Good Businesses? Really?

In an effort to distract myself from the unbelievable amount of horrible corporations and the people who run them, I Googled good businesses. I came across hope. I came across people who are at least attempting to treat other people fairly and who at least care.

^ Canada’s Top 100 employers

This competition provides a little transparency into the companies and allows everyone to see how and why they made the list. Every company has great benefits and more applications than they will ever need. They treat their employees with respect and dignity, just how we should be treated. Interestingly enough Monsanto Canada made the list.

There is also a list of ethical companies. The World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere. Again there are 100 who made the list this year, 26 of them are new and 24 have been dropped from last year’s list. Not one Canadian company made it but Nike Inc. did.

^ Ethical Companies

If we were to dive into these companies would any make the list? Is there really a definition for Business Ethics? If there is I can’t think of a company that actually follows it, can you? More importantly, in your opinion, do you think we should give companies like Nike a second chance? I don’t, a tiger can’t change their stripes.
