First of a kind study

The Global Business Ethics Survey™ (GBES™) is a rigorous, multi-country inquiry into worker conduct and workplace integrity, providing insight into workplace ethics in both public and private sector organizations. GBES is the global expansion of the National Business Ethics Survey® (NBES®), the most comprehensive survey of employees in US workplaces. Just as NBES illuminated our understanding of workplace ethics in the United States, GBES fills a void in our knowledge of workplaces around the world.

Actionable Data

GBES  provides business organizations with important benchmarks, including:

  • Critical insights about workplace integrity in a global context
  • Independent benchmarks to gauge ethics risks among their supply chains and subcontractors or in target markets
  • 13 country-specific risk profiles of Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States
