TE Connectivity, a manufacturer of connectors and sensors, was recently named as one of the 2021 World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere.
Ethisphere named 135 companies in 22 countries and 47 industries in 2021. TE has been recognized for seven years in a row and is one of only two 2021 honorees in the electronics and components industry.
“TE’s ethics and compliance culture is designed to empower its employees and partners to do business in a way that does not compromise the company’s core values of integrity, accountability, teamwork and innovation,” TE said in a press release. “TE offers a multitude of resources to ensure employees understand the company’s values, including Ethical Connections, a tool that enables managers to facilitate discussions about ethical dilemmas with their teams. TE managers have conducted nearly 18,000 of these conversations since it was created in 2013.”
The World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives to support a strong value chain. This year, the question set was expanded to gauge how applicants are adapting and responding to the global health pandemic, environmental, social, and governance factors, safety, equity, and inclusion, and social justice.
