Cisco Recognized for Ethics and Social Innovation

     It’s been quite a month.  For the third year running, Cisco has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies in 2010 by Ethisphere Institute.  The World’s Most Ethical Company designation is awarded to those companies that have leading ethics and compliance programs, particularly as compared to their industry peers.

Cisco Networking Academy, now in its second decade, is also the recent recipient of The Financial Times-Justmeans Social Innovation Award for Best Stakeholder Engagement.  The Social Innovation Awards present a forum for organizations to highlight their latest concepts and practical applications to improve and advance social needs and better business.   

At Cisco we are proud and honored to be recognized for our commitment to and focus on doing good.

  1. Hi,This may be totally off topic from this blog but I wasn't sure where else to go.I am currently studying (on my own time) for my CCIE Routing and Switching. I've noticed my friend who has his CISSP is bound by a Code of Ethics.I was wondering are CCIE bound by any such code - and if not, why isn't there a code of ethics for Network Administrator that wield an ever increasing amount of power over their companies operations?I'd appreciate a response to this.Regards,Darrick Lutz

  2. Great post,thanks Robyn. In a perfect world every company would be doing this.

  3. Well Done And Well Deserved!It’s very satisfying to see good behaviour and attitude rewarded and I really believe that it does support the bottom line. I know that when making a significant order I worry, not about Cisco but about suppliers I’ve not worked with. Awards like this give confidence to new buyers and there might be someone some place who hasn’t partnered with you so far.Regards Lou
