Ethics Survey Results: Your Responses

By Scott Jenkins |

Responses from 2015 CE ethics survey range from hopeful to cynical, and both similarities and differences emerge when compared to earlier surveys In October 2015, Chemical Engineering conducted a survey among chemical process industries (CPI) professionals about workplace ethics and ethical culture ( Chem. Eng., October 2015, pp. 50–55). The survey asked a series of general questions about ethics culture in the CPI workplace and presented a number of hypothetical situations in chemical manufacturing in which ethics would play a role. This followup article reports results from that survey. In some cases, the questions and ethics scenarios repeated those found in earlier ethics surveys (see Chem. Eng., April 2007, pp. 50–53 and Chem. Eng., October 2007, pp. 60–67). Thank you to those who provided responses and input for the survey.   General questions results In response to the question “In the past 6–10 years, have people become more ethical, less ethical or remained the same?,” 46% of the almost 700 respondents said people have become less ethical than in the past, while 15% said “more ethical” (38.4% said people have remained the same). When the same question was asked in 2007, a smaller portion (42.8%) of respondents…
