  • Set a strong example of ethical conduct.
  • Provide training, education, and resources to support employees in complying with the Code.
  • Require their employees to take their business conduct courses and certify compliance with the Code of Conduct.
  • Ensure that anyone who reports a suspected violation or who cooperates in a company investigation is protected from retaliation.
  • Encourage employees to speak up if they have questions or concerns. Discipline misconduct and reward good behavior.
  • Follow 3M’s escalation requirements and be aware that some issues have mandatory escalation requirements.
