Ford Motor Company on the Value of Going Through the Ethics Quotient Process

Raphael Richmond, Global Director of Corporate Compliance at Ford Motor Company Explains: 

  • The Scorecard shows us where we come out against the companies that are really committed to caring and focusing in compliance and ethics.
  • Participating each year gives a cadence to the process of working with other departments to annually take stock of our whole program.
  • The process of answering the Survey gives us lots of ideas about improvements that we can make.
  • If I want executive support for initiatives, this process and our scores provide extra legitimacy.
  • Bringing other functions into this process allows us to expand the impact of our program.

Why the Ethics Quotient is a Powerful Measurement Tool

  • Collaborate Cross-Functionally Across Your Organization. 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.

  • The Value Is in the Process Itself. 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.

  • 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.
