Integrity in HRD.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on integrity in human resource development (HRD). "The Effects of Blame Attributions and Justice Violations on Revenge and Forgiveness in the Workplace" (Murray O. Bradfield, Karl Aquino, Doug Stanwyck) describes a test of a mediated model, postulating that thoughts of revenge mediated independent variables of blame attributions and justice violations on criterion variables of revenge and forgiveness behavior. Findings indicate support for direct and mediated effects. "The Values of HRD Practitioners" (Jackson Rains) reports that analysis of data from the Study of Values showed only gender groups had significantly different values and that the Values Scale revealed statistically significant differences between values for gender groups and among members of one of three organizations. "Secondary Vocational Business Students' Ethical Decision Making" (Thomas Li-Ping Tang, Emily James Weatherford) presents a study that examined 136 high school students' ethical decisions of 25 hypothetical scenarios that could be grouped into 4 categories: opportunity within and pressure from the organization and opportunity and pressure from other sources. "The Meaning of Work: A Literature Review" (Neal Chalofsky, Patricia Daly, Janet Silverthorne, Lauren Turner) reports that an analysis of the literature shows a dichotomy between (1) values, jobs, and satisfaction and (2) meaning, spirituality, and work.
