IPG provides Code of Conduct training each year as well as anti-harassment training to all new hires in the US and to senior managers outside the U.S.  Every two years, we re-train California managers, and every four years, we re-train all US employees.  Our Chief Executive Officer invites and encourages all employees to take these courses and we have had good success in obtaining high levels of employee participation.   Specifically:
