TI was recently recognized by two organizations for its commitment to corporate integrity and its reputation as a good corporate citizen.
Most Trustworthy Public Company
For the second year in a row, TI was named a Most Trustworthy Public Company for 2011 by Trust Across America™, an organization dedicated to unraveling the complexities of trustworthy business behavior.
The Trust Across America study independently analyzed nearly 2,500 public companies and more than 200 data points with respect to five key corporate indicators of trustworthy business behavior: financial stability and strength, accounting conservativeness, corporate integrity, transparency, and sustainability.
The framework, initially conceived and developed in 2008 with a group of academics, corporate leaders and consultants, is "the most holistic and comprehensive trust 'health' checkup for public companies," according to its founders.
"We are delighted to be recognized for our ongoing efforts to be accountable for our social, environmental and economic impact," said Trisha Cunningham, TI Chief Citizenship Officer. "TI's commitment to responsible business practices is foundational, and we believe it is integral to our long-term success."
Ten Best Corporate Citizens
CR Magazine recently released their inaugural "10 Best Corporate Citizens" ranking by sector, placing TI number five in the Information Technology sector.
This sector ranking is determined based on the same data set used for the annual "100 Best Corporate Citizens" ranking. After identifying industry sectors with reasonably high representation among the Russell 1000, CR narrows the list of industries down to 10 and applies the same review process to the companies on those sector lists as they do for the "100 Best Corporate Citizens List" to offer a more "apples-to-apples" recognition and also introduce top-performing companies by sector that may not have made it into the 100 Best list. TI ranked #26 on the 100 Best list in 2011.
