ETHICS ON THE GO
Cisco Systems converts its Code of Business Conduct
to an e-book so its 73,000 employees get quick advice.
Cisco Systems Inc. offers infor- mation technology and net- work infrastructure for the
internet. Our products and services
support online connectivity and collaboration for business, education, government, and home computing, security, and phone capabilities. Cisco generates around $12 billion in global revenues annually and has about 73,000
employees in 475 offices across 165
countries. So out of necessity, Cis-
co’s ethics team leverages technol-
ogy to reach our mobile global work-
force in ways that strengthen employee
engagement and proactively mitigate
risks. Cisco employees are tech-savvy
and many work remotely, which cre-
ates both challenges and opportunities.
Adding to the complexity is our compa-
ny’s steady appetite for international
acquisitions, which frequently bring in
new employee populations and differ-
ent styles of working.
