To all our employees:

One of my most important roles is to help create the best possible work environment for everyone in our company. We should also have the comfort of knowing that we work in an ethical workplace.

Every person, regardless of position, shares in the responsibility for promoting an ethical work environment. In order to make certain that potential issues will be reported, we maintain the IRI Global Compliance Helpline, a phone and internet-based confidential reporting system that allows you to report. It is managed by EthicsPoint, an independent third party.

Please use the Helpline to report potentially unethical or illegal conduct, including questionable accounting, internal controls, or auditing issues and other violations of our Code of Conduct. The Company will not condone retaliation or other negative consequences as a result of a person filing a report in good faith.

Your input is essential to ensuring that we maintain a positive, productive workplace. Please know that when you use the EthicsPoint® Reporting System, you can report misconduct that you observe, or gain clarity on whether or not something is cause for concern. You have my promise that all reports will be reviewed and responded to appropriately.

Please know that the EthicsPoint Reporting System is here for you – here for all of us. To file a report you can do so via the web at and click on “File a New Report” in the top right hand or by calling 1-888-205-7834. For International Toll Free numbers please see the list on our landing page.
