New ethics barometer shows trust deficit between workers, business

Johannesburg - A new study on the behavioural aspects of local business paints a grim picture of strained relations between workers and bosses in corporate South Africa.

It surveyed employees in the banking, insurance, financial services, property, retail, mining, and leisure sectors. “We hope it can contribute to a shifting of ethics from the periphery to the centre of organisational decision making… which has a way of moving away from a grudge compliance,” he said. The report said 45% of workers complained of at least one type of misconduct in the past two years, with the most common types of misconduct being workplace bullying, discrimination by race and gender, theft of company assets, misuse of company property and bending of rules for business to meet targets.
