In the business world, we are continually confronted with stories about unethical practices that are harmful to the community.  Whether it is an insider trading story, or a news piece about poor conditions for workers, many companies often cut corners to enhance profitability and lose sight of their ethical and moral compasses.

Fortunately, Forbes Magazine is creating the standard for shining a light on companies that are doing right by their employees and communities.

Using data from GMI Ratings, Forbes came up with a list of the 100 most “transparent and trustworthy” companies by examining more than 8,000 companies traded on U.S. exchanges.

For the second year in a row, Sandy Spring Bancorp, Inc. – the largest publicly traded banking company headquartered and operating in Maryland – was named to this year’s list – which is clearly a Pivotal Play.
