- What types of unethical behaviors have you experienced or witnessed at work?
- Do you feel comfortable speaking up of a potential misconduct?
- Do leaders and employees play by the same rules?

Business ethics is not an issue – before it is. The debate regarding right and wrong conduct, of what is ethical, of how companies, leaders and employees are expected to behave is a hot topic. Current media enables a transparency that quickly reveal if the actual behaviour and operations are not in line with what is expected.

About the Nordic Business Ethics survey
Anna Romberg and Niina Ratsula, the initiators of Nordic Business Ethics Network launched an open weblink based survey called ethics@work Nordics in early December 2018, with a primary intention to increase the discussion around business ethics in the Nordics. They wanted to provide some insight into how employees perceive the ethics at their current and/or past workplace. The pilot study received over 200 responses in Finland and Sweden and soon after its launch it became very clear that this topic really had momentum.
Based on the feedback we received for the survey, they decided to take the survey one step further and partnered with Kantar TNS to collect an additional 1500 responses via Kantar TNS’s certified survey methodology to cover all-together three Nordic countries – Finland, Sweden and Norway. The new survey name is Nordic Business Ethics Survey.
