To Apologize, Or Not to Apologize? That Is a Question - How Should an Organization Respond to Executive Employees’ Private Life Misconduct?

Recently we have seen an upsurge of pirvate life misconduct by executive employees i.e. sexual harrasement, animal abuse, etc. in non-workplace setting. This research is the first to evaluate the relative effectiveness of two major crisi response strategies- ‘apology (acceptance of responsibility)’ and ‘apology (denial of responsibility) in such events.
