At Apex Tool Group, we strive to treat all of our business partners fairly and with respect, including customers, suppliers and employees. We invest significant resources in business ethics training for employees and continuously work to implement new programs that stress the importance of our standards. For example, we introduced a gift giving and receiving policy to ensure there is no improper influence on how we make business decisions. Our goal is to give employees clear guidance that allows them to use their best judgment in everything they do.
We also have a confidential process in place for our employees to share any concerns they may have about ethics with senior and executive management. It is our commitment to treat all ethics concerns as high priorities with the same level of response and investigation. This provides for timely employee feedback and quick resolution. It is in this manner that we will continually improve our company’s culture, provide the best work environment and be a preferred partner for our customers and suppliers.
