Ethisphere names Henry Schein as one of the 2024 World's Most Ethical Companies® for 13th consecutive year

Henry Schein, the world’s largest provider of health care solutions to office-based dental and medical practitioners, has received the 2024 World’s Most Ethical Companies® recognition by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.

Henry Schein has been recognised since 2012 and is one of only two honourees in the Healthcare Products industry. In 2024, 136 honourees were recognised spanning 20 countries and 44 industries.

“Our Company has a long history of holding ourselves accountable to our five key constituencies, who together form our ‘Mosaic of Success’: our supplier partners, customers, Team Schein Members, shareholders, and society at large,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein. “Being recognised once again by Ethisphere reinforces Team Schein’s dedication to our stakeholders, our commitment to corporate citizenship, and our mission of ‘doing well by doing good.’ The trust that we have built amongst our constituencies has allowed us to catalyse change in the markets we serve and continue to help make a healthier world.”

Since its founding in 1932, Henry Schein’s approach to corporate citizenship has centred around a higher ambition that the social and environmental wellbeing of the community at large contributes to the success of the Company. This recognition is a driving force behind how Henry Schein adapts and evolves to the changing needs of society.

Examples of the Company’s corporate citizenship efforts include:

  • Advancing public-private partnerships to strengthen pandemic preparedness and the resilience of the global health care supply chain, serving as chair of the Private Sector Roundtable on Global Health Security and as private-sector lead of the Pandemic Supply Chain Network.
  • Strengthening the capacity of health care professionals through Henry Schein signature programs such as the Systemic Healthcare Entrepreneurs (SHE) Programme, and serving as chair of The Arnold P. Gold Foundation Gold Corporate Council.
  • Fostering meaningful connections among Team Schein by launching programs such as the We Care Global Challenge, an initiative that aims to bring colleagues together for people and communities in need under the shared mission of “Helping Health Happen”.
  • Continuing to engage with the Company’s executive leadership team and wellness committee to provide education, tips, and programming that encourages workplace flexibility and helps reduce stress and burnout.
  • Completing its 2023 Pulse Global Culture Survey with feedback that Team Schein Members overall enjoy working for the Company and intend to stay.
  • Expanding the Company’s diversity and inclusion (D&I) learning journey by educating Team Schein Members on key D&I topics.
  • Enhancing strategic partnerships with industry associations, customers, and suppliers that support access to quality and equitable health care through various key programs and initiatives such as the American Dental Association Foundation’s Gives Kids A Smile Program, Alpha Omega-Henry Schein Cares Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program, Special Olympics, M.I.L.E. Healthcare Pathways™ Program, and more.
  • Developing principles and assessing risks around the use of artificial intelligence technology.
  • Continuing to enhance global supply chain transparency.

“Congratulations to Team Schein for being recognised as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies® for the 13th consecutive year,” said Erica Salmon Byrne, Ethisphere’s Chief Strategy Officer and Executive Chair. “It’s impressive to see Henry Schein’s purpose-driven mission reinforced through initiatives promoting sustainable business practices and contributing positively to society. We are pleased to honour Henry Schein for its ongoing commitment to corporate citizenship and to delivering solutions for a healthier tomorrow.”
