This survey report explores ethical misconduct in today's workplace from the perspective of HR professionals and addresses the following six key themes: organizational ethics standards and practices; roles of human resource professionals in organizational ethics; ethical behavior of top management, supervisors and nonmanagement employees; pressures to compromise organization’s ethics standards; observed misconduct on the job; and reporting of ethical misconduct. This report presents an analysis of the results from the current study and examines differences by HR professionals’ industry, staff size and employment sector. Where applicable, this report also discusses the results from the 1997 and 2003 SHRM/ERC surveys on this topic and draws comparisons with ERC’s 2007 National Workplace Ethics Surveys (NWES) of employees.
