Expect more ethical, financial scrutiny from job candidates

by on

Expect to open your books and answer more questions about your financial practices. Reason: Sixty-nine percent of executive recruits say they'll look more closely at the financial statements of potential employers, and 62 percent plan to scrutinize an employer's culture and value system before accepting a job, according to a new poll by online career center ExecuNet.

This new breed is already skeptical: 56 percent of managers believe workplace ethics have fallen in the past five years, and 39 percent say they left an employer because of its unethical business practices. Note: Although three-quarters of those who left jobs didn't expose the unethical behavior, a third say they'd respond differently today.
