Here at inVentiv Health, we work to create a culture of success at every level, from the workplace, to the doctor's office, to the community where you live. We believe that ethical and philanthropic standards go hand-in-hand with economic growth. We believe that investing in our local communities—and improving healthcare—is an investment in the future.
We believe that strong communities are a vital element of healthcare. Whether we're working in a global or local community, we strive to do our part. Our businesses and our employees show their generosity in many ways. Here are just a few examples:
As a leading global services provider to companies under ever-increasing public and regulatory scrutiny, inVentiv Health expects our employees, officers and directors, as well as our consultants, vendors and others who act on our behalf, to conduct our business ethically and with integrity in all we do. Maintaining compliance and ethical standards is essential to our ability to earn and retain the trust of our customers and stakeholders. To ensure that actions taken on behalf of the Company are honest, ethical and lawful, inVentiv Health’s Board of Directors has adopted the Company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the Code), which sets forth the Company’s expectations of acceptable behavior in a variety of areas including healthcare laws and regulations, competition and fair dealing, interactions with government personnel, conflicts of interest, entertainment and corporate gifts, the workplace environment, financial reporting and recordkeeping, confidentiality, protection and proper use of company assets and insider trading. The Code also provides resources for seeking guidance and reporting suspected illegal or unethical behavior.
Healthcare related laws and regulations that may apply to the Company’s business include:
The inVentiv Health Code is accessible at: http://www.inVentivHealth.com/docs/CodeofConductPolicy.pdf. It has been translated into various languages.
Employees are strongly encouraged to speak to their supervisor, Human Resources representative or Human Resources management, Legal Department or inVentiv Health’s General Counsel or Chief Compliance Officer if they are seeking guidance or to report any suspected violations of the Code, Company policy or the law. However, there may be times when employees are not comfortable doing so or where individuals other than employees wish to raise concerns. inVentiv Health therefore also provides a mechanism for reporting concerns via the inVentiv Health Hotline. The Hotline can be accessed at 800 673 7309 from any phone free of charge (country-specific direct dial access codes may apply) or via the website address at: www.inVentivHealthComplianceHotline.ethicspoint.com. Both systems are accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Reporters are encouraged to provide sufficient detail to enable a thorough review of the matter, which will be kept confidential to the extent possible. Hotline reports can also be made anonymously to the extent permitted by law. No retaliation will be tolerated against those who report concerns in good faith.
