The previous Southeast Survey of CEOs on Business Ethics was a major project completed in 2005 in the Southeastern United States.

The study was presented to the public at a series of Executive Breakfast Forums in Atlanta, Greenville, Birmingham, Memphis, Jacksonville, Charlotte, Columbia and Charlotte. The Birmingham forum was broadcast on Alabama@Work, a two-part program on Alabama Public Television, in December 2005. Click below to watch this program:

This survey, examining critical issues in ethics management and the state of ethics in business, was especially timely and relevant in light of recent corporate scandals and reform measures. It included CEOs of the largest organizations, by revenue, in six Southeastern states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee – the region primarily served by the Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility.

The Southeast Survey of CEOs on Business Ethics was made possible through the generous support of the project’s corporate sponsors: UPS and Lee Hecht Harrison. We were especially proud that the year’s academic partner was Clemson University’s Robert J. Rutland Center for Ethics.
