The annual World’s Most Ethical Companies recognition from Ethisphere honors companies from around the world that demonstrate a commitment to business integrity, making a difference in the communities they touch, and elevating employees and other stakeholders, especially during a year as challenging as 2020.
“Our values-based culture empowers employees to do the right thing to support our customers, our business partners, and our community,” said Walter White, president and CEO, Allianz Life. “Our focus is helping our customers secure their future, and this recognition is validation of our strong ethical foundation that enables us to fulfill this mission.”
“While addressing the tough challenges of 2020, we saw companies lead – above all other institutions – on earning the trust of stakeholders through resilience and a commitment to ethics and integrity,” said Timothy Erblich, CEO, Ethisphere. “The World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees continue to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the highest values and positively impacting the communities they serve. Congratulations to Allianz Life for earning the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation.”
The World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity and initiatives to support a strong value chain. This year, the question set expanded to gauge how companies are adapting and responding to the global health pandemic, as well as inclusion and social justice practices.
