- CEO challenges corporations to meet the highest standards of honest and equitable treatment of their employees, their communities, consumers and the environment and to ensure that these needs are not placed second to those of stockholders.
Citizens for Economic Opportunity (CEO) is a statewide coalition of community, faith based and citizen action groups working for corporate responsibility and health care. Originally formed in 1995 to combat harmful mega-mergers in the health care industry, CEO is now the vehicle for a growing corporate responsibility and health care campaign that is breaking new ground on some of today's most challenging workplace and health care issues. CEO is refuting the "better business climate" model for economic growth which relies on reducing wages and health care benefits and weakening workplace protections and refocusing the debate toward the long-term well-being of CT employees and their communities. ~
