How to use the Code of Conduct

We should use the Code of Conduct to guide us in making the right decisions. As part of our commitment to our values, we want to make sure you have the resources you need to make good choices for Bath & Body Works and our associates. Our Code is based on our values and sets forth our standards and expectations and points you to the Bath & Body Works associates who are available to help you. In addition to the Code, you are also expected to comply with any other policies and procedures that apply to your role and function.

We conduct business around the world, so our policies are sometimes different from local laws, rules, cultural norms and regulations. When it appears there is a conflict, you should typically comply with the more restrictive requirement. However, if a cultural norm appears to violate our values or if you are unsure about the right course of action in a specific situation, contact your manager, Human Resources partner or Global Ethics & Compliance.

Bath & Body Works directors, officers and associates must comply with our Code of Conduct. Third parties representing Bath & Body Works may also be asked to comply with relevant aspects of our Code of Conduct. Bath & Body Works associates working with third parties should make sure third parties have appropriate information about our policy requirements and report third party misconduct or potential violations of law to Global Ethics & Compliance.


We ask all associates to certify to our Code of Conduct, which means that:

  • You have read and agree to abide by our values, the Code of Conduct and all company policies applicable to your role.
  • You understand how the Code of Conduct relates to your position with Bath & Body Works.
  • You agree to ask questions of the appropriate contacts when you are unsure about the right course of action.
  • You will complete all required training on a timely basis.
  • You understand our expectation that you will report suspected violations of our Code of Conduct.
  • You will cooperate in any investigations of possible violations.
  • You understand this Code of Conduct is not an employment contract, and we may change it at any time.
  • Your electronic signature constitutes your certification to the Code of Conduct and all other company policies applicable to your role.
