Stamp of Approval

Ford Motor Co.'s Director of Compliance Jim Carroll advocates third-party validation of a company's ethics and compliance program. Ford engaged the Ethisphere Institute, a think tank devoted to business ethics and corporate social responsibility, to review its program.

Ethisphere's anti-corruption validation process compares a company's program against a database of 2,000 companies' ethics policies and practices, according to Executive Director Alex Brigham. A company that falls within the top quadrant of the database is eligible for verification valid for two years.
