Each HCA colleague is required to receive one hour of "orientation" training on our Code of Conduct, A Tradition of Caring, and acknowledge review of the Code of Conduct within 30 days of employment. Participants learn about the major components of the Code of Conduct, how it can be used to guide decisions and actions in specific situations, and what actions are appropriate to take when a violation of the Code of Conduct is suspected. To help support the facilitation of a successful training session, we have developed various resources, including presentation materials, online training, facilitator materials and guidance necessary to organize and deliver this program in the most effective manner.

Every year we conduct one hour of annual Code of Conduct "refresher" training for all of our approximately 230,000 employees. Each year we continue to try and find new and exciting ways to deliver Refresher Training in order to keep the topics fresh and interesting for our employees. The training serves to increase participants’ awareness of how to deal with everyday situations that relate to our mission, values and compliance policies. The training is designed to be highly engaging, whether a participant attends a facilitator-led session or takes the online course.
