I am forwarding an article by Scott Moritz of Protiviti (click the link below), discussing ethical culture surveys, which are in vogue now, but might not be soon when they are no longer the center of attention. In his short article Mr. Moritz does capture the importance of a well-drafted survey to gather information and to help demonstrate employer interest in the topic. I suggest that the board also sponsor the survey – in my view, as a general matter boards should be more visible on important topics, such as the entity’s culture. “Tone at the top” and “visibility,” you know?
Mr. Moritz’ article doesn’t go into the detail of preparing a well-drafted survey – I would like to see an open discussion, and specific examples, about well-drafted ethical culture surveys so that everyone can get onboard, now and continuing in the future.
Here is the link to Mr. Moritz’s article: https://blog.protiviti.com/2017/12/18/measuring-ethical-culture-tapping-open-secrets/
