According to the 2011 National Business Ethics Survey, a report published by the Ethics Resource Center ( the ethical culture of the American workplace is in transition. The survey, the seventh since 1994, was conducted for the purpose of understanding how employees at all levels view ethics and compliance at work.

Its overall results send mixed signals to employers. While positive indicators are included in the findings, they are clouded by “ominous warning signs of a potentially significant ethics decline ahead.”

On the positive side, the data revealed historically low levels of misconduct in the American workplace and near record high levels of employees reporting misconduct that they observed. On the negative side, however, there was a sharp rise in retaliation against employee whistleblowers, an increase in the percentage of employees who perceived pressure to compromise standards in order to do their jobs, and near record levels of companies with weak ethical cultures.

The economy was identified as one of the factors influencing the shift in trends.

In its projection of anticipated economic growth, the report predicted the following: “History teaches a bittersweet lesson that goes with the good omens: when economic recovery takes place, some companies lose their focus on ethics, some employees will return to risky behavior, and misconduct is likely to rise.
