Life at Boeing Intelligence & Analytics :: Our Principles
Ethics & Compliance
At BI&A, we believe that the same behaviors that drive strong performance – leadership, openness, accountability and inclusion – also enable a robust and effective ethics and compliance program. Ensuring that the BI&A values remain foundational to our work reflects a daily commitment from every employee who wears a BI&A badge.
Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct establishes behavioral expectations for BI&A employees at all levels of the company – wherever we are in the world. Along with the BI&A Values, the code serves as the foundation for our workplace culture and provides the basis for the way we conduct business.
While we are committed to performing all business in accordance with relevant laws and regulations and provide our employees with a robust set of internal policies, we believe that it is our commitment to operating with integrity that ensures our long-term business success.
Every year from January to February, managers and employees meet to review and discuss BI&A expectations to keep promises, hold ourselves and each other accountable, and model ethical behavior. As part of these discussions, all employees reaffirm their personal commitment by annually signing the code of conduct and acknowledging their responsibilities to ask questions, seek guidance and to raise concerns about potential violations
Speaking up is a cornerstone for building an open and accountable workplace culture. At BI&A, we believe that creating an environment where employees are comfortable raising issues and concerns without fear of retaliation enables openness which can lead to improved business performance and inspire greater innovation. BI&A maintains policies and procedures to encourage employees to report concerns and seek guidance, using confidential and, when preferred, anonymous methods, including contacting local ethics advisors, using toll-free phone numbers and accessing web-based portals. Retaliation against employees who raise concerns is not tolerated and is cause for appropriate corrective action, up to and including dismissal.
BI&A promotes awareness of the company’s reporting system and non-retaliation policies in recurrent employee communication, command media and posters that are displayed in high-traffic work areas across the enterprise. Managers also are asked to encourage speaking up within their own teams by using materials and resources developed by The Boeing Company’s ethics group to foster dialogue and increase openness.
