11 consecutive years of ethical recognition
Today, Thrivent is celebrating being named as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies for the 11th year in a row—more than a decade of being recognized as a corporate leader that’s doing the right thing for our clients, our workforce and our communities. Our commitment to our clients and the consistency in the ways we serve them have been instrumental in receiving this recognition, which reinforces our strong and trusted reputation.
A robust application process narrows the field
The list, established by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, recognizes a select group of companies demonstrating exceptional programs and practices. Participating companies are measured on their culture of ethics, ethics and compliance program, environmental and societal impact, governance, and leadership and reputation. Each year, we must demonstrate that we have the robust structure and systems in place to ensure we’re doing the right thing. That we’re living out our values. That we’re thorough in our response if something doesn’t seem aligned with who we are. And that we’re continuing to look to the future as a leader in business ethics. These rigorous criteria make us proud to be one of 136 companies recognized around the globe, and one of only six companies in the financial services category.
How our history continues to guide us today
Our commitment to ethics and integrity isn’t new for Thrivent. For over a century, we’ve been helping people build their financial futures and live more generous lives. We started out back in 1902, and the values and ethics that steered us then are the same ones that compel us in 2022.
Like so many companies, the pandemic compelled us to become more nimble and highly adaptable. Yet even in the midst of ongoing changes and improvements, we remain committed to act with integrity and ethics. We commit to working diligently through ups and downs, and always uphold our focus on ethical business practices. While addressing the tough challenges of the pandemic, we saw companies lead—above all other institutions—on earning the trust of stakeholders through resilience and a commitment to ethics and integrity. The World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees continue to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the highest values and positively impacting the communities they serve.
At Thrivent, one of our core values is we do what’s right. Earning this recognition for several years in a row demonstrates this core value is reflected every day in our business practices and the ways we serve our clients.
Our ongoing commitment to doing the right thing
One of our core values at Thrivent is doing what’s right. We treat one another with respect and honesty. By acting with integrity, we build trusted relationships and do right by the clients and communities we serve. Receiving this honor for 11 years in a row wouldn’t be possible without the daily commitment of our workforce to carry out our organization’s values in everything they do. Our workforce demonstrates our values in their care for our clients and commitment to bringing Thrivent’s purpose and promise to life so we can help people make the most of all they’ve been given.
We couldn’t be prouder of the high standards that continue to drive our organization forward. Thank you for your trust in Thrivent. We’re honored to serve you.
