Romanian employees, less likely to lie, steal, pay bribes for higher pay
Only 15% of Romanian employees said that they would act immorally to advance their career or get a higher salary, according to EY’s EMEIA Fraud Survey, conducted in 41 countries.
Moreover, 22% of Romanian employees said that they resigned after they had noticed an immoral behavior in their company.
Only 3% of Romanian respondents said that they would send false information to the management team to advance their career or receive a salary increase, according to the EMEIA Fraud Survey.
Some 16% of the respondents said that they would be willing to pay a bribe if the survival of the company depended on it. The average is below the Eastern European (19%), but higher than in developed markets (11%).
More than half of the Romanian employees believe that monitoring electronic mail, phones and conversations on instant messenger and social networks is a violation of their privacy.
The main reason why Romanian employees do not report incidents of fraud, bribery or corruption at work is fear for their own safety, according to EMEIA Fraud Survey. About 30% of them said that they were afraid they would not advance in their career if they reported the company's immoral incidents.
