Our success is contingent on conducting our business in an ethical manner. We believe that integrity and ethical conduct are choices that our people must make every day. It is a commitment that all of our directors, officers and employees must reinforce regularly. We incorporate these values in the Elements of our Culture, the “5Cs” (“Challenge”, “Commit”, “Collaborate”, “Choose” and “Care”), which are present in our offices around the world on posters, signs and banners translated into multiple languages.
Training and Monitoring
Our employees receive training on ethics and compliance when they first join our company using our online training platform. Key risk areas identified through our annual risk assessment drive the addition of new modules or the refresh of existing trainings that we use to engage our employees and foster a culture of ethics and compliance throughout the organization.
Third Party Risk
We expect all suppliers to adhere to our Supplier Code of Conduct while conducting business with or on behalf of our company. The code, translated in multiple languages, establishes minimum standards of conduct required for all our suppliers and provides examples of actual or potential non-compliance matters and illustrations of good management practices. We also encourage our business partners to share their own supplier requirements and relevant polices. This helps us align and provide consistency across our broad supply chain, adding transparency and efficiency to our risk management process.
