They're not all bad
The evil corporation is a well known archetype these days, but I am pleased to announce that there are apparently some good ones.

'World's Most Ethical Companies' Revealed
By David Mielach | LiveScience.com – 3 hrs ago

Turns out successful businesses aren't concerned only with their bottom line. At least that is the case for companies like Aflac, American Express, General Electric, Patagonia and Starbucks. Those companies and 18 others have made the list of the World's Most Ethical Companies for the sixth straight year.

In all, 145 companies from around the world appear on this year's list.
Ethisphere Institute, which compiled the list, says it based its rankings on the following factors: ethics and compliance programs; reputation, leadership and innovation; governance; corporate citizenship and responsibility; and culture of ethics.

Notable companies on this year's list included:
-----------
Gap Inc.
Timberland
Ford Motor Company
Microsoft
eBay Inc.
Waste Management
PepsiCo
Kellogg Company
Target
Best Buy
Cisco
UPS

The complete list can be found at the Ethisphere website.


While the bad ones are getting their daily dose of much deserved scorn, we should recognize the good ones. And maybe toss a little of our money at them when we can.

Good to know that someone's keeping track, too.

Eh...
My husband worked for Target and Best Buy. Both forced him to complete hours of anti-union propaganda before he got down to work.

Wow a good list for a change. Thanks Kona, it's nice to see there are still some ethical companies.
