Our robust global Business Ethics and Compliance program strives to reinforce a culture of high integrity as well as to prevent, detect and address suspected violations of the Xerox Code of Business Conduct, associated company policies and legal/regulatory requirements. Our Code of Business Conduct is available in 13 languages; all employees are required to complete refresher training biennially and to acknowledge the Code on an annual basis. Xerox encourages those with ethical concerns to contact our global Ethics Helpline so that these issues may be appropriately addressed.
Business Ethics and Compliance
Business ethics and compliance is a key area of focus. Xerox has a longstanding commitment to conducting business with integrity. In fact, Xerox was named one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” by Ethisphere for the fourth consecutive year in its report for 2010.
Xerox’s corporate Ethics and Compliance program was established in 2001. It is led by Xerox’s Chief Ethics Officer. The program is designed to foster the highest ethical standards among Xerox employees as well as those working on behalf of Xerox. It also aims to prevent, detect and address potential violations of our Code of Business Ethics, associated company policies and applicable laws and regulations.
The Xerox Ethics and Compliance Governance Board, a committee of senior executives from business units and corporate functions, integrates the company’s Ethics and Compliance program into all worldwide business operations. The Board, through the Chief Ethics Officer, reports to the President of Corporate Operations and the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.
