For the ninth consecutive year, JLL (NYSE: JLL) has been named a 2016 “World’s Most Ethical Company® by The Ethisphere Institute, the global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.
“We are very proud of being part of a small and elite group of global companies that have remained on Ethisphere’s list for so many years,” said Colin Dyer, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Integrity has been a fundamental value and essential part of our culture throughout our long history, and it continues to serve the best interests of our clients, shareholders, employees and other stakeholders,” Dyer added.
The World’s Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient(TM) (EQ) framework developed over years of research to provide a means to assess an organization’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics. The EQ framework and methodology is determined, vetted and refined by the expert advice and insights gleaned from Ethisphere’s network of thought leaders and from the World’s Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.
Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10 percent).
