State of Business Ethics in the U.S. – Infographic

Did you know that 34% of employees think their managers are unethical?

More Americans are finding work right now, which is good news. The bad news? We may not be behaving ourselves while we’re there. Reports of workplace-ethics lapses are dropping slightly as backlash against those who speak out is rising – and there are more ominous signs on the horizon.

We invite you to view this infographic that highlights the current state of business ethics in the U.S. and offers tips for business owners to clean up their organization. Here are a few facts:

  • 1 in 2: Employees that have seen misconduct in the office
  • 1 in 5: Whistleblowers say they have faced some form of retaliation, up from just 12% five years ago (see the top five forms of retaliation in the graphic)
  • 42%: Employees who say their company’s ethics cultures are weak

Biking To Work – Who Needs A Car?

Did you know that Americans collectively make 4 billion trips by bike each year, up from 1.7 billion in 2001?

While driving is still most Americans’ primary means of getting to and from work every day, cycling is gaining ground as an option in more and more cities across the United States, and it’s not hard to see why. Whether it is because it has gotten safer, is cheaper, is a form of exercise, or because it is good for the environment, the trend is growing.

We invite you to view this infographic from Bolt Insurance which illustrates this.

Here are a few facts from the graphic:

  • 4 in 10: Ride bikes for work, pleasure or exercise
  • 21%: Cycling fatalities declined between 1998 and 2008
  • Portland: No. 1 state with nearly 6% of people biking to work
  • 76%: How most people get to work – they drive alone
