This survey is designed to assess what the so-called subtle or grey-area issues are, how they’re impacting the bottom line, and what training and cultural initiatives are proving to be successful in dealing with them.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 1, 2008
ELI® has asked more than 3,500 human resources, compliance, and organizational executives to participate in a survey designed to uncover trends in workplace behavioral patterns, the types of behaviors causing the most serious business problems, and what organizations are doing to align employee behavior with corporate values to minimize business risk.
“We’ve been hearing that while they’re still a problem, the blatant issues – those that are addressed by traditional sexual harassment training, compliance programs, and business ethics training – often aren’t the ones organizations are struggling with on a day-to-day basis,” says ELI president Stephen M. Paskoff, Esq. “This survey is designed to assess what the so-called subtle or grey-area issues are, how they’re impacting the bottom line, and what training and cultural initiatives are proving to be successful in dealing with them.”
In addition to focusing on the prevalence of specific behavioral problems – from illegal harassment to bullying in the workplace and other unprofessional conduct – the survey asks participants to share their perspectives on the skills managers need to effectively prevent and correct inappropriate behavior. Respondents are then asked questions about the organization’s values statement, why it was developed, and what efforts are underway to integrate the values into the daily business culture.
The results of the survey will be compiled into a comprehensive research report that will be made available this fall through ELI and other sources. Upon completion of the survey, respondents will receive access to download a free chapter from Paskoff’s book, “Teaching Big Shots to Behave and Other Human Resource Challenges.” They will also be notified when the final report is published.
Participation in ELI’s "Workplace Behavior, Business Culture, and Values Survey" is open to the public. All respondents’ names, organizations, and other identifying information will be kept confidential.
