In a recent survey of U.S. consumers conducted by the Reputation Institute and the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, FedEx Corp. placed 7th on the Corporate Social Responsibility Index 50 – a list of the most socially responsible companies in the United States.
The CSR Index is based on public perception about the corporate citizenship, governance and workplace practices of more than 200 companies. Index data is from the Reputation Institute’s 2011 Global Pulse Study and analyzed in coordination with the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship.
The CSR Index ranking is determined by how the public perceives a company in three dimensions:
• Citizenship: Does the company contribute positively to its surrounding community in a socially and environmentally responsible fashion?
• Governance: Is the company business run in a fair and transparent fashion? Do stakeholders associate the company with high ethical business standards?
• Workplace: Are employees treated fairly and paid a decent wage? Does the company invest in developing employee skill sets and career opportunities?
