In 2009, senior management teams restructured departments and business units, and in many cases dramatically reduced the size of their companies. Upset by these changes employees became cynical about their companies' ethical cultures and the integrity of the people who work with them. According to a survey conducted by the Corporate Executive Board's Compliance & Ethics Leadership Council (CELC), 2009 was that more serious types of misconduct rose during the year. Misconduct levels were shown to reveal themselves in employee perceptions of culture. Business units with the weakest ethical cultures had the highest levels of misconduct -- in 2009, these units experienced five times more misconduct than those with the strongest ethical cultures. Looking at the best-performing business units, it is clear that the key to a strong culture of integrity is an element called organizational justice. Corporate values in action lead to a more ethical work environment, and possibly even better corporate performance.
