Training and awareness

All of our sites are required to build awareness of human rights among employees, identify risks, and put processes in place to manage them. We expect our entire workforce to continually monitor and report potential issues to management, human resources or our ethics office, and to abide by our values.

Any individual's noncompliance with our standards and related labor laws is not tolerated and will result in corrective action, including termination. Site human resources and legal personnel monitor and enforce appropriate behavior.

We provide training modules related to human rights, ethics and compliance to help managers, security personnel and employees worldwide – including those in higher-risk countries where we operate. This training helps create and maintain a respectful, humane and nondiscriminatory workplace. Training programs cover topics such as cross-cultural awareness, bullying, security and human rights risks.

The TI Diversity Network provides another comprehensive resource through which we can initiate open and constructive dialogue on issues, myths and perceptions of various cultures.
