Tyco International's board of directors is responsible for directing, and providing oversight of the management of Tyco's business in the best interests of the shareholders and consistent with good corporate citizenship. In carrying out its responsibilities, the board selects and monitors top management, provides oversight for financial reporting and legal compliance, determines Tyco's governance principles and implements its governance policies. The board, together with management, is responsible for establishing the firm's operating values and code of conduct and for setting strategic direction and priorities.
Tyco believes that good governance requires not only an effective set of specific practices, but also a culture of responsibility throughout the firm, and governance at Tyco is intended to optimize both. Tyco also believes that good governance ultimately depends on the quality of its leadership, and it is committed to recruiting and retaining directors and officers of proven leadership and personal integrity.
Tyco's commitment to the highest standards of integrity begins with making sure that everyone across the Tyco organization understands the company's core values— integrity, excellence, teamwork, and accountability. That understanding begins with the Tyco Guide to Ethical Conduct, a 32-page booklet that provides a guide to help employees know what is expected from them and to help them make good decisions.
