SPRING // 2020


This issue of Ethisphere Magazine goes out at a difficult moment for our world, right at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak as much of the workforce, including the majority of our readers, have been advised to work from home as a social distancing measure to reduce to coronavirus’s spread. While several pieces of content from this issue feature insights into how companies can and should be responding to the current moment, including this moving action plan from Ethisphere CEO Tim Erblich, we feel it is appropriate that much of it remains focused on the honorees of this year’s edition of the World’s Most Ethical Companies®, who we expect will be modelling thoughtful organizational responses during the outbreak and as the economy recovers.

This issue also contains information about how Ethisphere as an organization is continuing to do what we do best: bring together the top minds in the world of ethical business to help one another to lead. Although we have postponed this year’s Global Ethics Summit, other programming will be continuing on this website and through the BELA Member Hub to keep conversations alive and help our audience adapt to our changed world of work.
