How ethically problematic business practices become normalized via digital media

How ethically problematic business practices become normalized via digital media

This talk focuses on how ethically problematic business practices become normalized via digital media. We examine online self-reports, in which users discuss how to best apply mini-bribes in Las Vegas hotels.

This talk will shed light on some of the dark sides of digital media.

In particular, it will focus on how ethically problematic business practices become normalized, by making them visible via digital media.

The talk will present findings from an ongoing research study of self-reports on the social media platform Frontdesktip.com, where users discuss how to best apply a small-scale bribery practice called “The $20 sandwich trick”.

With this trick, tourists try to receive complimentary room upgrades in Las Vegas hotels (but meanwhile these mini-bribes have also been applied in other contexts, for example at car rentals or airlines).

The talk will spell out theoretical and practical implications on the interplay between digital media, transparency, and business ethics.

Format-wise, the talk will feature a mix of presentation, videos, and interactive discussions.
