The Beckers Code of Conduct defines key ethical principles that guide us in our daily business.
Code of Conduct
The Beckers Code of Conduct applies at all levels: from executives and managers to line employees. We consistently apply our core values with respect to human rights, labour standards, environmental standards and anti-corruption. These conditions are defined in the United Nations Global Compact.
Pursuing our objectives involves governance and ethics. To avoid any misunderstandings in its application in day-to-day situations, the Beckers Code of Conduct is structured into six categories: legal compliance, accounting and reporting, workplace practices, community involvement, conflicts of interest, gifts and bribes. Employees should report any cases of misconduct.
Our policy is to discuss any issues and concerns openly and fairly. Employees are encouraged and expected to report any and all incidents of non-compliance with this Code of Conduct.
Failure to comply may result in civil and criminal liability and /or disciplinary action, including termination of employment.
Beckers Group provides advice or guidance on the interpretation of this Code of Conduct on request.
Report of Misconduct
Employees can use our confidential “whistle blowing” telephone, email or postal address. These can be used to bring concerns and issues to the attention of the Beckers Group management or an external person, who will in turn make every effort to maintain the anonymity and confidentiality of those reporting.
