Workday is thrilled to share that we’ve been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies (WME) by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, for the second year running. Workday is one of 136 recipients of this honor, which assesses a company’s culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives to support a strong value chain.
In addition, to coincide with this recognition, we’re excited to introduce our new chief integrity and compliance officer, Chris Fedrow, who will share with us how Workday thinks about integrity, how her role focuses on championing this core value, and the importance of setting the right expectations at the top.
Before we dive into the details, how does it feel to see Workday on this list once again, and why is it so important?
Integrity is a core value at Workday, and as our organization continues to grow and the world around us continues to change, it’s vital that integrity remains central to the way we support our employees, our customers, and the wider community. We’re honored by this recognition, and to be on the list again is inspiring and a testament to the great work of our employees across the globe.
In addition, being one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies speaks directly to the success of our business. Don’t just take my word for it: Ethisphere’s 2022 Ethics Index, which includes recipients of this year’s WME companies designation, outperformed a similar index of companies by over 24% over the past five years. And we’ve seen examples where customers have wanted to work with us because we share this recognition. All of this only motivates me, and hopefully all of our employees, to work even harder to stay on the list!
