At Ford, we do things the right way – always – which includes encouraging our employees, agency personnel, suppliers, customers or other stakeholders to speak up when there is a concern about potential violations of our Code of Conduct, company policy, the law and other compliance and ethics matters.


While all concerns will be taken seriously and addressed, Ford’s investigation process is best facilitated when we receive as much information about the concern as possible. We ask you to provide contact information so you can be reached for follow-up. If you want to report anonymously, we accept anonymous reports.

Ford strictly prohibits retaliation for reporting a suspected violation in good faith or for assisting with an investigation.


If you wish to reach SpeakUp, please contact us.


Information you provide, including personal data, to SpeakUp is received and processed by Ford Motor Company in the U.S. for the purposes of evaluation and handling the report, and may be shared on a confidential basis with investigation personnel or others as may be necessary.
