More About Why the Ethics Quotient is a Powerful Measurement Tool

  • Collaboration yields success. Completing the Ethics Quotient requires you to work closely with your colleagues in ethics, compliance, audit, risk management, HR, and more. The relationships you forge through this process alone are matched only by the data and insights gleaned after the fact. You’ll finally have a true gap analysis that allows you to focus your team’s efforts and prioritize your program building efforts. That’s likely more helpful than another offsite meeting to discuss programming in a vacuum.

  • The value is in the process itself. Take a look at a redacted Analytical Scorecard to more completely understand what you’ll receive when you participate. [Request sample here]

  • You benchmark against leading companies, not just anyone. Companies that we honor as World’s Most Ethical Companies are not just anyone – they lead their industries and are rigorously vetted. So you’ll be compared to the best of the best, and not to companies who are merely taking a few minutes to complete a simple online survey.
