Abstract

Ethics training is crucial to government and corporate compliance and values-oriented initiatives. Results from a national survey of cities indicate that about two-thirds of cities use some form of ethics training. It is mandatory in one-third of cities for all employees and voluntary in 43.5 percent. The mean duration of ethics training activities is approximately half a day. Ethics training is found to have a positive impact on the organizational culture.
