Our Evaluation is Grounded on These
8 Pillars of Corporate Culture

Awareness of Program & Resources

How familiar are employees with the resources available to them through the compliance and ethics function to help them make decisions and raise concern?

Perceptions of the Function

What do employees think of those resources? Do they feel like the policies give good guidance and the training is effective?

Observing & Reporting Misconduct

Are employees comfortable raising concerns? Why – or why not? And when they have questions, where do they go with them?


Are employees experiencing pressure to compromise company values or policies to achieve business goals? How strong is that pressure – and where might it be coming from?

Organizational Justice

When things go wrong, do employees believe the company takes that seriously? Do they see all employees being treated the same? Or are there some who get preferential treatment?

Manager Perceptions

What do employees think of their supervisor? Are they comfortable going to her with questions? Do they see her as a good ethical role model?

Perceptions of Leadership

What do employees think of senior leadership? Do they believe the leadership team is committed to doing business the right way?

Perceptions of Peers and Environment

How do employees see their peers? Do they believe their coworkers are committed to the company’s values? Do they see an environment where people are supported in raising questions or expressing concerns?
