The morality of our company is underpinned by company values of which integrity and respect are at the forefront. The requirement to our stakeholders, whether employees or clients, is to maintain a high and unwavering level of integrity and respect throughout all our business activities and our employees are measured against these. Our Code of Ethics summarises our stance in relation to some key ethical subjects.
Anti-bribery and Corruption
Our company will not tolerate any form of bribery by, or of, its employees, agents or consultants or any person or body acting on its behalf. Any breach of this policy is likely to constitute a serious disciplinary, contractual and criminal matter for the individual concerned and may cause serious damage to the reputation and standing of the company. The company may also face criminal liability for unlawful actions taken by its employees or associated persons under the Bribery Act 2010. All employees and associated persons are required to familiarise themselves and comply with this policy, including any future updates that may be issued from time to time by the company.
Our stance is to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to our business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our own business and supply chains. The company is committed to the principle of equal opportunities for all employees and workers, regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, age, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, or disability. As outlined within our Equal Opportunities, Diversity and Non-Discrimination Policy.
