Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, Sony Corporation is a multinational conglomerate whose diversified businesses include game & network services, home entertainment, music, movies, semiconductors, and other businesses. It has about 117,300 employees worldwide, 13% of whom work in the U.S., and over $78.7 billion in revenue.
In 2018, Sony implemented Ethisphere’s Ethical Culture Survey to selected businesses in its Global Entertainment and Americas region. The goals were to better understand employee perceptions of its ethical culture and its compliance program, and to ensure that it was meeting U.S. Department of Justice expectations that corporations conduct a thorough assessment of ethical culture. Before this survey, the compliance function had included questions regarding culture in the annual, general engagement survey.
