Updated Business Code of Conduct

Everyone is responsible for abiding by AltaMed’s core values, with particular regards to three: Integrity, Honesty, and Respect in All of Our Endeavors. To help achieve this common goal, our Board of Directors have approved a revision to the Business Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct establishes AltaMed’s ethical standards for professional business conduct and affirms our commitment to compliance. While the Code of Conduct does not cover every issue that may arise, it lays out clear expectations for all board members, employees, contractors and all other representatives of the organization when conducting business on behalf of AltaMed. 

AltaMed’s reputation is either upheld and enhanced or diminished by each person’s decisions, actions, and conduct. As such, it is important that you carefully read and understand the contents of the Business Code of Conduct and that you apply the principles to your daily work. Much of what’s in the Code of Conduct is not only the right thing to do, it is the law. If you are in a situation that you believe may violate or lead to a violation of the Code of Conduct, discuss the issue with your supervisor or speak directly with a staff member in the Office of Compliance and Ethics (OCE). In addition, you can report any concerns by using the anonymous Compliance Hotline, as directed in the Code of Conduct.
