Our commitment to human rights on a global basis starts with maintaining healthy environments inside the workplace. We believe that being a responsible corporate citizen includes operating our facilities to meet all applicable safety, health and environmental laws and regulations. Security procedures are also in place to enable employees and visitor safety at all our locations and to protect the integrity of our operations through controlled access to our buildings and diligent monitoring of shipping and receiving.
Moreover, Polaris prohibits harassment, coercion or intimidation by coworkers in its workplaces. This includes words or actions based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, gender identity, age, physical handicap/disability, and other characteristics or statuses protected by law.
As our global footprint increases, we aspire to attract and retain a diverse pool of talented employees. We recognize that our employees are our greatest asset. To that end, Polaris provides equal employment opportunities for all employees and applicants and prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, gender identity, age, disability, veteran status, marital status, or status with regard to public assistance. Employing child labor, permitting forced labor, and engaging in human trafficking is also strictly prohibited.
Polaris recognizes employees as individuals with individual interests, abilities, and values. We work directly with employees and encourage an atmosphere of open and honest communication without fear of retaliation, intimidation, or harassment. We also respect laws regarding freedom of association and the rights of employees related to collective bargaining.
We are dedicated to keeping compensation competitive and consistent with all local applicable laws related to wages, including working hours.
Polaris’ commitment to human rights extends to our diverse and worldwide supply base. In addition to the obligations in this policy, all of Polaris’ suppliers are expected to adhere to the Polaris Supplier Code of Conduct ("Code"). The policies set forth in the Code further emphasize Polaris’ expectation that its suppliers conduct business with the same high degree of integrity and in the same socially and environmentally responsible manner.
