London, 7 March 2016Arthur J. Gallagher awarded ethical distinction for fifth consecutive year
Arthur J. Gallagher has been recognised for the fifth consecutive year as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies — the only insurance broker to be awarded this distinction.
The award was made today to our parent company Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. by the Ethisphere Institute, an independent centre of research promoting best practice in corporate ethics and governance now in its 10th year.
The World’s Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon Ethisphere’s Ethics Quotient (EQ) framework — a quantitative means of evaluating a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardised way.
Tom Gallagher, chairman of our International Brokerage business, pictured, said: “Our corporate culture rests on the trust and integrity that our people engender in their relationships with customers, colleagues and industry partners alike. We work hard to ensure that principles are always aligned with actions, and make sure that service excellence and social responsibility go hand in hand. So to be externally recognised as a leader in ethical business practices — and for the fifth year in a row — is testament to the fantastic efforts of all our people day in, day out. Well done everyone.”
