What does ethics at work mean to employees?

Publication Launch - Ethics at Work:  2018 Survey of Employees, France

This report take a deeper look at data from the IBE’s 2018 European Ethics at Work survey  and focuses on the responses from French employees.


Employees’ views are a key indicator of the ethical temperature in every organisation, and many organisations use employee surveys to try and understand their culture. But what might the story be at a country level? How do we measure the ethical temperature of the business environment in France, compared to other countries in Europe?

The Institute of Business Ethics has asked French employees about their views of ethics at work since 2012.

  • How does their experience of ethics in their workplaces differ from that of the average European employee?
  • What are French employees’ perception of honesty, misconduct, management and speaking up?
  • What pressures are they under to compromise ethical standards and are formal ethics programmes effective in embedding ethical values into organisational culture and influencing behaviour?
