Abstract: This chapter considers positive organizational scholarship’s empirical research on the phenomenon of organizational virtue, which refers to the virtuous characteristics embodied in organizations as collectives. The nature of organizational virtue is discussed, relative to psychological and virtue ethics perspectives. Research findings are summarized, including a consideration of the mechanisms of buffering and amplifying that are presumed to underlie the observed relationships among organizational virtue and various outcomes. The chapter concludes with a reflection on future directions for the study of organizational virtue.
