Recognizing a Culture of Ethical Leadership
Raytheon has a comprehensive ethics education program to ensure that the company's values are reflected in the ethical awareness and conduct of its employees. The company's commitment to ethics education was recently recognized by the Ethics Resource Center's (ERC) presentation of the inaugural Carol R. Marshall Award during a ceremony on Capitol Hill. Raytheon Business Ethics & Compliance Vice President Patricia Ellis was presented the award by the ERC.
Raytheon's Ethics team has applied innovative approaches to the company's education program including a popular online mini-series, EthicSpace, which raises employee awareness through a series of video episodes. Additionally, the team continues to evolve Raytheon's Ethics Checkpoint module and other employee education courses to reinforce the importance of ethics in the workplace.
"Raytheon continues to foster a vibrant culture of integrity and high standards of ethical conduct," said Jay Stephens, Raytheon Senior Vice president, General Counsel and Secretary. "Our Company's values support a company-wide environment of compliance that is reinforced by an innovative ethics education program as well as the active commitment of our Board, our CEO, our Leadership Team and our employees."
