온세미컨덕터, 3년 연속 ‘세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업’에 선정  Chinese Japanese

윤리 및 규정준수에 대한 강력한 기업 문화를 유지하고, 업무 전반에 윤리적 기준을 적용한 노력 인정받아

서울, 2018년 2월 19일 – 에너지 효율 혁신을 주도하는 온세미컨덕터(Nasdaq: ON; www.onsemi.com)가 세계적인 기업윤리 연구소 에티스피어 재단(Ethisphere Institute)이 선정한 '2018년 세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업(2018 World’s Most Ethical Companies)'에 3년 연속 이름을 올렸다.

키이스 잭슨(Keith Jackson) 온세미컨덕터 사장 겸 CEO는 “온세미컨덕터는 유동적인 반도체 업계에서 윤리적 운영과 문화를 일관되게 유지해 왔으며, 이는 우리가 비즈니스를 이행하는데 매우 중요한 부분을 차지하고 있다”며, “청렴함과 책임감에 기반한 윤리적 관행을 활용하는 것은 온세미컨덕터의 가장 큰 차별화 요소 중 하나이다. 모든 직원들이 윤리 및 규정준수에 대한 강력한 기업 문화를 유지하고, 회사의 큰 토대에서부터 모든 업무 전반에 이르기까지 윤리적 기준을 적용하기 위해 헌신한 노력에 깊은 감사를 표한다”고 설명했다.

3년 연속 ‘세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업’에 이름을 올린 온세미컨덕터는 전자 및 반도체 부문에서 윤리적 사업관행에 우선순위를 부여하고 윤리경영을 선도하는데 괄목할 만한 리더십을 보여준 단 6개 업체 중 하나이다.

2018년에는 23개국 57개 산업 분야에서 135개 기업이 선정됐다. 올해로 12번째 수상자가 된 이들 기업은 전 세계 이해관계자 및 지역 사회와의 연계 수준을 비롯해 기업 문화 평가 및 개선, 진정성 있는 경영, 투명성, 다양성 및 포용성 추구 등과 관련해 높은 점수를 받았다.

온세미컨덕터는 이번 수상의 영광을 전세계 31개국에 분포된 3만여 직원들이 조직 전반에 걸쳐 기업 목표를 최고의 윤리적 책임에 두고, 이를 다하기 위해 헌신적이며 적극적으로 노력한 결과로 돌렸다. 최고경영자에서 기업 윤리 담당 임원진에 이르기까지 사내 윤리 및 기업의 사회적 책임을 준수하는 원칙은 온세미컨덕터의 핵심 가치인 정직, 존중, 진취성에 따라 모든 직원들에게 적용된다. 온세미컨덕터가 가진 탄탄한 준법적 및 윤리적 토대는 이사회에서 시작되어 조직 전반으로 뻗어 나가며, 거시경제 요인에 관계 없이 온세미컨덕터가 소비자 및 파트너들로부터 정직하고 공평한 기업으로 인정 받는 결과로 이어지고 있다.

소니 케이브(Sonny Cave) 온세미컨덕터 수석 부사장 겸 법률 고문은 “온세미컨덕터가 3년 연속 세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업으로 선정된 것은 우리의 핵심 가치가 갖는 강점과 윤리적 기반에 대한 확고한 헌신을 입증한 결과”라며, “이를 통해 우리 직원, 고객 및 공급업체들에게 그들이 높은 기준과 준법 문화를 가진 기업과 함께하고 있다는 사실을 다시 한번 상기시켰다. 이러한 점에서 3회 연속 수상이라는 이번 성과는 매우 의미가 크다”고 밝혔다.

티모시 어블리치(Timothy Erblich) 에티스피어 재단 CEO는 “2017년 글로벌 담론이 크게 바뀌면서 더욱 강력한 목소리가 나타났다. 공통의 법치를 기반으로 운영되는 글로벌 기업들은 오늘날 인류의 여건을 개선하는 강력한 힘을 지니고 있다. 올해 우리는 자신들의 목소리를 찾아가는 기업들이 더 많아지는 모습을 목도했다. 특히 세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업들은 모범적인 리더십을 계속해서 보여주고 있다. 이러한 기업 중 하나로 인정받은 온세미컨덕터의 모든 임직원들에게 축하 인사를 전한다”고 말했다.

윤리와 성과

2018년 세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업들이 보인 성실 운영은 재무 성과를 높이는 결과로 이어진다는 점이 또 한번 입증되었다. 연구 결과에 따르면, 세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업에 이름을 올린 상장 기업들은 미국 S&P 500 기업 대비 5년 성과는 10.72%, 3년 성과의 경우 4.88% 앞선 것으로 나타났다. 에티스피어 재단은 이를 ‘윤리 프리미엄(Ethics Premium)’으로 칭한다.

방법론

‘세계에서 가장 윤리적인 기업’ 평가는 객관적이고 일관적이며 표준화된 방식으로 기업의 성과를 심사하는 정량적인 평가방식인 '윤리 지수(Ethics Quotient)'라는 프레임워크를 기반으로 한다. 수집된 정보는 기업 거버넌스, 리스크, 지속 가능성, 규제 준수 및 윤리 등의 모든 측면보다는 핵심 역량에 대한 포괄적 표본을 제공한다. 점수는 윤리 및 준법 프로그램(35%), 기업 시민의식 및 책임(20%), 윤리적 문화(20%), 지배구조(15%), 리더십, 혁신 및 평판(10%) 이 다섯 가지 범주에서 산출한다. 평가 과정에 참여하는 모든 기업은 점수를 받게 되며, 이를 통해 선도 기업 대비 어느 정도 수준인지 가늠할 수 있는 가치 있는 통찰을 얻을 수 있다.
