Friday, 29 February 2008
Life after graduation
New research has revealed that one in three UK workers do not deem their employers to be fair.
Graduates may wish to note that the latest IBE Briefing on ethical conduct within business found that some 40 per cent of British employees do not consider their bosses fair in terms of communication, appraisals, work/life balance and being clear about pay.
Additionally, some 30 per cent of respondents stated that they did not feel their employers were fair when it came to paying suppliers on time, choosing suppliers fairly, or making sure that suppliers adopt good business practice.
In terms of encouraging community help form employees, dealing with complaints from community groups and buying from local companies, 55 per cent did not rate their employer as fair.
At 72 per cent, the state education sector was deemed to be the fairest, while professional firms came in last with 61 per cent.
The IBE was established in 1986 to encourage high standards of business behaviour based on ethical values.
