The Risk and Compliance function is responsible for the establishment, maintenance, education, and awareness of core policies including the Code of Conduct, Anti Bribery and Corruption and the SHEQ (Safety Health Environment and Quality) Policies. These policies are reviewed and updated annually and are available to all employees on the internal Intranet and supported by an annual mandatory training programme.
The continued performance of Williams Lea is reliant on the integrity and effective engagement of each individual employee in the global business. Each employee has a responsibility to conduct themselves with integrity and treat colleagues, teams and managers with the same respect and professionalism is given to our clients and external stakeholders. The expectations around conduct and behaviour are clearly defined by the Williams Lea Code of Conduct.
Ethical and lawful behaviour is the fundamental principle that defines our ways of working within the business and with our Business Partners, Shareholders and the General Public. There is a zero tolerance to any breach of the Anti-Bribery and Corruption policy and comprehensive procedures, training and awareness programmes have been established to achieve compliance with relevant Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery Laws in the countries in which we operate.
The integrated Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) policy aims to safeguard our reputation, minimise loss, improve our sustainability performance and provide continued service delivery. Our SHEQ Policy defines the high-level structure within which the Group can meet its legal, regulatory, and contractual obligations around this subject matter.
