Whirlpool Corporation has been recognised as one of the World’s Most Trustworthy Companies in 2023 by Newsweek. To create the list, Newsweek partnered with Statista, a leading provider of market and consumer data, to evaluate companies’ business practices and relationships with key stakeholders. Whirlpool Corp says its inclusion in the list highlights its commitment to do the right thing for employees, consumers, investors, and the communities around the world where the company does business.
"At Whirlpool Corporation, one of our enduring values is integrity – this means that across our global business, there is no right way to do a wrong thing,“ said Ava Harter, global chief legal officer for Whirlpool Corporation. “We are honored to receive this recognition. It reflects the dedication of 61,000 global employees who believe in our mission of improving life at home for consumers. We cannot fulfill this vision if we don’t operate with integrity and trust."
Whirlpool Corp’s Global Ethics & Compliance Program is focused on enhancing and sustaining the company’s culture of winning with integrity and empowering employees with tools and resources to act with integrity within a risk-based framework. As part of these efforts, Whirlpool Corp launched its Integrity Manual in 2019, which outlines the company’s values and helps translate these values into everyday actions.
The World’s Most Trustworthy Companies 2023 were identified in an independent survey based on a sample of more than 70,000 participants from 21 countries. A total of 269,000 evaluations were analysed. The three main public pillars of trust were considered: Customer Trust, Investor Trust, and Employee Trust.
