We value the relationship we have with our employees.
The success of our business depends on every employee in our global enterprise. We are committed to fostering open and inclusive workplaces that respect human and workplace rights, where all employees are valued and inspired to be the best they can be. Our Workplace Rights Policy reflects these values and our commitment to uphold workplace rights globally.
The Coca-Cola Company's Workplace Rights Policy applies to all of the entities that it owns, holds a majority interest, has management responsibility or where a bottler has adopted the policy. Our Workplace Rights Policy is guided by international human rights principles, including the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. The Policy provides a consistent approach to workplace rights worldwide and embeds it as an integral part of our culture, strategy and day-to-day operations. We annually require that all Company managers and employees certify that they have:
• Read and understand the Company's Human Rights Statement and Workplace Rights Policy;
• Acted consistent with those policies; and
• Reported any policy violations.
We require all associates of The Coca-Cola Company to know our workplace standards and human rights principles and to apply them in their work. Managers receive particularly intensive training. We also rely on our associates to speak up immediately if they believe our policies have been violated. Associates can report perceived violations confidentially and without fear of retaliation through numerous channels, including our EthicsLine -- a toll-free, secure phone line and website.
