Examination of the application of virtue ethics to business has only recently started to grapple with the measurement of virtue frameworks in a practical context. This paper furthers this agenda by measuring the impact of virtue at the level of the organisation and examining the extent to which Organisational Virtue (OV) impacts on Moral Attentiveness (MA) and the Perceived Role of Ethics and Social Responsibility in creating organisational effectiveness (PRESOR). It is argued that people who operate in more virtuous organisational contexts will be expected to be more attentive to ethical issues and in turn perceive a greater role for ethics and social responsibility in business. \ud \ud Analysis of results based on a sample of 137 HR professionals shows that where people report that their organisation provides meaningful work they are more likely to display reflective moral attentiveness and the belief that ethics and social responsibility are compatible with business objectives, suggesting that organisations who are interested in promoting an ethical culture should focus on their work structures and practices. More generally OV is shown to have a more complex relationship with PRESOR than hypothesised pointing toward a more nuanced view of organisational virtue. The paper examines the implications of the results for organisations and research.
