“Participating in the Ethics Quotient and World’s Most Ethical Company recognition program offers a real advantage to organizations at every level of sophistication, maturity and size,” explained Ethisphere’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tia Smallwood. “There is a clear advantage to confidentially assessing yourself against the very best, in this case those who are honored, and in participating in a process which in its ninth year has proven to be invaluable to organizations striving to communicate ethics, trust and performance both internally and externally.”
In 2015 all participating companies will receive enhanced feedback, i.e. a high-level analysis with their scores compared to World’s Most Ethical Company honorees in key questions as well as the overall Ethics Quotient and five categories.
