From mars's site: "We choose to be different from those corporations where many levels of management dilute personal responsiblity. All associates are asked to take direct responsibility for results, to exercise initiative and judgment and to make decisions as required. By recruiting ethical people well suited to their jobs and trusting them, we ask associates to be accountable for their own high standards."
