The ELCA Board of Pensions received the 2006 Minnesota Business Ethics Award in recognition of its balance between mission orientation and business process discipline. The board shared the honor for midsized companies (100-500 employees) with Premier Banks.
The Minnesota Business Ethics Award recognizes Minnesota businesses that have exemplified and promoted ethical conduct for the benefit of the workplace, marketplace, environment and community.
“Receiving this award is an honor and tribute to our organization’s service as part of” the ELCA, said John G. Kapanke, board president. “Being faithful to the well-being of more than 50,000 people by helping them to lead healthy lives and achieve financial security, and managing $6 billion in assets requires high ethical standards at all levels of the organization.”
The Board of Pensions, headquartered in Minneapolis, provides retirement, health and related benefits and services to those who serve through the ELCA and other faith-based organizations.
