Over the last 20 years, The Conference Board has undertaken four studies examining corporate ethics programs and practices. The most recent of these documents the efforts of 225 companies to design, implement and monitor their compliance and risk assessment programs for effectiveness. Conducted in 2005, the study examines current practices and provides a point of comparison to what is known about ethics programs from earlier surveys conducted in 1986-1987, and in 1991 and 1998, after Federal Sentencing Guidelines became effective.
