Conflicts of Interest

Jabil Business Policies Reflect Our Code: to Continuously "Do the Right Thing, in the Right Way.”

Jabil recognizes and respects that employees may take part in legitimate financial, business, and other activities outside of their jobs. However, those activities must always be lawful and free of conflicts with respect to our responsibilities as Jabil employees. We must never misuse Jabil resources, influence, and assets or otherwise discredit Jabil's good name and reputation. A conflict of interest occurs when an individual's private interest interferes, in any way, with the interest of Jabil.

Avoiding Conflict

  • Disclose to your immediate supervisor any outside activities, financial interests, or relationships that may present a conflict of interest or even appearance of a conflict.
  • Exercise good judgment in all personal and business dealings.
  • Never misuse Jabil resources or assets by using them for other than a legitimate Jabil business purpose.
  • Obtain management approval before accepting any position as an officer, director, consultant, or employee of any outside business concern.
  • Never compete with Jabil.

Red Flags Signaling Possible Conflicts of Interest

  • Holding a financial interest in a company that does business with or that could otherwise affect Jabil's business.
  • Taking a job that may interfere with your job at Jabil or tempt you to use Jabil working hours or equipment to carry out that job.
  • Misusing Jabil resources or influence to promote or assist an outside business.
  • Conducting business with, or employing, a spouse, relative, or close personal friend.

Gifts and Entertainment

The offer and receipt of gifts and entertainment are an accepted practice to establish and foster valuable business relationships. However, we must always be vigilant to exercise good judgment in this practice. Gifts and entertainment are broadly defined to include physical things such as events, trips, services, benefits, and anything else of value. Inexpensive business gifts as well as routine entertainment functions and business meals will not generally violate this policy as long as they are appropriate to the circumstances and do not create an appearance of impropriety.
