Business Conduct Compliance Training

Business conduct compliance training educates employees in every country where Lockheed Martin operates about the standards of conduct that apply to their jobs and the potential consequences of violations. Annually, we conduct a mandatory training review with our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who assist us with the review of the content, target audiences, and repeat intervals of our Business Conduct Compliance Training.  Results of the annual review are presented to the Risk and Compliance Committee and any significant modifications requested require the committee’s approval.  Employees are also sent a survey after course completions to help measure the overall effectiveness of our business conduct compliance training. In addition, Lockheed Martin regularly identifies the need for and develops focused supplementary training for groups of employees facing increased risk based on geographical location, and Ethics and Compliance training is required and provided on an annual basis to international consultants.  Business conduct compliance training is required in areas that present substantial risk to the Corporation, including the below courses:
