Article on website INSEAD regarding our research.
This first international survey was initiated by Dilemma-Assist and was aimed at analysing the professional role and personal dilemmas that executive assistants are faced with. What is their exact role vis-a-vis their superior and towards the rest of the organisation? Which business and integrity dilemmas do they encounter and what is the impact of corporate culture on their role and dilemmas?
The results of this survey will stimulate and intensify the efforts of Dilemma-Assist and its mission to further motivate and educate executive assistants to play their important role in governance and integrity.

The results of our international research were published on Friday March 16, 2018. Kees Cools received the first copy in Amsterdam as a reward for this expert and professional contribution to this unique research in 25 countries.
In collaboration with Dutch professors corporate governance and leadership Kees Cools and Erik van de Loo, we conducted this international research among 1,400 members of International Management Assistant (IMA) on the effect of misconduct of directors and employees in organizations on integrity in their role as executive assistant.
With concrete recommendations in the report, we hope to provide executive assistants and management with tools to improve governance within organizations and make moral dilemmas more open for discussions at all levels in companies.
