For the fifth  consecutive year, Symantec has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute!

It continues to be an honor for our company to make it onto this prestigious list. I can share with you that the requirements for inclusion seem to have become more complex and demanding over the years. This might speak to the ever-growing and developing ethics and compliance field itself, to the ongoing rise of corporate responsibility as a value and reputation driver, or just to the increasing popularity of this particular list. One thing I do know is that Symantec is greatly honored by this recognition and we will continue to strive to operate with integrity. It’s not just about being recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies; even though that’s a really great thing. What drives Symantec is our ongoing commitment to maintaining trust with our employees, customer, shareholders and the community at large. 

Cecily Joseph is Symantec's Senior Director of Corporate Responsibility and Compliance.

Ms. Joseph:

Ethisphere mentions a five step process:

  1. Submit nomination OR Ethisphere contacts companies who have been nominated, along with past years’ winners
  2. Nominated companies submit the Ethics Quotient Survey
  3. Ethisphere conducts data analysis, research and verification
  4. Winners notified
  5. Winners announced

Can you share the name of the Ethisphere contact you are dealing with? On behalf of the 53 Symantec employees that were recently laid-off in Beaverton and on the behalf of the Global LinkedIn Symantec Alumnis, I have a few questions for the Ethisphere Research team as regards to the methodology of the survey.
