New tool allows employees to report misconduct without fear of retaliation.
For ethical behavior to be embedded in our culture, our leaders must set the right tone and lead by example. When employees see ethical leadership and understand what is expected of them, they are more likely to speak up and report misconduct without fear of retaliation. With this in mind, we launched a new Speak Up platform and user guide for all MetLife employees in November 2019. Accessible via a desktop icon, the platform provides employees with a safe and easy way to raise a concern or report a potential violation of our Code, policies, or laws and regulations. With built-in assistance, examples, and resources, Speak Up is available to all MetLife employees and enables anonymous reporting, where permissible by law, through the Ethics and Fraud Helpline.
