This week brought a big surprise. I should be paying more attention. I received an email asking me if I wanted a plaque in honor of my placement on Ethisphere‘s 100 Most Influential in Business Ethics list. The email surprised me because I did not know I was on the list which was issued at the end of 2014 for the 2014 winners. I could not have been more delighted. I sincerely admire what Ethisphere does and follow the companies that make the list closely. If you do not know, here is a good description of them from the web site:
The Ethisphere® Institute is the global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices that fuel corporate character, marketplace trust and business success.
Pretty cool to be on a list that also ranks Pope Francis, Tim Cook and Elon Musk. Best of all, my rank (#77) was a few notches above Angelina Jolie (#79). It is not every day that I can make such a comparison.
