LI employers named to ‘world’s most ethical companies’
Several Long Island employers have been named to Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies list for 2022.
Northwell Health, Canon U.S.A and Henry Schein were among this year’s list, which featured 135 other honorees from 22 countries and 45 industries. Ethisphere, which revealed the list Tuesday, aims to define and advance the standards of ethical business practices.
Ethisphere has recognized these Long Island employers in previous years.
This is the seventh time that Northwell was included in the list. The healthcare system has been recognized for its culture, practices and inclusive and compassionate care especially since the onset of the pandemic.
“Our health care heroes have been repeatedly tested by COVID-19 and answered the call with amazing grace, compassion and determination. I believe that can-do culture is reflected in Ethisphere’s inclusion of Northwell Health among its annual World’s Most Ethical Companies list,” Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell, said in a statement. “I’m proud of how the entire organization kept on soldiering on in the face of adversity and remained true to its mission of ethical and inclusive care for all New Yorkers.”
Canon U.S.A. has been recognized every year since 2018.
“Our goal is to develop solutions and provide the highest quality of support in an ethical manner,” N. Scott Millar, senior vice president of Human Resources of Canon Solutions America, said in a statement. “To have Ethisphere once again recognize our business practices is a testament to our continuing commitment to corporate social responsibility and serving our customers with integrity.”
And for Henry Schein, it’s the 11th consecutive year for the recognition.
“Since Henry Schein’s founding 90 years ago, we have been committed to the belief that ‘doing good’ for the professions and communities we serve allows the Company to ‘do well,’” StanleyBergman, chairman of the board and CEO of Henry Schein, said in a statement. “This recognition is a testament to our longstanding commitment to serving the needs of society while holding ourselves to the highest ethical standards.
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. Based on Ethisphere’s proprietary Ethics Quotient, the process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify the leading practices of organizations across industries and around the globe.
