Improve ethics in the workplace, issues related to research, and more.

Create a Survey Today

Understanding the ethical attitudes of the people in your workplace (and the people you serve) makes it easier to make good decisions.

If you’re doing business globally, is it OK to accept a gift from a customer? As a doctor, is it OK to talk about a young adult’s case with their parents? As a teacher, when must you contact the authorities on a student’s behalf?

Whatever attitudes you’re trying to understand, online surveys can help. Start with a template constructed by our experts or create your own custom survey. SurveyMonkey can help you collect answers and analyse results too. It’s easy and you can get started for free.

Sample Survey Templates

(Please note that some survey templates are currently only available in English.)

With over 100 survey templates covering business, education, human resources, government and more, SurveyMonkey can help you create a survey on ethical attitudes quickly and easily. Professional survey methodologists write all of our templates, so you can use them as-is. You can also customise templates to suit your needs or create your own using the certified questions available in our Question Bank.

Start with our survey templates for:

  • Human Resources. Use the Team Performance, Manager Effectiveness, Management Performance and other Society of Human Resources Management’s Relationship Management templates to ask employees for their opinions about management, teams or work situations. People leaving the company? Why? Use our Exit Interview and Leave of Absence templates to find out a bit more. Follow up with questions that explore the extent to which ethical attitudes (or lack thereof) may be affecting an employee’s or their colleagues’ experiences and job satisfaction – or perhaps prompting them to go elsewhere.
  • Education and Training. Explore a wide range of academic and education surveys as the foundation for your surveys about ethical attitudes in learning environments. Gain insights into the attitudes that contribute to challenging situations, using templates such as the School Climate survey or Stop Bullying survey. Provide ethics training and then use our Seminar Evaluation template to ask for attendees’ feedback on its effectiveness.
  • Non-Profits. Combine our non-profit survey templates with questions about ethical attitudes on specific topics or situations to get your donors or volunteers thinking – and taking action. Incorporate questions about ethical attitudes into our Volunteer Recruitment template to find the right fit of personnel and project.
  • – Demographics. Incorporate questions about ethical attitudes with demographic surveys to gain insights into possible causal or correlating factors. Our U.S. Demographics, snapshot template asks respondents about gender, age, education, employment, household income and race. Additionally, the 12-question U.S. Demographics, full template asks about geographic location, housing, marital status, ethnicity, business or farm ownership and personal income.
  • 4 Quick Tips to Improve Survey Response Rates

    We provide guides on how to write good survey questions, as well as create and conduct surveys. Check them out! And in the meantime, try these tips to encourage respondents to complete your surveys.

  • 1. Make responses anonymous. Many people hesitate to offer opinions or feedback that is sensitive in nature. Consider making responses anonymous – and make sure you let your respondents know that’s the case.
  • 2. Explain the purpose of your survey. Explain the purpose of your survey in a brief introduction. Tell your respondents how you’ll use the information. For example: “We want to know more about the people who will be working with our clients so we can match the right volunteer with the right project.”
  • 3. Make your survey as accessible as possible. Reach as many people as possible for insights into common ethical situations. All of our standard survey designs are accessible (by U.S. Section 508 standards) and you can deliver them online in a variety of ways.
  • 4. Pre-test your survey. Pre-test your survey with a few members of your intended audience. You may uncover inconsistencies or unexpected question interpretations.

    Little incentives like small discount or an entry into a drawing can help ensure respondents complete your survey.

    3. Buy a targeted audience

    With SurveyMonkey Audience, you can purchase access to an audience who meets specific demographic criteria for your survey. It's a great way to get targeted responses from a specific group.
