EY put out a piece in September 2020 entitled “If corruption never stops, how can public trust be gained?”.  The piece states, among other things:

“The actions and words of management shape the company and direct the actions of its staff.  Weak governance may allow situations where certain employees enjoy immunity from stringent policies that are normally enforced because they are high-performers in the business, well-connected or part of the senior management team.  Organizations demonstrating a culture of integrity apply the same rules equally to all employees irrespective of their position or success, and this is known as organizational justice.”
