Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, announced today that FedEx earned the coveted Compliance Leader Verification for 2021-2022. FedEx provides customers and businesses worldwide with a broad portfolio of transportation, e-commerce and business services.
“Our team was impressed by how FedEx has embedded its ethics and compliance program into the business through its excellent training, risk assessment, monitoring, and auditing,” said Leslie Benton, J.D., Vice President, Ethisphere. “We congratulate FedEx on this Compliance Leader Verification recognition and the company’s commitment to business integrity.”
“I’m very proud of all of the FedEx team members who have worked so hard to develop our compliance programs and maintain the FedEx culture of integrity,” said Justin Ross, Staff Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer, FedEx Corporation. “Embedding compliance in the business is key to compliance program success, and a strong ethical culture, and we keep that top of mind by engaging business partners in risk assessment discussions, updates to policies, refreshing online training and ongoing reviews of our key programs.”
The Compliance Leader Verification process involves a rigorous review of an ethics and compliance program and corporate culture. It includes completing the Ethics Quotient® (EQ), a questionnaire covering the elements of an effective program; benchmarking program practices against the World’s Most Ethical Companies®; and extensive document review and interviews with executives and stakeholders.
The FedEx ethics and compliance program was evaluated on six key areas: resources and structure; perceptions of ethical culture; written standards; training and communication; risk assessment, monitoring and auditing; and enforcement, discipline, and incentives.
