Who are the World’s Most Ethical Companies?

Which companies really care?Which companies really care? This is the question that Ethisphere answers with its annual list, recently released, of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.

The Worlds Most Ethical Companies (WME) designation is awarded to companies that don’t just talk the talk about business ethics – they walk the walk. Not only are their internal operations and policies recognized as adhering to top ethical standards, but they are leaders in their industries when it comes to shaping the future of business.

Who are They?

This year’s list is made up of 145 companies from all over the world, including 7 members of the VolunteerMatch network! Here are the VolunteerMatch clients who were recognized as some of the World’s Most Ethical Companies:

  • Gap Inc.
  • Old National Bank
  • Adobe
  • PepsiCo
  • L’Oréal
  • Safeway
  • Target

We’re so proud of our clients for the work they do in employee engagement and corporate social responsibility. The VolunteerMatch team is super excited at the recognition the companies above have received.

Why Do We Care So Much?

What’s so special about ethical companies, anyway? Companies that display a high adherence to ethical standards are great examples of the gold standard in CSR – the level we should all be striving towards. I’m talking about the true integration of social good values into the DNA of the business. Not just within the increasingly important areas of employee volunteering and cause marketing, but in the way everyone in the company does business and thinks about their roles in the world.

So a huge kudos to our 7 network partners who were honored as the World’s Most Ethical Companies – we know firsthand how much you deserve it!
