Axiom is strongly committed to conducting its business affairs with honesty and integrity and in full compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. No employee may commit an illegal or unethical act, or instruct/authorize others to do so, for any reason, in connection with any act, decision or activity that is or may appear to be related to their employment by or position with Axiom.
All employees have an obligation to act in the best interest of Axiom. Any situation that presents
an actual or potential conflict between an employee’s personal interests and the interests of Axiom
should be reported immediately to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
Any employee has a conflict of interest when their personal interests, relationships or activities,
or those of a member of their immediate family, interfere or conflict, or even appear to interfere or
conflict, with Axiom’s interests or the interests of Axiom’s clientele. A conflict of interest can arise
when any employee takes an action or has a personal interest that may adversely influence their
objectivity or the exercise of sound, ethical business judgment. Conflicts of interest can also arise
when any employee, or a member of their immediate family, receives improper personal benefits
as a result of their position at Axiom. No employee should improperly benefit, directly or indirectly,
from their status with Axiom, or from any decision or action by Axiom where they are able to
influence such decision or action.
It is not always easy to determine whether a conflict of interest exists, so any potential conflicts of interests should be reported immediately to an employee’s immediate supervisor or Axiom’s Chief Executive Officer.
Employees shall deal honestly, fairly and ethically with all of Axiom’s shareholders, stakeholders,
customers, clients, competitors, suppliers and fellow employees. In all such dealings, employees
shall comply with all laws, rules and regulations and not take any actions that would bring into
question the integrity of Axiom or any of its employees.
