Anti-Corruption

IDEX strictly prohibits bribes and kickbacks of any kind. Bribery and corruption erode public confidence in the marketplace. Employees and third parties acting on behalf of IDEX are prohibited from making improper payments of any type, to government officials or individuals in the private sector, to improperly influence a business or government decision, secure an improper advantage, or obtain or retain business.

IDEX has adopted an Anti-Corruption Policy that addresses IDEX’s standards on anti-corruption and provides guidance on various anti-corruptions laws. The Anti-Corruption Policy supplements the IDEX Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and other Corporation Policies and Procedures that cover standards of conduct and ethics.

International Trade Compliance

As a global company with international supply chains and trade channels, it is IDEX’s policy to comply with all applicable local and international import, export, and trade compliance laws including laws regarding valuation, tariff classification and country of origin determination; export controls, trade embargoes and restrictions, sanctions and boycotts; and remedies to unfair trade practices, such as anti-dumping and countervailing duties.

Treating One Another With Mutual Respect

All individuals are entitled to respectful treatment at IDEX. Being respected means being treated fairly, honestly and professionally, with each person’s background, skills and perspectives valued.  A respectful workplace is free from unlawful discrimination and harassment, but it involves more than just compliance with the law. It is a work environment that is free of inappropriate and unprofessional behavior and consistent with IDEX’s values – a place where all individuals are invited to do their best every day and feel free to report any concerns.

IDEX’s Code of Conduct prohibits discrimination at any point in the employment process on the basis of race, color, religion, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status, national origin, age, disability, gender identity or gender expression, protected veteran’s status, genetic information or any other characteristic protected by local law or regulation. IDEX does not tolerate harassment or any offensive or disrespectful conduct in the workplace. Harassment can include verbal, physical or visual conduct that interferes with another’s work environment or otherwise creates an offensive, intimidating, disruptive, abusive or hostile work environment.

Supplier Code of Conduct

Our suppliers are our valued partners. We strive to do business with reputable third parties and we strive to be fair in our selection of suppliers and consultants. We select our suppliers and consultants based on qualifications, service, competitive price and a shared commitment to ethical conduct in the workplace. All of our suppliers are required to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct. Employees involved in selecting suppliers, consultants and other third parties are required to be objective and fair and disclose any personal, financial or ownership interest in a third party prior, during and throughout the selection process.

Child Labor, Slavery, and Human Trafficking

IDEX does not engage in, or support, child labor, human trafficking or slavery or knowingly support companies that utilize any form of child labor, slavery or human trafficking.

Open and Honest Reporting

At IDEX, we have an open door philosophy. This means that we encourage individuals to report concerns, ask for guidance and voice their opinions.  Individuals must feel comfortable to raise questions, especially when there are gray areas. We support open and honest communication. Unfortunately, sometimes rules are broken. When that happens, individuals must bring those matters to our attention so we can resolve those issues. In fact, when an individual becomes aware of something that may violate our code, our values, company policy or the law, he/she is obligated to bring it to the company’s attention. Individuals have the option of reporting concerns anonymously, unless restricted by local privacy laws. IDEX maintains the confidentiality of the report and the privacy of the persons involved, to the greatest extent possible, consistent with the ultimate goal of conducting a thorough and complete investigation. IDEX strictly prohibits retaliation of any kind.

Any individual who suspects misconduct/violations of ethical business standards, the IDEX Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, or IDEX’s equal employment standards may seek information or file a report by visiting our ethics hotline.  See below for contact information.
