Annual recognition highlights organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to business integrity through robust ethics, compliance, and governance programs

Assurant (NYSE:AIZ), a leading global business services company that supports, protects, and connects major consumer purchases, proudly announced that it has received the 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies recognition by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. In 2024, 136 honorees were recognized spanning 20 countries and 44 industries.

“Throughout our business, our clients are some of the most valuable brands in the world,” said Assurant President and CEO Keith Demmings. “Operating ethically is foundational to protecting their brands as well as ours. Being named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies® by Ethisphere is a testament to the thousands of Assurant employees who work according to our values every day.”

“Operating ethically at scale requires clear policies, compelling training, and robust procedures,” said Chief Legal Officer Jay Rosenblum. “I’m proud of the work our Legal and Compliance teams have done to put these measures in place, as well as the decisions our employees across the company make every day to do the right thing on behalf of Assurant and our clients.”

“It’s always inspiring to recognize the World’s Most Ethical Companies®. Through the rigorous review process, we see the dedication of these organizations to continually improving their ethics, compliance, and governance practices to the benefit of all stakeholders,” said Erica Salmon Byrne, Ethisphere’s Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Chair. “Companies that elevate best-in-class cultures of ethics and integrity set a standard for corporate citizenship for their peers and competitors to follow. Congratulations to Assurant for achieving this honor and demonstrating that strong ethics is good business.”

Ethics & Performance: The Ethics Premium

The listed 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies® Honorees outperformed a comparable index of global companies, the Solactiv GBS Global Markets All Cap USD Index TR, by 12.3 percentage points from January 2019 to January 2024.

Methodology & Scoring

According to Ethisphere, the World's Most Ethical Companies® assessment is grounded in its proprietary Ethics Quotient®, an extensive questionnaire that requires companies to provide over 240 different proof points on their culture of ethics; environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices; ethics and compliance program; diversity, equity, & inclusion; and initiatives that support a strong value chain. That data undergoes further qualitative analysis by Ethisphere’s panel of experts who spend thousands of hours vetting and evaluating each year's group of applicants. This process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify truly best-in-class ethics and compliance practices from organizations across industries and from around the world.
