Ethics is especially important in today’s business environment, given the pressure that both employees and employers are feeling as a result of the current economic conditions.
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
i-Sight Software has published an infographic illustrating some of the important findings from the 2011 National Business Ethics Survey conducted by the Ethics Resource Center (ERC). The survey uncovered both good and bad news about the state of ethics in the workplace.
“Ethics is especially important in today’s business environment, given the pressure that both employees and employers are feeling as a result of the current economic conditions,” says Joe Gerard, VP of Sales and Marketing at i-Sight.
With new powerful anti-corruption legislation introduced last year, business ethics have been in the spotlight even more and companies are looking for ways to improve the culture of ethics in their organizations. This survey provides a snapshot of the current ethics climate, which gives companies an idea of where they need to concentrate their efforts to improve the situation.
“It’s such a valuable survey that we wanted to bring attention to the data in a creative way,” says Gerard.
The National Business Ethics Survey is published by the ERC every two years and takes a look at business ethics from an employee perspective. Over the years, the findings from the survey have been used to identify trends and the factors that impact business ethics, offering suggestions and steps companies can take to reinforce their commitment to ethics. In 2011, the survey looked at:
- The economy’s influence on ethical behavior
- Levels of observed and reported workplace misconduct
- Ethics challenges facing active social networkers
- Retaliation against whistleblowers
- Ethics culture within an organization
- Employee confidence in management
