For the 17th year, Ethisphere is celebrating companies that have demonstrated a commitment to business integrity with its World’s Most Ethical Companies list.

The 2023 list features 135 organizations, but ManpowerGroup Inc. was the only staffing company to make the list, marking its 14th time as an honoree. 

To determine which companies to include on the list, Ethisphere uses its Ethics Quotient (EQ) score, which evaluates applicants relative to their peers (companies of similar structure, size, and operating environment) in five categories — ethics and compliance program, culture of ethics, corporate citizenship and responsibility, governance, and leadership and reputation. Though any company can participate in the evaluation process, it’s most suitable for companies with more than $250 million in revenue.
