Compliance: Driving Our Values and Beliefs

Oct 17, 2022 / ESG Stories

Every day at HWI, our employees exemplify our company values of safety, trustworthiness, sustainability, inclusivity, passion, and innovation. And our cultural beliefs guide our daily actions on the job, helping us to achieve our vision of being the first and only call for industry.

We act on several of these beliefs by adhering to our high standards of compliance, including our internal policies and procedures and all applicable government laws and regulations. Our compliance program at HWI ensures that we’re operating in a safe and sustainable workplace where our everyday actions maintain the best practices possible for a thriving company, both now and in the future.

We developed our HWI Code of Conduct not only to help us remain legally compliant with all the latest requirements as prescribed by law; our Code also strengthens our company culture and reinforces our values. It also allows us to maintain industry competitiveness and operate in a more efficient and cohesive way. Our teams work to communicate effectively about it so that employees understand what is expected of them and how they can best abide by the standards we’ve set as a company.

We recreate HWI’s reputation daily through each interaction with our colleagues, customers, local communities, and all our stakeholders. Every employee at HWI is responsible for creating and maintaining that reputation. Providing honest services and ethically sourced and produced products while remaining compliant with all local laws and customs is just one way we ensure our reputation remains strong.
