I confess: Now vote on my lapse

By Steve Outing

I really like the concept behind the new website/blog Ethics Crisis: People can anonymously confess a business ethical lapse they’ve personally made, then site visitors vote on how bad it is, from 1-5. Yes, reading the site does make you feel kind of depressed about human nature (and probably drive you to watch your employees more closely!). On the other hand, it’s entertaining as hell. (Pun intended… Some of those confessors are surely headed there. 😉 )

Ethics Crisis is published by SRF Global Translations, but it looks like PR Internet expert B.L. Ochman is behind it.

    Yes, I am indeed behind and in front on Ethics Crisis, and so happy that you like the concept.

    We’re rather amazed at the confessions and more so about the ratings by the community. Seems like you’d have to really do something dreadful before the majority would rate it as never acceptable.

    Ethics is the hot topic in global business and, judging by the enthusiastic reception Ethics Crisis has gotten, we seem to have struck a nerve.

    The concept of the blog is to distinguish SRF Global from the hundreds of multilanguage translation companies online, and to get user generated content. And, since multilanguage translation of corporate ethics codes and compliance materials is SRF’s specialty, this made sense. Time will tell whether it’ll also make money.:>)
