Survey For Employees
You occasionally take-home small supply items from the office like pencils and staples.
You would never pad your company expense account.
You surf the Net for non-work-related matters during work time. Everyone does it.
Calling in “sick” is okay as long as it’s not super-busy at work.
When your chatty coworker gossips about everyone and anyone in the office, you simply say nothing.
You make an error and another employee gets blamed. No one would be able to trace the error back to you, but you immediately come forward to take responsibility.
A company supplier gives you a holiday gift of your favorite gourmet chocolates valued at $50. You accept the gift and enjoy the chocolates.
A coworker’s paycheck in an unsealed envelope is placed on your desk by mistake. No one is around. You resist the temptation to peak and deliver the paycheck to its rightful recipient.
You go to the restroom and find a $50-dollar bill. Finders keepers, losers weepers.
The boss is away, and your coworker uses the time to make personal phone calls and play computer games at her workstation. Taking the opposite stance, you “give an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.”
