PASADENA, CA (February 12, 2018) – Parsons is pleased to announce that it has been named by the Ethisphere Institute—a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices—as one of the 2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies in the Engineering & Design Services category. This designation recognizes the corporation—for the ninth consecutive year—for its commitment to leading with integrity and prioritizing ethical business practices.
“We are honored to once again be named by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies,” said Chuck Harrington, Parsons’ Chairman and CEO. “Parsons couldn’t have earned this incredible honor for 9 consecutive years without the tireless efforts of our 14,000 employees who make ethical decisions in their work each day.”
In 2018, 135 honorees were recognized, spanning 23 countries and 57 industries. The twelfth class of honorees had record levels of involvement with their stakeholders and their communities around the world. Measuring and improving culture, leading authentically, and committing to transparency, diversity, and inclusion were all priorities for honorees.
“While the discourse around the world changed profoundly in 2017, a stronger voice emerged. Global corporations operating with a common rule of law are now society’s strongest force to improve the human condition. This year we saw companies increasingly finding their voice. The World’s Most Ethical Companies in particular continued to show exemplary leadership,” explained Ethisphere’s CEO, Timothy Erblich. “I congratulate everyone at Parsons for being recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.
Parsons communicates its commitment to integrity to all levels of the company through its Code of Conduct and through various training methods, including live training, videos, easily accessed online documentation, as well as periodic ethics “challenges” or quizzes to keep ethics in the forefront of its daily activities.
“Integrity is one of our six core values at Parsons,” said Mike Kolloway, Parsons General Counsel. “We’re grateful to once again be honored among other great companies, both within our industry and across the spectrum.”
