About 73% of staff at big Hungarian companies believe corruption is widespread in the country, well over the 35% average in developed countries, a global survey by consultancy EY has shown. Only 13% of those surveyed in Hungary were satisfied with ethical standards at their companies, and a little less than half of the companies had an anti-bribery/anti-corruption code of conduct. About 20% said compliance with regulation was bad for business. In Hungary, the survey was based on 100 interviews with staff at companies employing more than 5,000 people. About 10% of those interviewed were in top management.
