Ethical Companies

I have not looked at the scoring methodology, but thought I'd share this. I was surprised to see a few on here like ebay. The article lists the world's most ethical companies.

I happen to work for one MegaCorp on the list. I do think we have a good ethical culture, although certainly we're not perfect. I do my little piece, but I'm merely one cog in a very big machine. I'm proud of where I work, how we conduct business, how we treat our customers, and so on.

Wow, my old employer is on there, too. I never say them screw any customers, but it was every man (and woman) for themselves in the management ranks.

Yes, I have achieved work / life balance.

I wonder how much the companies had to pay to be listed.

"Most ethical" on this list seems to be about the same distinction as "most senior" among Navy ensigns...

The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Of course, people won't agree on what is the "most ethical" any more than they'd all agree on the criteria for "socially responsible investing"...
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
