We Treat Others with Respect and Do Not Tolerate Intimidation or Harassment
The full value of each individual’s contribution can be realized only when we treat one another with the respect, trust and dignity we ourselves expect.

As individual employees, we have the right to expect a positive working environment, along with the responsibility to speak out and ask for change if we observe conduct that runs contrary to this principle.

We build and maintain a productive, motivated work force by treating all employees fairly and equitably. We respect and recognize the contributions of employees as well as other stakeholders.

We support and obey laws that prohibit discrimination everywhere we do business. We expect to conduct our business in such a way that employees will not feel the need for representation by unions or other third parties.
