New Report: Character in the Professions: How Virtue Informs Practice

The Jubilee Centre has published Character in the Professions: How Virtue Informs Practice. The aim of the research presented in this report was to use data from previous Jubilee Centre research into virtues in the professions to explore: how professionals utilise different types of reasoning to justify their actions; whether professionals at different career stages relied upon specific types of moral reasoning; and, the extent to which professionals gave prominence to distinct dimensions of character. Key findings show that study included the revelations that 69% of professionals indicated that they would deviate from instruction or regulations when a potentially more ethical action was available, that 72% of professionals would not attempt to gain an unethical benefit if instructed to do so, and that established professionals reported greater virtue-based reasoning compared to pre-service professionals. The full report, is available here.
