Why: Recent events including the 2008 subprime lending crisis and the growth of corporate social responsibility reporting emphasize the need for an ethical corporate culture. Compelling new evidence shows that improper acts in an organization are significantly reduced when a culture of integrity is set in place. Without one, there is no assurance that employees will naturally do the right thing.
