The imperative of digital ethics is getting widespread attention, with recent regulatory action, growing concerns about technology’s ethical harms, and executives’ desire to attract more customers, employees and investors by demonstrating a commitment to responsible business practices.
Careful consideration of digital ethics is helping organizations achieve benefits like higher customer satisfaction, stronger employee loyalty and faster rates of tech adoption. More importantly, it’s also helping ensure that successful tech projects don’t come at the expense of certain individuals, social institutions or the environment.
To find out more about how organizations are addressing these issues, the outcomes they’re experiencing and their plans for the future, we fielded a Global Digital Ethics Survey with 800 business and technology leaders. This report explores results from that survey, with key takeaways we can all use to improve our ethical practices.
