IPG provides annual Code of Conduct training to employees, covering various topics in the Code such as data security, data privacy, and diversity, equity and inclusion.

Additionally, IPG provides anti-harassment training to all new hires in the United States (U.S.). IPG also provides this training to senior managers outside the U.S. Every two years, we re-train California managers, and every four years, we re-train all U.S. employees. IPG’s CEO invites and encourages all employees to take these courses and we have maintained high levels of employee participation.
