We appreciate that our status as a leader in the education industry positions Apollo Education Group ® as an example for others to follow. We are proud to be known and respected for adhering to the highest standards of business conduct and ethical behavior. Our recent achievements as outlined below speak to the integrity of our employees and reflects the dedication and resources Apollo Education Group has invested to foster a culture that values ethics and compliance.
In 2015, Apollo was the first in the higher education industry to receive Compliance Leader Verification™. This prestigious certification was awarded to us by The Ethisphere Institute, the global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, based upon an independent verification of Apollo’s Ethics and Compliance Program by NYSE Governance Services.
Compliance Leader Verification is awarded exclusively to companies with best-in-industry compliance programs that have made the decision to proactively invest resources in compliance, sending a clear signal to key stakeholders that their company takes compliance and ethics seriously.
In 2014, we conducted our third Ethics Survey with our employees. Apollo results clearly indicate that employees have a high degree of confidence in the company’s ethical culture and in the example our leaders set for integrity and ethical behavior.
In fact, our results far exceeded corporate benchmarks found in the National Business Ethics Survey, the KPMG Integrity Survey, and Labaton Sucharow’s Ethics & Action Survey.
Apollo’s published Code of Business Ethics expresses our ethical values and describes our expectations and high standards we set for ourselves. The Code guides our decision-making processes and shapes our approach to our work while empowering us to demonstrate our company values.
Honoring our value of acting with integrity, we also continue to be a recognized leader in the area of Title IV fraud prevention. We are often called upon to present and share our best-practice processes with other industry colleagues and competitors. Our industry as a whole has to work together to prevent Title IV fraud and we are proud to help our industry address and overcome this issue.
