain termination if significant property sales are not immediately forthcoming. The top two producers are promised substantial bonuses. How the salesmen generate leads and pursue sales over the next 24 hours within a pressure cooker of unrelenting scrutiny from management and intense competition among themselves has become an academic study of sales ethics used by university marketing departments throughout the country.
