(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed)Thursday, May 20, 2010 – Humana Military Healthcare Services, Inc. (“Humana Military”) announced it has joined the Business Ethics Leadership Alliance (BELA), a groundbreaking initiative founded by The Ethisphere Institute that promotes ethical business practices. Humana Military has aligned itself with other BELA members, some of the most well known and highly respected brands in the world, to encourage openness, transparency, responsibility and accountability.  

“Becoming part of BELA enhances our continued commitment to business ethics,” said Matthew Paynter, Humana Military’s Director of Compliance. “BELA offers a unique opportunity to join with other like-minded companies that also recognize the connection between ethical business behavior and strong operating performance and brand identification.  We are excited by the potential to improve the overall corporate environment, especially within the federal contracting space, and its public perception while learning and sharing best practices with the other members.”
 
BELA seeks to establish a benchmark framework for ethical behavior in the corporate world by focusing on four core values: 
  • Legal Compliance – Following both the letter and spirit of the law to counter fraud, corruption, bribery and deceit 

  • Transparency – Setting the cultural tone from the top by encouraging dialogue on ethical issues and disclosing information in a full, accurate and timely manner 

  • Conflict Identification – Actively identifying and addressing potential conflicts of interest and appearances of impropriety 

  • Accountability – Emphasizing quality, customer protection, environmental sustainability and integrity in the supply chain

“We are thrilled that Humana Military has joined BELA as a strong advocate of these core principles,” said Alex Brigham, Executive Director of the Ethisphere Institute and founder of BELA. “We congratulate Humana Military on the decision to take action by demonstrating a commitment to supporting responsible business practices and look forward to its contributions to BELA’s collaborative efforts to create a more ethical business environment for all.”
