The chief executive of the Ethics and Compliance Initiative (ECI), Patricia Harned, on rising unethical behaviour, reporting and retaliation Board Agenda

    • Management

In this podcast episode of Board Agenda we focus on the issue of ethics in the workplace and discuss the findings of a new global survey which finds that pressure on employees to compromise standards has increased significantly during the pandemic, in the US and in 10 other countries around the world, including the UK. 
The research is from the Ethics and Compliance Initiative, and we discuss the findings with  chief executive Patricia Harned. 

Many firms have been vocal about well-being of their employees, but the evidence from this study shows that workplace conditions, during the pandemic, including flexible working, has increased pressure, and compromised standards among employees, particularly middle management. The risks for boards and leadership teams are evident.
