Board of Directors
Allstate’s culture of integrity begins with our most senior leaders. Our board of directors receives specialized ethics and decision-making education. In addition, we provide them with training on topics such as insider trading, cybersecurity, conflicts of interest and regulatory developments.
We distribute our Global Code of Business Conduct to all of our employees with accompanying training. We conduct ethics and compliance training as a standard part of the onboarding process and on an annual basis, and we monitor its effectiveness through a variety of internal measures.
In addition to Global Code of Business Conduct training, select employees undergo risk-specific training that addresses topics such as anticorruption, conflicts of interest, data privacy, equal opportunity, insider trading, procurement, social media, workplace harassment and money laundering as appropriate for their roles.
All managers undergo targeted training with respect to their individual responsibilities for compliance and ethics. We focus our manager training on creating an environment where employees feel comfortable speaking up when they observe unethical behavior, handling reports and preventing retaliation. To measure the impact of our training, we:
- Document manager feedback
- Track misconduct
- Record the frequency with which the Global Code of Business Conduct is downloaded
- Conduct an annual employee survey to measure Allstate’s culture of ethics
Our ethics culture survey is one of the primary drivers of feedback within our ethics and compliance initiatives. The CECO presents results to each senior leader in face-to-face meetings. At this meeting, we identify areas of strength and of opportunity, and many of our business areas develop their own customized solutions to address them.
All suppliers doing business with Allstate must adhere to our Supplier Code of Conduct, which outlines our expectations for human rights, environmental stewardship, diversity and inclusion, child labor and more. We comply with the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act 2015 and post our Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement on the Allstate Northern Ireland and Allstate external websites. We execute background checks on all of our largest suppliers, and on any supplier handling Allstate data.
