The reason why corporations are considered moral agents is the fact that all corporations are supposed to have ethics and values with which they are to operate. In most institutions, work ethics are there to determine how customers should be treated and how an employee is to conduct him or herself at work. But invariably, as workers, especially social workers of corporations adhere to the basic working and customer ethics, their overall attitude, character and morality become transformed. In such situations, the ethics they put up at work becomes reflected in their everyday life.

To this effect "Ethics are considered to be of utmost importance because they assist in promoting significant moral values."
