Ford on Ethisphere Institute’s List of 2016 World’s Most Ethical Companies

Ford Motor Company has once again been featured in the 2016 World’s Most Ethical Company® list by Ethisphere Institute, a distinction that comes as ethics in business are affecting customers and their buying decisions now more than ever. It is the only automaker to be included in this list.

The Etisphere Institute is a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. It honors companies that have top ratings across five categories: ethics and compliance, corporate citizenship and responsibilities, culture of ethics, governance and leadership and reputation. Speaking about the recognition, executive chairman of the Ford Motor Company, Bill Ford said,” This honor celebrates our employees who are committed to doing the right things and making the right choices. Ethics and corporate citizenship are the foundation of what drives us to make people’s lives better.”

Ford understands that trust is the cornerstone of everything it does, and their commitment to being an active part of a global community helps explain why they are the only automaker Ethisphere has recognized every year since 2010,” said Timothy Erblich, Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer. “Being honored for the seventh time is no small achievement. Congratulations to everyone at Ford for being recognized.

It is imperative to understand the value of a strong corporate citizenship and how it ties to success and building the company’s reputation, something which Ford has recognized and worked towards for decades now. According to the results of the 2016 Harris Poll Reputation Quotient, more than half the respondents said they learn more about a company before deciding to do business with them. More than one-third decided not to do business with a company if they perceive the business has a negative reputation. 

Ford was recognized by the institute in many more categories, namely:
  • Forbes 2015 America’s Best Employers (133)
  • Human Rights Campaign 2015 Corp. Equality Index – 100 percent
  • Fortune Change the World List
  • Fortune World’s Most Admired
  • LinkedIn 100 Most InDemand Employers 
  • Forbes Best Companies for Work-Life Balance
