Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

virtues such as honesty are important in that they attract customers. The value of honesty in business has obvious and subtle implications. Asking who benefits from business honesty can explain why virtue is also important. Examining the negative effects of dishonest business practices provides insight into the importance of honesty. In fact, it is as helpful as looking at the benefits of business honesty. Doing what is ethical because it is the right thing to do is as essential as practicing ethical behavior for the positive consequences.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
