PBI’s Code of Business Conduct states that associates are “prohibited from taking for themselves opportunities that are discovered through the use of corporate property, information or position without the consent of the authorized partners. No associate may use corporate property, information, or position for personal gain, and no associate may compete with PBI directly or indirectly. Associates owe a duty to PBI to advance PBI’s interests when the opportunity to do so arises.”
All PBI associates must review, acknowledge their understanding and adherence in writing, and are subject to PBI’s Code of Business Conduct. The Code describes procedures for the internal reporting of violations. All associates must comply with those reporting requirements and promote compliance with them by others. Failure to adhere to this Code by any associate may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
