Employee well-being & product safety

IBM has a long tradition of excellence in employee well-being and product safety. The importance we place in these efforts demonstrates our commitment to employees, customers and business partners.

Corporate strategies, instructions and procedures must support our commitment to employee well-being and product safety. Each of us, manager and employee alike, shares a personal responsibility for the following objectives:

Our support for well-being through prevention is vital to our innovation, productivity and morale. We have realized enormous dividends through customer and employee confidence in the safety of our products and our workplaces. The IBM Company expects nothing less in our efforts than the excellence we have attained in these areas.
