Not only is it unethical, it's STUPID! How short-sighted do you have to be? If you don't do things to improve the problems, you'll just get crummy results or nil participation year after year!

Ugh. How can anyone ever gather reliable data with that kind of stuff going on? I would be furious if I found out that was happening on a survey from which I was supposed to glean meaningful information! Oh yes, employee coaching and intimidation really helps to solve so many problems....
