First set out in 2003, these Values continue to be as relevant as when they were first articulated and are lived everyday by its employees across the world in multiple ways.
The firm’s employees are a signatory of the Tata Code of Conduct which is a set of principles that guide and govern the conduct of Tata companies and their employees in all matters relating to business. Introduced in 1998, the Code lays down the ethical standards that Tata employees have to observe in their professional lives, and it defines the value system at the heart of the Tata group and its many business entities.
The Code is a dynamic document that reinforces the Tata canon of honourable behavior in business. The Code has been modified down the years to keep it in step with changing regulatory norms in the different parts of the world that Tata companies now do business. These modifications have reinforced the Code, and enable it to reflect the diverse business, cultural and other factors that have a bearing on the health of the Tata brand.
