Trust and ethics in the workplace have been battered by the recession

According to Deloitte's fourth annual Ethics & Workplace Survey, one-third of employed Americans plan to look for a new job when the economy gets better.  Within this group of respondents, 48 per cent cite loss of trust in their employer and 46 per cent say lack of transparent communication from their company's leadership are the primary reasons for pursuing new employment at the end of the recession. Additionally, a large majority (65 per cent) of Fortune 1000 executives who are concerned employees will be job hunting in the coming months believe trust will be a factor in a potential increase in voluntary turnover.
