Integrity & Compliance

Our commitment to integrity fuels our shared success.

We are fortunate to be building Fortive on a strong foundation. Our shared purpose—“Essential technology for the people who create, implement and accelerate progress”—was born out of the rich innovation inherent in our operating companies. Our commitment to ethics and integrity is another critical legacy. It reminds us that how we do our work is just as important as what we do. Our strong culture of integrity and compliance is critically important to our collective success.

Our values speak to these points. “We build extraordinary teams for extraordinary results” stresses that we drive for outstanding performance in a transparent, blame-free and respectful environment. “Customer success inspires our innovation” affirms that quality will always be at the forefront of our decisions. All of us at Fortive believe “Kaizen is our way of life,” committing us to the spirit of continuous improvement. And “We compete for shareholders” underscores that our stakeholders—shareholders, customers and fellow employees—want to be associated with a company that upholds the highest standards of integrity.

We are firmly committed to building our business with integrity, and dealing honestly and fairly with our employees, customers, business partners, investors and competitors. The Fortive Standards of Conduct, available in 21 languages, is a clear guide for acting with honesty and fairness in all of our dealings.

"Extraordinary teams act with integrity. Integrity and compliance are fundamental to our shared success."

Jim Lico, CEO and President
