Ethics & integrity

We infuse ethics in everything we do. 

In this section:

A culture of integrity

We approach ethics and integrity as part of our culture. We train, communicate, and keep employees accountable when it comes to behaving ethically and acting in compliance with our Code of Conduct, company policies and value of doing the right thing all the time.

Our Ethics & Compliance Program

We’re committed to keeping our culture of integrity thriving. Our Code of Conduct and company policies helps keep us all on the same page:

Communications and training: Our expectations are clearly communicated through leadership support, training, our company intranet, and signs in our offices and locations.

Investigating and addressing concerns: We arm employees with support and encouragement in determining the right course of action — whether that’s through their manager, their Human Resources business partner, our Ethics & Compliance team or our Ethics Line. We take all cases seriously and investigate them when they are brought forward. 

Our code of conduct is available in the following languages:

  • English
  • Chinese Simplified
  • Chinese Traditional
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Korean
  • Marathi
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
