    in an era

    promoting ethics in the workplace

    When leaders make decisions that show profits winning out over ethics, employees not only lose faith in their leaders but begin to assume that all the glorious talk about ethics is just that- talk. And in an era when many corporate executives can earn staggering sums of money in pay and bonuses that are based on company profits and stock prices, skeptical employees might just assume that the unethical behavior is done is pursuit of personal gain...

    Why is this "era" used here? Normally "era" means a long term. Does it mean the modern era?
