Xerox Named to ‘World’s Most Ethical Companies’ for 8th Consecutive Year

Ethisphere Institute recognizes our commitment to ethical leadership.

By Denise Devlin, manager, Business Ethics and Compliance Office for Xerox.

We place it on our website, we include it in our business proposals. Our CEO often emphasizes ethics, and all our employees are required to participate in company-wide ethics training every year.

“There are no shortcuts to doing business in the right way.”

So it is with great pride that we note that Xerox was again named one of the Ethisphere Institute’s World’s Most Ethical Companies for 2014. Xerox is one of only 23 companies that have made the list all eight years. This recognition is based on our commitment to ethical leadership, compliance practices, and corporate social responsibility. In our highly competitive environment, we are constantly challenged to do more, do it better and do it with less.  Financial results are important and the pressure to improve these results will always be with us.  Equally important are the means we use to achieve our results.  We must conduct ourselves and our business dealings with the highest degree of ethical conduct.  This means not only complying with laws, regulations and company policies, but also doing so in a way that reflects our core values.  There are no shortcuts to doing business in the right way.

According to Ethisphere’s chief executive officer, Timothy Erblich, the entire community of World’s Most Ethical Companies believe that customers, employees, investors and regulators place a high premium on trust, and that ethics and good governance are key in earning it.

Each year, the World’s Most Ethical Company application process becomes increasingly competitive.  This year 144 companies were selected, representing 23 countries and 37 industries.

The World’s Most Ethical Company designation recognizes companies that truly go beyond making statements about doing business ethically and translate those words into action. World’s Most Ethical Company honorees not only promote ethical business standards and practices internally, they embed the theory of “conscious capitalism” into everything they do, every employee they hire, and every partner they bring into their network to ensure they deliver long-term value to key stakeholders including customers, suppliers, regulators, and investors. By leading their industries in compliance, corporate governance and social responsibility, the World’s Most Ethical Companies effectively align ethical business practices with performance and shape future industry ethical business standards.

    I don’t know about your ethics, but I do know that I have been unable to get a response from your company regarding a large unit that we require a maintenance renewal on yearly and for the life of me after (2) months cannot reach ANYONE to help me, including automated email locations. I have called COMDOC for some help since you are their parent company and they say they can’t reach anyone either….why would anyone buy a Xerox even if it is a great machine…service is EVERYTHING…

    I pride myself on my expediting and research…but XEROX…you win this one.
