This factor considers the immediacy and magnitude of the impact on those involved, and helps determine the ethical significance of a particular situation or decision.

This means that employees and leaders must set a positive example by consistently making ethical decisions and behaving in an ethical manner. By doing so, they create a culture of integrity and trust within the organization, which encourages others to also act ethically. This step is crucial because it lays the foundation for all other ethical practices and initiatives, such as implementing a reporting system and being committed to the company ethics program.
