MINNEAPOLIS – Thrivent, a Fortune 500 financial services organization, has received the 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies honor from Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

“Being recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies highlights Thrivent’s commitment to business ethics and integrity,” said Terry Rasmussen, president and CEO of Thrivent. “Our clients, financial advisors and workforce put their trust in Thrivent because of our ethical culture and it’s one of the reasons we’re able to deliver strong results that help people lead lives of service and faith.”

It’s always inspiring to recognize the World’s Most Ethical Companies®. Through the rigorous review process, we see the dedication of these organizations to continually improving their ethics, compliance, and governance practices to the benefit of all stakeholders,” said Erica Salmon Byrne, Ethisphere’s Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Chair. “Companies that elevate best-in-class cultures of ethics and integrity set a standard for corporate citizenship for their peers and competitors to follow. Congratulations to Thrivent for achieving this honor and demonstrating that strong ethics is good business.”
Methodology & Scoring
The World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment is grounded in Ethisphere’s proprietary Ethics Quotient®, an extensive questionnaire that requires companies to provide over 240 different proof points on their culture of ethics; environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices; ethics and compliance program; diversity, equity, & inclusion; and initiatives that support a strong value chain. That data undergoes further qualitative analysis by our panel of experts who spend thousands of hours vetting and evaluating each year’s group of applicants. This process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify truly best-in-class ethics and compliance practices from organizations across industries and from around the world.
