NBES is the most exacting longitudinal research effort examining organizational ethics from the employee perspective. The long-term nature of the study is important because it provides context for national trends. The NBES and its supplemental reports have provided business leaders a snapshot of trends in workplace ethics and an identification of the drivers that improve ethical workforce behavior. With every report, ERC researchers identify the strategies that business leaders can adopt to strengthen ethical cultures of their businesses.
