Will You Blow The Whistle?

Social activist Anna Hazare had gone on a fast unto death against corruption but how any times have you reported a wrong-doing of your colleague to your manager? Were you perhaps in the know of things but were reluctant to report an unethical act of a colleague to your senior? Most important, do you, to say the least, even agree that corruption exists at your workplace?

While the majority (62%) of respondents agree that corruption exists at their workplace, another one fourth have a neutral opinion on the issue, according to the HT Shine-AbsolutData survey. While 44% of the total respondents acknowledge their colleagues to be corrupt, another 32% respondents are not too sure if their colleagues are corrupt.

The online survey, 'Corruption and unethical behaviour' carried out by IndiaSpeaks - the online panel of AbsolutData Research & Analytics, consisted of a 10-minute web-based interview of 1051 people, aged 25 to 40, across the metros (41%), Tier I cities (17%) and other places.

According to the survey report greed is considered to be the root cause of unethical behaviour among people, followed by insecurity and poverty.

As far as reaction to a colleague's unethical behaviour is concerned, 44% of the respondents say that reporting a colleague to their immediate managers is the best way to tackle corruption at the workplace. The maximum numbers of people (48%) willing to take this step are from the metros.

While 36% intend to reprimand and threaten their colleagues, 18% prefer to not get involved in such matters. However, significantly higher numbers belonging to Section C (middle) and Section D (lower) socio-economic groups do not want to get involved.

Forty-nine per cent of the total respondents are not in favour of sacking their colleagues found to be involved in some wrongdoing, though they agree that some sort of punishment should be awarded. More than 30% of the respondents say that the wrongdoers should be dismissed from service. About one-fifth of the participants say that the guilty should be let off with a warning. Men, along with young and middle aged respondents seem to be in favour of giving them a chance after reprimanding them.

Commenting on the findings, Sudeshna Datta, EVP ­ HR and co-founder, AbsolutData Research & Analytics, emphasises the need for an organisational culture in which employees can come forward without any fear or repercussion.

"It is unfortunate to see that a large percentage of employees feel that corruption and unethical behaviour exist in their organisation, and that their colleagues are involved in it. These feelings may be a consequence of improper communication leading to a negative perception which mayor may not reflect the true picture. The HR and internal communication teams playa vital role in addressing issues around perception. They need to ensure that a positive work environment remains in the company and every employee feels free to approach and express their concerns to them, without fearing any action or a negative bias," says Sudeshna Datta.
