Philipsburg, Sint Maarten – October 23, 2018 — National General Insurance Corporation (NAGICO), a diversified insurance company serving 21 territories in the Caribbean, has joined the Carnegie Council in celebrating Global Ethics Day 2018 on October 17th, 2018.
Inspired by Earth Day and founded by Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs in 2014, Global Ethics Day is a global teach-in and an opportunity for institutions to explore the role of ethics in a globalized world. In 2017, over 60 organizations and individuals from 31 countries on five continents participated.
“Given our role as the insurance company with the largest footprint in the Caribbean, we recognize the importance of strong ethics and values in every function of our business,” said Kyria Ali, Chief Strategy & Development Officer at NAGICO Group. “Global Ethics Day is a worthwhile initiative, as it gives our team a day to reflect on the ethical issues that matter most to us: integrity, responsibility and resilience.”
In honor of Global Ethics Day, Ms. Ali and Arnold King, Head of Risk Management and Compliance at NAGICO, held a training session for employees across their 21 territories on ethics in business. They also shared a variety of materials related to ethical business and leadership and encouraged staff, customers and the general public to share their thoughts on what ethical issues mattered most to them and what an ethical world would like; the feedback was strong and very thought-provoking.
“We are very pleased to have taken the time to get the discussion on this subject matter going in the Caribbean region.” said Mr. King.
