This paper we will discuss the role of public perception in society and the relationship between values and ethics. Successful business people understand the importance of public support and the damage that negative public perception can cause regardless of actually being found guilty of improprieties.

Professional Morales and Public Opinion
The definition of values: A principle, standard, or quality regarded as worthwhile or desirable. Definition of Morality: The quality of being in accord with standards of good or right conduct. Definition of: Ethics: The rules or standard of conduct governing the members of a profession. Definition of perception: The act, process, or faculty of perceiving.

Morality is one’s personal feeling of what that think is either bad or good. Ethics is what you think is rights or wrong.. Perception is what one person thinks of another either it be true or false.
