EthicsIndia is a Legasis Group company. Legasis Services was incorporated by professional lawyers in 2006 with a focus on 'Fusing Lawyering and Information Technology.' Legasis has, since its inception, become a pioneer and a trendsetter in the Legal Support Services domain. Ethics Research and Consulting Pvt. Ltd. was incorporated in June 2016. Our goal is to partner in India’s growth by facilitating and ingraining Ethics in the culture of our organisations.
We want organisations to reduce their skepticism that Ethics is a cost and would like to foster the concept that Ethics pays. EthicsIndia aims to create an ecosystem in which all affected parties will be encouraged and guided to implement and execute a culture of Ethics through Ethical Business Practices. Leadership Ethics displayed through ‘tone at the top’ is the key to ensure an organisation culture of integrity and respect. There is an increasing pressure on the Board of Directors to exhibit ethical leadership and protect the organisation, people, reputation as well as bottom line.
The Board of Directors training in the field of Ethics is a course determined to be a solution to that. The aim of EthicsIndia is to take forward the findings of the research study conducted at the doctoral thesis level by our founder, Dr. Anita Shantaram. It is through research and consulting that Indian business corporates may consider incorporating the findings and knowledge about Ethics and bring them into Business Practices.
She conducts Ethics Audits for organizations, is the external ICC member for POSH for multiple leading corporates and is on the Academic Advisory Board of several institutes.
Dr. Anita Shantaram has published 7 papers in the area of Business Ethics and is currently working on various authorships in the space of Business Ethical Practices. Check out her blog on current affairs viewed through the filter of Business Ethics on LinkedIn.

The thesis ‘Ethical Business Practices and Corporate Financial Performance-an Empirical Analysis’ has given way to the setting up of EthicsIndia. The findings from the thesis have led to the creation of workshops to help organizations. The ongoing India-specific research by EthicsIndia will help provide meaningful data to organizations and empower them to build a successful and sound organization.
