Careers Slideshow: Is Trust Dead in your Organization?

Workplace trust appears to be yet another casualty of this period of ongoing global economic turmoil, according to a new survey from Deloitte LLP. To put it bluntly: U.S. workers don't feel that CIOs and other top corporate executives/managers provide enough transparency. Given this, many employees plan to leave their jobs once the economy rebounds. Despair not: "Deloitte Ethics and Workplace Survey." contains some positive news. Employees do feel their managers care about work-life balance. Workers also feel that technology is helping managers become more transparent than in previous years. The survey, launched in 2007, measures how workplace trends and issues affect employee behavior and attitudes. The study was conducted via telephone interviews within the U.S. by Harris Interactive, and more than 750 adults took part. Additional interviews were conducted online involving 300 Fortune 1000 executives at the VP level or higher.
