Our reputation for integrity is an asset that every employee takes pride in. Agility encourages employees to report possible violations of our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct and offers several ways for employees to elevate their concerns:
- By notifying their supervisor or manager if they are comfortable doing so
- By sending an email to the personal mailbox of any member of the Ethics team or to firstname.lastname@example.org
- By entering a report on our secure website from our employee intranet
- By calling the Agility Alert Line, a toll-free number that enables employees in 35 or our operating countries to make anonymous reports through multi-lingual third-party operators. The U.S. number is answered 24/7 in more than 10 languages
Any employee who submits a report in good faith will be protected from retaliation. Incidents reported are reviewed and, when appropriate, investigated by Ethics and Compliance team.
