Other active streams of research include incorporating ethics into human resource assessment theory and practice; investigating how executive leaders achieve ethical objectives when they select employees; discovering the effects of moral foundations and threat sensitivity on implicit leadership preferences; and finding the linkages between customer incivility and various aspects of a service encounter.
