Every day around the world, PPD employees embody the concept of corporate responsibility. We strive to be good stewards of our company and community resources, embracing the responsibilities of corporate citizenship in the communities where our offices are located.
PPD is committed to legal and ethical behavior through a corporate compliance program. The program includes executive oversight, a written code of conduct for employees, and a code of ethics for the chief executive officer, chief financial officer and chief accounting officer or controller. Our commitment to ethical behavior also includes a zero tolerance approach to bribery and corruption, as well as compliance with anti-corruption laws around the world.
Philanthropy and Community Affairs
We believe it is our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to help strengthen the communities where we live and work. PPD encourages employees and leaders to play active roles in their communities through charitable giving and volunteerism. Community investment is a triple-win opportunity: it helps people in our communities, gives employees an opportunity to give back and benefits the company in a variety of ways.
Health and Wellness
Through our work as a contract research organization, we help improve the health and well-being of others, and our employees are no exception. We strive to provide a work environment that enhances the well-being of our employees. All are encouraged to participate in the company’s wellness programs, pursue a healthy lifestyle, and integrate fitness and good nutrition into their daily lives.
We demonstrate sound environmental responsibility as a company by integrating environmental, health and safety considerations into our daily business. We support conservation in areas in which it makes good business sense, and we take measures to ensure our operations do not harm the environment or quality of life in our communities. We also encourage interested employees to support the environmental causes of their choice and urge them to continue their efforts to improve the quality of life in their communities.
At PPD our corporate culture is a critical ingredient of our success. We value our employees and provide a workplace that allows them to grow and advance their abilities. We value teamwork and individuals who make a "can do" attitude a hallmark of their work. We encourage activities that build global and inter-departmental relationships and foster team building within PPD and the broader community.
