To determine it honorees, the Ethisphere Institute examines companies’ corporate governance, compliance and ethics programs, citizenship, sustainability, corporate responsibility, leadership, innovation and overall reputation.

“MassMutual’s commitment to ethics and integrity has been in place since we wrote our first policy more than 166 years ago,” said Roger Crandall, MassMutual president, chairman and CEO. “Being named one of the world’s most ethical companies for the fifth consecutive year is an honor for our talented, dedicated employees and advisors who work hard each day to do the right thing, and reflects the confidence and trust that our five million customers have placed in us.”
