The Institute of Business Ethics’s (IBE) Ethics at Work survey – first introduced in 2005 – is the only one of its kind covering Europe. It provides real insight into employees’ views on ethics across all sectors and job roles by asking how they experience ethical dilemmas in their day-to-day working lives. The 2018 European survey report brings together findings from eight European countries and highlights the positive impact on employees of having a comprehensive ethics programme.

The survey finds that employees who work in what the IBE identifies as a ‘supportive environment for ethics’ tend to have a higher opinion of honesty in their organisation; are less likely to have been aware of misconduct at work; and are more likely to have spoken up about misconduct if they have. At the same time, there has been a rise in numbers of respondents who have felt some form of pressure to compromise their organisation’s ethical standards, and it is reported that 30% of managers have become more tolerant of ‘petty fiddling’.

The Institute of Business Ethics promotes high standards of business behaviour based on ethical behaviour. For over 30 years, IBE has advised organisations on how to strengthen their ethical culture by sharing knowledge and good practice. In this evening seminar, Daniel Johnson, Head of Project Services at ISBE, will provide an overview of the 2018 survey followed by questions and discussion.
