Cambia Health Solutions named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute

Recognition honors those who operate with purpose and incorporate integrity into their ecosystems

February 12, 2018

Cambia Health Solutions has been recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

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.

Cambia Health Solutions is honored to be one of only three honorees in the non-profit health insurance industry, underscoring the company’s commitment to leading with integrity and prioritizing ethical business practices. 

“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 Cambia Health Solutions for being recognized as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies."

"We are humbled by this honor and strive to earn the trust of the people we serve every day," said Mark Ganz, president and CEO of Cambia Health Solutions. "We have learned over the years that creating an ethical environment is the result of far more than compliance programs and codes of conduct. We are relentless about articulating, modeling and holding each other accountable to our values. We are a human organization, and therefore will make mistakes. The key is to be honest with ourselves, to take swift action and learn from those experiences."

Methodology & Scoring

The World's Most Ethical Companies assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient® (EQ) framework, which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized manner. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35 percent), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20 percent), culture of ethics (20 percent), governance (15 percent) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10 percent). All companies that participate in the assessment process receive their scores, providing them with valuable insights into how they stack up against leading organizations.
