We are preparing to go out to the various Upstate superintendents to seek nominations for the 2014 session of Ethics Across the Curriculum for K-12 Teachers planned for Tuesday, July 8th.

In 2013 ELEVEN K-12 teachers were awarded scholarships to attend a session. They represented 2 high schools, 3 middle schools and 6 elementary schools from 5 school districts in the Upstate.

This program would not be possible without our REALeaders, Gold and Platinum partners – all of which have the scholarships as a benefit offering for their level of membership.

To become a REALeader Gold or Platinum level member to take advantage of this benefit of assigning a valuable professional development seminar to a K-12 teacher, click here: https://cualumni.clemson.edu/give/rutlandalliance or call the Rutland Institute for Ethics office at 864.656.5379.

Ethisphere’s 2014 World’s Most Ethical Companies – Honorees

The World’s Most Ethical (WME) Companies designation recognizes companies that truly go beyond making statements about doing business “ethically” and translate those words into action. WME honorees not only promote ethical business standards and practices internally, they exceed legal compliance minimums and shape future industry standards by introducing best practices today.

This year’s 144 honorees represent 41 industries and include 21 first-time honorees. In this eighth year of recognizing companies, Ethisphere is honoring the largest group of organizations based outside the U.S. – 38 organizations from 21 countries and 5 continents.

Since it’s inception in 2007 there are 3 companies in the Upstate who have made the list each of the EIGHT years: Milliken & Company is headquartered in Spartanburg. Fluor and General Electric have facilities here. According to Milliken’s PRWeb release hotlinked below, there are only SEVEN companies globally that have made the list all eight consecutive years. It’s an amazing feat to which we give our heartiest of congratulations.

If you view the list of honorees via the hotlinks above or below, you will notice many companies with facilities in the Upstate who are also on the 2014 list.
