In the episode, I visit with Doug Allen, Managing Director at Ethisphere. We discuss the application process for Ethisphere’s 2019 World’s Most Ethical company designation. We consider the process for application, why a company should go through the process and the benefits even if your organization does not receive the designation. More highlights include:

  1. What is the Ethics Quotient? How is it developed and used?
  2. How are companies scored? Is there a difference between industries or geographies?
  3. If a company is under FCPA or other investigation, can they still apply?
  4. How does Ethisphere verify company responses?
  5. Does Ethisphere provide feedback?
  6. Do past winners receive a preference?
  7. How does the WME process align with Ethisphere values/missions and other services?
  8. When and where will WME 2019 companies be honored?
