Study: Abusive Behavior Is Top Ethical Concern for HR

Abusive or intimidating behavior tops the list of egregious ethical misconduct identified by HR professionals, according to a new study from the Society of Human Resource Management and the Ethics Resource Center. Despite ethical concerns, less than a quarter of HR professionals said that their organizations have a comprehensive ethics and compliance program in place. HR professionals also felt that top management would be less likely to be held accountable if caught violating their organization's ethics standards than non-management employees.

These fundamental problems indicate continued demand for Organizational Ombuds.
