How we win

We treat others with respect, promoting a positive work environment in which we thrive as One Team.

Why we put values first

We work collaboratively as One Team, interacting in ways that promote mutual trust and respect. This means acting professionally, speaking openly and respectfully with others and supporting each other wherever we can. In this way, each of us helps to shape and strengthen our culture of excellence and integrity. A workplace that energizes and supports everyone’s best efforts is a winning workplace.

What winning looks like

We maintain a respectful workplace by:

  • Building trust with colleagues and partners
  • Listening to understand
  • Seeking opportunities to collaborate and share for the good of the team
  • Thinking ahead about how our words and actions might be perceived by others
  • Standing up to bullying or harassment of any kind and seeking help when necessary
  • Reporting inappropriate jokes, insults or other offensive comments about race, gender, color, religion, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation or other characteristics protected by the law
  • Never making—or tolerating—unwelcome sexual remarks or advances, or displaying material that others could find offensive
  • Reporting any inappropriate behavior, whether it targets you or someone else

Think first


My new supervisor is very inquisitive and outgoing. She has been asking me probing questions about my personal life, which makes me uncomfortable. She may think she’s being friendly, but her conversation topics make me feel awkward. I asked her to stop, but she said I’m too uptight and wondered out loud if I’m a good fit for the team. I don’t want to get off to a bad start with my supervisor, but she is making me nervous. What can I do?

This supervisor’s conduct is unwelcome and unacceptable, and has no place at Johnson Controls. If you feel comfortable doing so, let your supervisor know how she makes you feel and ask her to stop once and for all. If you prefer not to confront your supervisor again, you can speak to a more senior manager or your HR representative, or contact the Integrity Helpline. Any of these options will enable us to help resolve the issue. You will be protected from any retaliation.
