IRVINE, Calif., June 16, 2015 - Resources Global Professionals ("RGP" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has been recognized by Forbes and MSCI ESG Research as one of the 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in America for 2015.
"We are proud to be selected as one of Forbes' 100 Most Trustworthy Companies," said Tony Cherbak, chief executive officer and president. "This recognition says a lot about our Company and our guiding principle of always doing the right thing."
To create this list, MSCI ESG Research screened more than 5,500 publicly-traded North American companies using a rating system called AGR (Accounting and Governance Risk) to identify the 100 that most consistently demonstrated transparent accounting practices and solid corporate governance. Companies were scored on a one to 100-point scale, with lower values representing greater risks. RGP scored a 94 for its "Current AGR" and a 90 for its "Average AGR Last Four Quarters."
The list of 100 companies is sorted into three groups: large cap (market caps of $5 billion or more), mid cap ($1 billion to $5 billion) and small cap ($250 million to $1 billion), as of March 7, 2015. RGP is part of the small cap group. Companies listed in each group had the most transparent and accurate reporting on their financial outcomes, according to MSCI ESG Research.
RGP has been recognized over the years for numerous national, regional and local awards. For a full listing, please click Awards & Recognition.
