ABSTRACT
The article refers to the 2005 National Business Ethics Survey from the Ethics Resource Center and a trend toward building ethical corporate cultures in the United States. Previously, the focus had been on building compliance infrastructures. The survey attributes the shift to ineffective ethics programs that have not reduced the levels of misconduct since 1994. A Culture Risk Assessment model and seven levels in an ethical organization are mentioned.
