Human Rights

Human rights are at the heart of our purpose and values. We join the global community in promoting and protecting human rights and working to stop actions that infringe on these rights.

Our global policies, procedures, and practices, including our publicly available Code of Business Ethics and Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct, reflect our commitment to human rights, fair labor conditions, and our expectations for those with whom we do business.

We have zero tolerance for corruption and screen third parties to endeavor to ensure that violations of human rights, financial crimes, or other criminal activity are not occurring in our supply chain. We compete fairly for business, protect the privacy of data entrusted to us, engage solely in compliant human research, and are dedicated to sustainable procurement with no use of conflict minerals, among many other practices.

Within our business and operations, we are deeply committed to supporting our employees and treating them fairly, always seeking to maintain an equitable and inclusive atmosphere for a workforce that thrives on diversity. We provide access to benefits that promote employees' health, well-being, and security, and that of their families. We respect our employees' rights to discuss and agree to terms and conditions of employment without coercion and to freely terminate their employment. We ensure that our employees are of legal working age for their position and have a safe, healthy, and respectful workplace.

We engage with our stakeholders regularly to identify human rights issues of interest, the effectiveness of our efforts, and channels for receiving feedback. We integrate any findings into planning and decision making through means tailored to the circumstances and regularly evaluate for any changes needed.

We detail our general approaches to managing our impact throughout sections of this report that relate to human rights relevant to our business.
