Upholding clear ethical standards.
We push the boundaries of what’s possible in mobile technology, but we never push the boundaries on ethics. In a burgeoning global industry where innovation can create new ethical questions, we find clear guidance in our high standards, values-based culture and Code of Business Conduct.
Doing business The Qualcomm Way.
The Qualcomm Way: Our Code of Business Conduct clearly describes the behaviors expected of all of us and advises on ethical and legal situations we may face in the course of our work. The Qualcomm Way describes our responsibilities to customers, business partners, stockholders, communities and each other. It guides us through such ethical terrain as intellectual property protection, conflicts of interest, anticorruption practices, harassment, discrimination and more. Every one of our employees is required to acknowledge that they have read and will comply with The Qualcomm Way and will raise concerns when they arise.
