Corporate Responsibility (CR) Magazine has released the 3rd annual Best Corporate Citizens in Government Contracting List. CR Magazine first introduced this list in 2010 to encourage government to take a broad set of factors – including transparency in reporting as well as key performance measures – into consideration when making buying decisions.
Overall disclosure performance has improved by 5% over the prior year.
Performance improvements are particularly strong among government contractors outside of the “best” of this year’s list.
While performance remains strong among the best, the “rest” showed 11% improvement in performance over 2011.
At the same time, 3-year average returns to shareholders among the very best outpaced the rest by over 50%, demonstrating the financial benefits of transparency.
IBM, Accenture and HP held on to their top positions in 2012, once again signifying their long-term commitment to openness in reporting.
Wordpress has recently added an additional layer of security. When you try to register or login, you will see a pop-up asking for a username and password. You need to enter "protected" (username) and "wordpress" (password). You should then be redirected to the registration or login page, where you can put in your details. Here you will also be asked to put in a Captcha code. Once you register, you will receive a password. Unfortunately, for now, you will still have to put in the same double verification when you login. Please let us know if you still experience problems.
