When it was signed into law in 2002, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) set a high standard for corporate governance and responsibility. SOX created a regulatory environment that not only encourages speaking up against fraud and unlawful behavior — it requires it.
Cadence Bank supports the principles and practices of SOX, embracing the kind of open, transparent workplace promoted by the law. Not just because it’s required by law, but because we believe it’s the right thing to do.
Safe healthy workplace
We protect our associates, our customers and our visitors by complying with regulations and programs that support a safe and healthy environment.
Associates are encouraged to report unlawful behavior, threats to security or similar workplace concerns through our Open Door policy and an anonymous Third-Party Hotline.
We enforce a drug-, alcohol- and tobacco-free workplace.
We have zero tolerance for all forms of violence or threats of violence, and aggressive behavior is dealt with using disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
Discriminatory treatment is not tolerated. Systems are in place for reporting any form of discrimination to managers or Human Resources, while protecting associates from any form of retribution. Learn about our commitment to diversity.
