The Home Depot was founded on the principles of providing a great customer experience. Each week, about 200,000 customers proactively rate their most recent shopping experience at The Home Depot through an online survey. Our analysis of more than 9 million of these customer shopping experiences last year shows The Home Depot's service levels improved across every category in such areas as speed of checkout, associate know-how and merchandise selection.
The Home Depot is committed to the highest standards of corporate governance. The board consists of 10 individuals, with nine of them being outside directors. In addition, The Home Depot Inc.'s Corporate Governance Quotient as of 1-Jun-08 is better than 99.6% of S&P 500 companies and 100% of Retailing companies, according to ISS.
Maintaining our ethical standards is of utmost importance to The Home Depot and is something we enforce strongly. The Company has a zero tolerance policy for receiving gifts and entertainment from suppliers when there is any chance that the purpose is to improperly influence the recipient, violate the Company's policies, or violate the law. This policy has been broadly communicated to our merchandising associates and suppliers. We continually review our practices and procedures, and regularly conduct internal audits of the business to ensure compliance.
