Our Commitment

NCIRE -The Veterans Health Research Institute (NCIRE) is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Our Standards of Ethical Conduct contains general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics.

NCIRE is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor, management or Human Resources Representative in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred. NCIRE has an open-door policy, to encourage communication and transparency within our organization. An open-door policy means that as an employee, you may take your workplace concerns or questions outside of your supervisorial chain of command, to another member of our organization’s leadership or to the NCIRE Human Resources Department, if that is more comfortable for you.

In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use this hotline: 844-904-1770, hosted by a third-party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to violations stated in our Standards of Ethical Conduct, OSHA guidelines, or any other stated NCIRE policy. Please provide us with as much specific information as possible to ensure we can investigate the situation fully.

The information you provide will be sent to NCIRE Management by EthicsPoint on a confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose. You have our commitment that your comments will be heard.
