DALLAS, Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The second annual Bustin & Co. survey to determine the "Best and Worst in Accountability" for 2015 is now open for voting.

To vote, go to and vote for one of five companies, organizations or individuals who held themselves accountable to making tough, smart decisions in 2015. Votes also can be cast for one of the five companies, organizations or individuals who could not be counted on to step up when it mattered most.

Last year, voters from around the world selected CVS Caremark CEO Larry Merlo as the "most accountable" person for his decision announcing that CVS Caremark would stop selling tobacco products. Voters also selected former U.S. government secretary Eric Shinseki the "least accountable" person for his shoddy management of the Department of Veterans Affairs which resulted in confirmed deaths of at least 40 veterans during 2014.

For this year's survey, voters will automatically be entered in a drawing for one of 10 signed copies of Greg Bustin's newest book, Accountability: The Key to Driving a High-Performance Culture (McGraw-Hill).  The book, named one of the best business books of 2014 by Soundview, is based on five years of research marked by interviews and surveys with more than 5,000 executives around the world – from such admired companies as Marriott, Container Store, Ernst & Young, Herman Miller, Nucor, Southwest Airlines and Sony – to understand how high-performing corporations approach accountability.

Bustin's views on leadership have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Forbes, Inc., Investor's Business Daily, Leader to Leader, the Dallas Morning News and other major publications.
