Recognition honors companies demonstrating business integrity through best-in-class ethics, compliance, and governance practices
Cambia Health Solutions has been recognized by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the 2023 World’s Most Ethical Companies.
For the sixth consecutive year, Cambia has received this distinction and is one of only four honorees in the health insurance category. In 2023, 135 honorees were recognized spanning 19 countries and 46 industries.
“At Cambia, ethics is a value that guides our strategic decisions and daily interactions with health plan members, customers and our local communities,” said Jared Short, Cambia’s president and chief executive officer. “We see every touchpoint as a chance to make a difference for those we serve. We are honored to be recognized again for our ethics-driven culture, strengthened by the commitment of our employees to make health care easier and lives better.”
In 2022, Cambia created a new internal ethics award to recognize an employee or team who has exemplified ethical leadership through action. As part of this recognition program, Cambia assembled an Ethics Advisory Board to evaluate nominations as well as share feedback, advance ideas and serve as ethics program intermediaries. The creation of this new award and advisory board build upon Cambia’s strong ethical culture and continue to enable its employees to act with integrity.
“Today, consumers hold businesses accountable to a much higher standard,” said Ethisphere CEO, Erica Salmon Byrne. “We continue to be inspired by the World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees, including Cambia, and their dedication to making real impact for their stakeholders. This commitment to ethical behavior and business integrity raises the bar across industries and supports better long-term performance for all."
