Promoting an Ethical Culture
At Vectrus, our ethical culture serves as the foundation for providing long-term value to our stakeholders. Our fundamental goals are to promote an ethical culture, deter inappropriate conduct, and detect potential compliance issues.
The primary goal and focus of our Ethics and Compliance Program is to serve as a proactive resource to our operational programs and employees as Vectrus continues to grow. In addition, Vectrus provides regular employee training, monthly and quarterly employee communications, local program ethics representatives, and a dedicated ethics team to enhance the ethical culture of our workplace. We provide multiple avenues for employees, clients, and other external parties to raise and report concerns, whether anonymously or not, through our third-party EthicsPoint toll-free hotline and website and other associated confidential reporting portals. Vectrus also has an Ethics and Compliance Review Board (ECRB) comprised of senior leaders representing HR, Legal, Ethics, and Programs, which assists with the investigative process for complaints and resolutions.
The Ethics and Compliance Program provides several important resources for our employees and external parties including the Code of Conduct, which is translated in multiple languages, and sets the ethical and performance standards that we live by and is grounded in our Values of Integrity, Respect, and Responsibility. We also provide training to our employees, partners, and subcontractors on the Code of Conduct as well as several required Business Conduct Compliance courses. Our Supplier Ethics resources include helpful information on our Supplier Code of Conduct that sets the expectations we have for our suppliers and business partners on topics to include anti-corruption efforts and policies, gifts, and human trafficking.
The Vectrus Anti-Corruption Program ensures Vectrus, its business partners, and employees conduct business operations consistent with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), U.K. Bribery Act (UKBA), and the national anti-corruption laws of the countries in which Vectrus operates. Vectrus also has a company Anti-Corruption Policy which applies to all employees, vendors, subcontractors, and business partners of Vectrus and all Vectrus programs, projects and its affiliated operations worldwide.
