The Institute of Business Ethics employee survey has revealed that 67% of those who witnessed misconduct at work raised concerns, but 33% decided not to speak up. While 69% were aware of written standards of ethical business conduct and 64% knew there was a means of reporting misconduct confidentially, reasons for not reporting misconduct included employees believing their jobs would be placed in jeopardy or that corrective action would not be taken or that it was none of their business. The survey also reveals that 48% of employees say that results are rewarded without considering how they have been achieved and 33% agree that their manager rewards good results even if they are achieved through ethically questionable practices.
