In carrying out our purpose of improving healthcare worldwide we are committed to acting with integrity and in accordance with the highest ethical standards. We have established several corporate resources to support our employees in fulfilling that commitment.
- Values and Purpose tatements reflect our fundamental beliefs about who we are and what we do. In a large and diverse organization that operates in an ever-changing environment, our Values and Purpose statements provide consistent guiding principles.
- Doing the Right Thing is Quintiles' worldwide code of conduct. It sets forth, in general terms, company expectations of acceptable behavior in a variety of areas including healthcare regulations, conflicts of interest and data privacy protection. It also informs employees about where they can obtain additional guidance.

- The Quintiles Business Ethics Office staff is available to answer questions or offer guidance regarding the standards outlined in Doing the Right Thing.
- The Quintiles Business Ethics HelpLine is available for employees to call to ask questions, seek guidance or raise concerns about Quintiles standards for ethical business conduct. Employees are encouraged to speak with their manager or another local resource, such as their human resources representative about such matters. However, there may be times when an employee is not comfortable approaching his or her manager or others to discuss sensitive matters. For those situations Quintiles has established the Business Ethics HelpLine as a confidential communication alternative.
