Company Ethics

  • The Company and its employees must at all times comply with all applicable laws and regulations. The Company will not encourage the activities of employees who achieve results through violation of the law or unethical business dealings. This includes any payments for illegal acts, indirect contributions, rebates and bribery.
  • All business conduct should be well above the minimum standards required by law. Accordingly, employees must ensure that their actions cannot be interpreted as being, in any way, in contravention of the laws and regulations governing the Company's operations.
  • The Company expects that employees will perform their duties conscientiously, honestly and in accordance with the best interests of the organisation. Employees must not use their positions or the knowledge gained as a result of their positions for private or personal advantage. Regardless of the circumstances, if employees sense that a course of action they have pursued, or are presently pursuing, or are contemplating pursuing may involve them in a conflict of interest with their employer, they should immediately communicate all the facts to their superior.
  • Employees should avoid investing in or acquiring a financial interest for their own accounts in any business organisation that has a contractual relationship with the Company.
  • When dealing with anyone outside the organisation, including public officials, employees must take care not to compromise the integrity or damage the reputation of either the Company, or any outside individual, business or government body.
  • Employees must work according to job requirements and in a competent, careful and productive manner as prescribed in the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Universal Code of Human Rights.
  • Employees should behave in an honest and trustworthy manner, complying with the law while engaged in work for the Company. Dishonesty, deception, theft, falsification of records including that contained in a resume or job application, fraudulent conduct and any other illegal behaviour (contravention of the criminal code), will be a punishable offence.
  • Employees should maintain information about clients, employees, quotations from suppliers etc in strict confidence and not divulge it to any third party under any circumstances. Misuse or waste of assets or equipment, failure to service equipment as required, deliberate damage to the Company's property and/or unauthorised use of the Company's equipment should be treated under legal issues.
  • Employees shall conduct themselves in a manner that is appropriate when interacting with clients, volunteers, the general public and other staff, and in a manner that meets the ethical standards of the profession and organisation.
  • Using profane language, physical violence, threatening or abusive language, gender or religious discrimination, racism to clients, the public, or employees should be treated as a criminal offence.
  • Employees shall immediately report any potential conflict of interest to their superior who will guide them as to their continued involvement in the venture. They shall also report any other employment or volunteer work or personal relationship that may be perceived as a conflict of interest such as between manager and staff, staff and supplier etc, to the superior and be guided by the direction provided. Employees shall not use information learned through their employment for personal gain.
