Hoosier Companies Among ‘World’s Most Ethical’
Four Indiana-based companies are being recognized on the New York-based Ethisphere Institute’s annual "World’s Most Ethical Companies" list. The companies were chosen based on criteria, including the companies’ ethics and compliance programs and culture of ethics.
Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY) is included on the list for the first time since its inception in 2007. Columbus-based Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI), Merrillville-based NiSource Inc. (NYSE: NI) and Old National Bancorp in Evansville (Nasdaq: ONB) all returned to the list.
"The designation as one of the World’s Most Ethical companies supports our stakeholder commitments and is influenced by each employee action and the systems and processes we have in place," said NiSource Chief Executive Officer Joseph Hamrock. "Our commitment to doing the right thing crosses every aspect of our day-to-day business interactions – ensuring we serve our customers with fairness, honesty, integrity and trust day in and day out."
Cummins has made the list every year since 2008. This is the sixth consecutive year on the list for NiSource and Old National.
