Kurt J. Hilzinger - Chairman of the Board
"At Humana, we stress the importance of conducting ourselves in an ethical, legal and straightforward manner. We emphasize our commitment to integrity by following four basic ethical principles. First, we act fairly and honestly with those whom our actions affect and treat them as we would expect them to treat us if the situation were reversed. Second, we comply with laws -- not only with the letter but also with the spirit of all applicable laws and regulations. Third, we adhere to high ethical standards of conduct in all business activities and act in a manner which enhances Humana's standing as a corporate citizen. And fourth, we promote relationships based on mutual trust and respect and provide an environment in which associates may question a company practice without fear of adverse consequences."
