STANDARDS OF BUSINESS CONDUCT

HOW TO USE THE STANDARDS TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS

Pause. Does a situation make you uneasy? Are your instincts telling you something is not quite right? Pause before you act and consider how to approach the situation.

Think. Is your approach consistent with the Company’s culture and the values in these Standards? Does it build or maintain trust? Never sacrifice long term reputation and trust for a short-term benefit.

Ask. Ask questions and get help. Talk to management. Get help from your manager or another manager. Email legal@nation.academy.
