The Ethisphere Institute has recognised Rockwell Automation, the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information, as a 2016 World’s Most Ethical Company®. This is the eighth time that Ethisphere®, a global leader in advancing the standards of ethical-business practices, has named Rockwell Automation on the distinguished list, which recognises companies which align principle with action, work tirelessly to make trust part of their corporate DNA, and in doing so, shape future industry standards by introducing tomorrow’s best practices today.
“Companies rely on Ethisphere to continually raise and measure the standards of corporate behaviour. Those, like Rockwell Automation, that demonstrate leadership in areas like citizenship, integrity and transparency create more value for their investors, communities, customers and employees; thus, solidifying a sustainable business advantage,” explained Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Timothy Erblich.
“The importance of ethics and the transparency of integrity – both ingrained in our culture – continues to increase for current and potential employees,” said Keith D. Nosbusch, Rockwell Automation Chairman and CEO. “Employees continually look for companies that value ethics and are consistently doing the right things, the right way, every day. Our ethical culture is a differentiator, a competitive advantage and makes Rockwell Automation a great place to do your best work.”
This year marks the tenth anniversary of Ethisphere and the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation.
Additionally, the company also announced that its 2015 Corporate Responsibility Report is now available online and in print. Besides detailing the company’s approach to ethical-business practices, the report provides highlights and updates on the company’s environmental performance, employee safety and culture, and community-relations initiatives.
