 Express Scripts Named as a 2014 World's Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere  Institute  MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 26, 2014 /CNW/ - Express Scripts has been recognized as  a 2014 World's Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute, an  independent centre of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics  and governance.  "Millions of Canadians trust Express Scripts Canada to manage their  prescription drug benefit, and we work to earn that trust with a steadfast  commitment to ethical behaviour, good governance and topnotch service to  clients and patients," said Michael Biskey, President, Express Scripts Canada.  "While we are very proud to be honored by Ethisphere, we are even prouder of  the work we do every day to promote better health decisions for patients,  while managing the costs for patients and clients."  The award recognizes organizations that continue to raise the bar on ethical  leadership and corporate behaviour. World's Most Ethical Company honorees  understand the correlation between ethics, reputation and daily interactions  with their brand. Express Scripts is one of only eight companies in the  healthcare services industry and the only pharmacy benefit manager to be  honored this year.  "The entire community of World's Most Ethical Companies believe that  customers, employees, investors and regulators place a high premium on trust  and that ethics and good governance are key in earning it," said Ethisphere's  Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. "Express Scripts joins an exclusive  community committed to driving performance through leading business practices.  We congratulate everyone at Express Scripts for this extraordinary  achievement."  The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere  Institute's Ethics Quotient™ framework. The Ethics Quotient framework has  been developed over years of effort to provide a means to assess an  organization's performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way.  The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive  criteria of core competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate  governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics. The Ethics Quotient  framework and methodology was determined, vetted and refined by the expert  advice and insights gleaned from Ethisphere's network of thought leaders and  from the World's Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.  Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program  (25%), reputation, leadership and innovation (20%), governance (10%),  corporate citizenship and responsibility (25%) and culture of ethics (20%).
