In this second of a two part series on business ethics, the CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS business panel come out strongly for more protection for whistleblowers. By ratios ranging from 6:1 to 10:1, panelists believe that whistleblowers have too little rather than too much protection. Panelists see a special need for whistleblower protection in the case of publicly traded corporations and governments.

Seven years ago, panelists thought that whistleblowers in governments needed the most protection; today, it is publicly traded corporations that attract the attention of panelists.

These are the key findings from this past week's Internet survey of CEOs and business leaders on the COMPAS panel. The weekly business survey is undertaken for Canadian Business magazine.
