We are alert in our daily activities to report unethical behavior, and every employee has the right to resolve concerns relating to ethics questions in the course of their duties without retribution or retaliation. It’s important for you to understand that when our workplace is ethical and positive, everyone benefits. By being AWARE of what’s going on around you and speaking up about harmful activity, you can make a real difference.
If you see or suspect misconduct, report it immediately. While speaking to a Manager, Supervisor or Human Resource Representative is the most effective way to report concerns, the Company has also retained the services of The Network, a leading, third-party hotline provider located in the United States, so you may communicate your concerns via telephone or Internet, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The AWARE Hotline
In North America, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands dial 888-81AWARE (888-812-9273).
