ethical conduct. Our integrity — both individual and
collective — is the foundation of our business success
and should be reflected in everything we do.
As members of HNI Corporation, we are
recognized for dealing fairly and respectfully with customers,
suppliers, fellow members, and shareholders. This tradition is
tested in each business transaction we carry out.
Our culture of collective integrity depends
• TREATING OTHERS WITH
FAIRNESS AND RESPECT.
• BEING OPEN,
HONEST, AND TRUSTWORTHY.
ALL LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
Nothing is more important than preserving our
Company's reputation for integrity. No competitive pressure, no
order from a superior, no concern about "making the
numbers," or opportunity for personal gain will excuse
Management members have a special
responsibility to make compliance a vital part of our business
efforts. Adherence to the Company's policies and applicable law
is at the core of each manager's duty to the Company.
If you have a question about what is proper
conduct for you or anyone else, raise your concern through one
of the channels the Company makes available to you. Your
concerns about appropriate conduct will be addressed promptly.
We are members of one of the best companies in
the world. We must uphold and continue a great tradition - an
unbending allegiance to integrity and ethical conduct.
