CH2M HILL named one of ‘World’s Most Ethical Companies’

CH2M HILL, a global full-service consulting, design, construction and operations firm, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the 2011 World’s Most Ethical Companies.

CH2M HILL has a Sacramento office serving the region including Davis.

“Doing our work ethically and treating our clients, colleagues, and communities we serve with civility and respect is core to the way we live and do work,” said Lee McIntire, CH2M HILL chairman and CEO, in a news release. “This recognition is an honor and testament to the dedication of our 23,000 global employees to conduct business in the most ethical manner.”

Alex Brigham, executive director of the Ethisphere Institute, said “as companies strive to maintain a competitive advantage, good ethics translate into better business, and better business means better bottom lines.”

“CH2M HILL recognizes the important role that principled practices play in brand reputation, which ultimately is the most valuable asset for a corporation,” Brigham said in the release. “Each year, the competition gets more intense for the World’s Most Ethical Companies and this year was no exception with a record number of organizations vying for this distinguished honor. Ethisphere congratulates CH2M HILL on being one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for 2011.”

The methodology for the ranking includes reviewing codes of ethics, litigation and regulatory infraction histories; evaluating the investment in innovation and sustainable business practices; looking at activities designed to improve corporate citizenship; and studying nominations from senior executives, industry peers, suppliers and customers.

Denver-based CH2M HILL employs more than 23,000 people including 1,500 in a dozen California offices. The company has been providing sustainable solutions to communities in California since 1946. CH2M HILL’s full-service offices deliver engineering and design services for water, transportation, energy, industrial facilities and environmental projects throughout the state.

CH2M HILL is an industry-leading program management, construction management, and design firm, as ranked by Engineering News-Record and named a leader in sustainable engineering by Verdantix. Fortune magazine has named the firm to its list of 100 Best Companies to Work For five times. For more information, visit www.ch2mhill.com.

  • Fed Up with the CH2M Propaganda MachineSeptember 06, 2011 - 10:15 pm

    We are so fed up with CH2M Hill's constant propaganda machine. For CH2M to be named one of the world's most ethical companies is a shameful testament to the world. Dig a little deeper and you'll find that CH2M has quite marketing and propaganda machine inplace. Learn what they did when one of their own executives, Tom Huntsinger, told them of their unethical conduct and to stop it. Rather than stop their unethical conduct, CH2M went after him and his family to literally "shoot the messenger." Worse yet is having the very CH2M lawyers that were involved (McCallie and McLean) tought CH2M as ethical is sickening. If Lee McIntyre/CH2M's CEO had a soul, he'd look into this and make amends to the Huntsinger family.

    You've got to be kidding - CH2M Hill as one of the "world's Most Ethical" companies! HA! They are guilty of civil AND CRIMINAL fraud - and this is only one of a lost list of illegal activities. They never did come clean about how they pulled the trigger on Tom Huntsinger (a former exec who expressed unethical conduct in the CH2M firm). Instead they did everything they could to blackball him to the point where he's dead. Hire them and you're further continuing their litany of unethical conduct and corruption.
