National Business Ethics Survey of Fortune 500 Employees
January 1, 2012
The 2012 "National Business Ethics Survey of Fortune 500 Employees" is an investigation into the state of ethics at America's most powerful companies. Compiled from a survey of over two thousand employees at corporations identified by Fortune magazine as being the U.S.-based companies with the highest revenue in the prior year, this report explores whether and in what ways the workplace ethics experience of these particular employees differs from that of employees in the broader spectrum of American businesses. Topics covered in the study include ethics risks and pressures faced by powerful companies, likeliness of misconduct reporting, effectiveness of formal ethics programs, and recommendations for promoting workplace integrity.
