Rockwell Automation among world’s most ethical companies

Posted on 9 May 2014 by The Manufacturer

Rockwell Automation has been named as one of the world’s most ethical companies for the sixth time in its history by the Ethisphere Institute.

The institute, set up to honour organisations maintaining high standards on ethical leadership and corporate behaviour, released its latest results which included manufacturers, retailers and service providers.

Other manufacturers making the list included aerospace company Elbit Systems and the Ford Motor Company, and comes after Rockwell recently released its Global Voices Survey, where employees ranked its culture of ethics, responsibility and accountability.

It also ranked highly in a study conducted by the Corporate Executive Board, with Rockwell Automation leaders ranking the importance of ethics and compliance higher than nearly all of the more than 175 other companies surveyed.

Company CEO Keith D. Nosbusch said the latest recognition shows the company’s commitment to ethical business practice.

“Rockwell Automation’s culture of integrity is reflected in the choices we make, and I am proud of our employees who consistently do the right things, the right way, every day,” said Keith D. Nosbusch, Rockwell Automation chairman and CEO.

“Our commitment to integrity, reflected in how we engage our employees, partners and customers, is the cornerstone of delivering sustained business value.”
