Reputation risk is inextricably linked to business ethics. Unethical business practices can damage employee relations or lead to customer distrust; thus increasing the potential of insider crimes, loss of business and litigation. This questionnaire is designed to help risk management professionals determine how well their companies are addressing risks in this area and to bring awareness to ethics programs.
This document covers several aspects of an organization's business practices including values/mission statements, reporting/advice channels, business ethics training and the outcomes of these processes. It also provides guidelines on how to measure the performance of business ethics processes.
This questionnaire may help you to evaluate or identify businesses or functions that require additional training; or to understand the general level of knowledge, commitment and adherence to ethics practices.
