CHICAGO, March 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heidrick & Struggles (Nasdaq:HSII), the premier provider of executive search and leadership consulting services worldwide, today was named one of the 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in America by Forbes magazine and GMI Ratings.
Each year, Forbes turns to GMI Ratings to review the accounting and governance behaviors of more than 8,000 publicly traded companies in North America. GMI assigns each company an accounting and governance risk score based on proprietary modeling designed to identify practices that historically have had a high correlation with increased shareholder risk. The companies that make the list garnered the 100 highest scores for trustworthy behavior over the four quarters of the previous fiscal year.
"Trust is the foundation for all our firm's relationships," said Heidrick & Struggles CEO Tracy Wolstencroft. "We are committed to winning and keeping the trust of all our stakeholders, including shareholders and debt-holders that rely on the integrity of our operations. Being named one of Forbes' 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in America is recognition that our stakeholders' trust in Heidrick & Struggles is well placed."
