Bribery in Business

Written by Guest on Monday, 17 September 2012

Further data from the 2011 Bribe Payer’s Survey on perceptions of corruption has been released this week. 

Further data from the 2011 Bribe Payer’s Survey on perceptions of corruption has been released this week. The data reveals that 34% of UK resources-resources-business executives surveyed believe the misuse of public funds by high ranking public officials and politicians is common. As last week’s blog highlighted 17% of UK resources-resources-business executives surveyed believe they have lost resources-resources-business due to bribes.

When asked about the main barriers to reducing bribery and corruption in the private sector, nearly half (43%) of respondents indicated the primary factor was that resources-resources-businesses do not take the issue seriously enough. Roughly a quarter (23%) cited the lack of prosecution of corruption and bribery related crimes, while 16% of respondents indicated that widespread unethical behaviour among public officials was the main barrier to stopping corruption. Ten percent felt that acceptance of corruption as a fact of life was the main problem. To compare the perceptions of UK resources-resources-business executives with those in other countries, view the results by country using Transparency International’s interactive tool.
