Hartford named one of the most ethical companiesThe Hartford has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as a 2015 World's Most Ethical Company®. The Hartford is one of only two property & casualty insurance companies to receive the recognition this year.

"The Hartford is proud to once again be recognized as a World's Most Ethical Company," said Alan Kreczko, executive vice president and general counsel at The Hartford. "For more than 200 years, The Hartford has served our customers with honesty and integrity. Receiving this award for the seventh year demonstrates The Hartford's commitment to ethical leadership."

The Hartford's culture is built on a foundation of ethical decision making, backed by a strong ethics and compliance program that emphasizes leadership accountability and proactively preventing compliance-related issues. These values are demonstrated in the way The Hartford's employees make decisions, promote an inclusive work environment, volunteer in local communities, and become ambassadors for environmental stewardship.

"The World's Most Ethical Companies use ethics as a means to further define their industry leadership and understand that creating an ethical culture involves more than just an outward facing message or a handful of senior executives saying the right thing," said Ethisphere's Chief Executive Officer Timothy Erblich. "Earning this recognition involves the collective action of a workforce from the top down. We congratulate everyone at The Hartford for this extraordinary achievement."

Ethisphere recognizes organizations that continue to raise the bar on ethical leadership and corporate behavior. Companies are scored in five key categories: ethics and compliance program; corporate citizenship and responsibility; culture of ethics; governance; and leadership, innovation and reputation. Ethisphere named 132 companies to this year's World's Most Ethical Companies list.
