“If ethics were easy, everyone would be a saint. The real test of character is whether you do the right thing even when it costs more than you want to pay”
Michael Josephson, Founder of nonprofit Joseph and Edna Josephson Institute of Ethics
It’s often said that doing what’s right isn’t always easy. At its most basic form, ethics is about doing what’s right, and Day & Zimmermann strives to equip employees with all the knowledge and tools needed to do what’s right.
To help everyone understand and do what’s right, we have a comprehensive Ethics & Compliance Program built on our values, particularly integrity, and including our Code of Ethics, on-line and live training and 22 Ethics Officers at Company locations across the country.
Importantly, to do what’s right we must hold ourselves and each other accountable for how we conduct business. That means reporting unethical behavior. That’s why we offer a toll free and confidential ethics help line (877-319-0270) and website. Every concern reported is thoroughly and properly investigated and addressed appropriately. I want to emphasize that we have a strict zero tolerance policy against retaliation against any employee who reports a concern in good faith. You can feel safe in knowing that the Company views this protection from retaliation with the utmost seriousness.
