Inappropriate Conduct

We believe in maintaining a working environment free of violence or threats of violence. This means inappropriate language, gestures, threats of violence, and physical violence will not be tolerated. This kind of behavior creates hostile working conditions, and violates the first of the 3 Basic Beliefs: respect for the individual.

Q & A

An associate used a word in a meeting that is offensive to me. What should I do?
Speak up and tell the person. Some words are universally offensive but some are not. They might not know the word could be seen as offensive to someone. You can also exercise the Open Door process, contact someone in Human Resources or the Global Ethics Office.
