EthicScan quoted on IT business ethics

David Nitkin of EthicScan Canada provides the lead-in quote for a recent ITBusiness.ca article, Canadian IT companies need to bone up on business ethics according to analysts:

"By developing regulations that are in synch with the values of its workers and customers, a company can boost its bottom line attract and retain more talent and nurture a favourable image among its clientele, says David Nitkin, president of EthicScan Canada Limited, a full-service ethics consultancy firm based in Toronto.

But, Nitkin said, the records of many Canadian IT firms remain spotty at best when considering issues such anti-harassment policies, good governance, conduct towards customers and competition and environmental policies.

"Many IT companies in Canada do not even have a whistle blower protection program," he said."
