Nurturing a Culture of Integrity
Doing the right thing sounds simple enough, but in a diverse company with more than 97,000 employees, many circumstances can challenge the ability to act according to the company’s core mission and values.
To complement our established mandatory Annual Integrity Training and e-learning, we have introduced new initiatives to bring integrity to life.
With a goal to transition the SGS Code of Integrity – from being a compliance tool to becoming an integral part of the processes and culture within the Group – we have redesigned our integrity e-learning modules and introduced a series of manager-led Integrity Talks.
The e-learning modules use real-life scenarios to help employees relate integrity issues to their everyday work. Inspired by our Safety Talks, we also collaborated with our Operational Integrity team to design and implement regular meetings that promote the dialogue between line managers and employees on the standards of conduct expected of them in the workplace.
