And a new survey released by online recruiting site TrueCareers also found that nearly half (41%) say their current employer may become involved in a corporate scandal, and 10% (or presumed job searchers) say their company is already involved in such a scandal.
The report also found that just 8% state that
executives, as a group, are trustworthy
While gauging employee trust, the survey also took measure of employee investing patterns:
- 63% have at least some portion of savings invested in their employer
- but 49% have not rethought their investments in light of recent corporate scandals
The survey was conducted on the website of TrueCareers, a subsidiary of the SallieMae Foundation in September 2002 and had 724 respondents.
