Our reputation is one of our most invaluable assets, and we are determined to keep it that way. We are commited to behaving responsibly, ethically and in compliance with the law and internal policies. This commitment is the cornerstone of our Integrity & Compliance Programme, which applies to all colleagues within the Adecco Group, from our Board of Directors to the Executive Committee, line managers and colleagues.
As the leading talent advisory and solutions company, we are convinced that we earn the trust of our clients and the people we serve by providing quality services. We do not tolerate bribery and corruption in any form. We do not directly or indirectly offer, give or tolerate any illegal payments or other benefits to influence someone to give us an improper commercial advantage, irrespective of location or culture. We also do not allow others to exert such undue influence on us. We seek to avoid even the appearance of undue influence. Our global bribery and corruption prevention programme sets our standards and procedures, including training, to ensure compliance across the Group.
We expect the same commitment to legal and ethical behaviour from our business partners. We carefully select third parties and hold them to the same high ethical, social and environmental standards we use for ourselves. This helps ensure we are not part of or party to activities, wherever they take place, that may expose us and our stakeholders to unnecessary risks.
We have built and continue to foster an open culture of mutual respect and trust where colleagues can seek help, advice and speak up. Our Adecco Compliance & Ethics Reporting Line is available to anyone to report actual or potential violations of the law, the Adecco Group's Code of Conduct, policies or procedures.
