Over the past two years, HII and our over 44,000 employees within Mission Technologies, Ingalls Shipbuilding and Newport News Shipbuilding have demonstrated their commitment to our customers and their missions, and embraced a meaningful evolution and expansion of the capabilities we deliver to our customers. Through significant change, HII’s culture of ethics and compliance remains our vital constant.
Integrity leads among HII’s values: we will do the right thing and hold ourselves and each other to this high standard. Hard stuff done right means delivering hard stuff done well, and done ethically.
HII’s Ethics & Compliance program provides employees with guidelines for daily work life, and defines and describes the values that serve as the foundation for how HII conducts business. HII’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct is a statement of the company’s commitment to integrity and high ethical standards and defines the conduct the company expects of non-employees who act on the company’s behalf.
HII continues to demonstrate its commitment to transparency, sustainability efforts and continued focus on responsibility as an enabler of growth, resiliency and shareholder value. HII’s Corporate Sustainability Report provides greater transparency around the company’s sustainability efforts that follow the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board framework.
HII employees are the company’s most important assets and essential to our success. HII gains a key competitive advantage by building a community that values contributions and perspectives from a variety of backgrounds, skills and experiences regardless of race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, disability, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity, age and veteran status. In addition to encouraging highly engaged employee resource groups, HII seeks out opportunities to shine a light on our most successful and inspirational employees.
HII invests more than $110 million annually in workforce development, education and training initiatives. These initiatives begin by supporting early childhood education programs and continue with STEM investments in elementary, middle and high schools. It also includes the apprentice schools in Virginia and Mississippi and our academic partnerships with colleges and universities.
HII and its divisions are committed to investing in the communities where our employees live and work, and HII employees themselves are enthusiastic volunteers. As a company, HII contributes to various charitable programs and sponsors events that benefit community organizations and nonprofits, with particular attention to education, veterans, and the environment.
