NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that it has been recognized as a 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies® for the third year in a row by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.
CA Technologies is one of only 3 winners in the Software and Services category, underscoring the company’s commitment to leading with integrity and prioritizing ethical business practices.
“Success in today’s rapidly evolving economy is contingent on so much more than business acumen. How an organization is run, the diversity of the team, and the driving mission directly impact both the bottom line and sustained success,” states Mike Gregoire, chief executive officer at CA Technologies. “CA is adamant in maintaining the highest ethical standards in all we do – both internally and externally. The recognition for three years running by the Ethisphere Institute is the best validation of our efforts and our commitment. Our ethical principles inform everything we do and it is deeply satisfying for that work to be recognized.”
Twenty-eighteen is the twelfth year that Ethisphere has honored those companies who recognize their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day.
“While the discourse around the world changed profoundly in 2017, a stronger voice emerged. Global corporations operating with a common rule of law are now society’s strongest force to improve the human condition. This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice. The World’s Most Ethical Companies in particular continued to show exemplary leadership,” explained Ethisphere’s CEO, Timothy Erblich. "I congratulate everyone at CA Technologies for being recognized as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies."
Ethics & Performance
Once again, the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies have proven that operating with integrity leads to greater financial performance. Research has found that, when indexed, listed World’s Most Ethical Companies outperformed the U.S. Large Cap Index over five years by 10.72 percent and over three years by 4.88 percent. Ethisphere refers to this as the Ethics Premium.
Methodology & Scoring
The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient® (EQ) framework, which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized manner. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.
Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10 percent). All companies that participate in the assessment process receive their scores, providing them with valuable insights into how they stack up against leading organizations.
