Our success depends on the quality, productivity and engagement of our employees -- our most important asset. Our company culture is characterized by six core values: safety, integrity, excellence, respect, continuous improvement and teamwork. These attributes reflect our expectations for employee behavior. We work together to live our shared values, committing to put safety first, to conduct ourselves with integrity, to encourage collaboration, to cultivate a diverse, inclusive culture in which every employee is valued and respected, and to do the right thing for customers, investors, fellow employees, suppliers, and our communities.
Ensuring our employees return home to their families safely each day is our number one priority. It is matched by our dedication to ensuring public safety around our equipment and facilities. Our workforce is focused on excellence in every aspect of our business, including a strong commitment to safety. This reflects expectations the company established in our Safety Commitment Statement and by our goal of an injury-free workplace.
We believe that the heart of diversity and inclusion lies in respecting values and celebrating differences. Here at SCE, our workforce reflects the diversity of Southern California, and we express our commitment to workforce diversity and inclusion in a number of ways, including our mission.
Conducting ourselves with integrity is a core value and expectation at all levels of our company. Through education, communication, and awareness, our Ethics and Compliance Program works to create and maintain a workplace culture where doing the right thing and obeying the law are expected as the everyday course of action.
Our Employee Code of Conduct (PDF) defines our expectations of ethical behavior in specific workplace situations and helps our employees find additional guidance when needed to address questions and concerns.
