Jump to: navigation, search


To encourage and support its employees in the pursuit of excellence in individual and organizational performance, and to recognize and reward the achievement of such excellence;

To ensure or enforce compliance at all times with the Company’s standards of job performance and personal behavior;

To penalize or punish wrongdoing, violation of policies and rules, and non-compliance with the Company’s standards of job performance and personal behavior.

The Company’s primary concern, as articulated in its corporate philosophy, is “customer satisfaction for profit” and all aspects of its operations must be directed towards that goal.

Discipline is a necessary condition for achieving that goal and for the effective and efficient performance of the organization. Discipline is not a restriction of performance; rather, it is a necessary condition for performance. The administration of discipline must be firm, fair, and equitable, and in all cases must respect the dignity of the individual whose offense is being investigated and penalized.


Every employee shall ensure the maintenance of discipline of the highest standards of competence, professionalism, courtesy, punctuality, attendance, effective and efficient performance of jobs and assignments, honesty, integrity, probity, teamwork and cooperation, and all the other behavioral traits expected of a decent person. Each shall see to it that he/she shall comply with all the provisions of this Code and all other policies, rules, regulations, and guidelines promulgated by the Company.
