Employers have to guarantee employees a safe and healthy environment. Sustainable and responsible business conduct should be a main pillar for any corporate policy. Core values, such as competence, innovation, safety and caring for people and the environment, drive a company to be ready for achieving its goals. Clear responsibilities and consistent business
conduct build trust and loyalty amongst employees, clientele, business partners and communities.
On the contrary, misconduct can have severe consequences. Individuals might feel unsafe, physically or mentally, and organisations face reputation risk. Consequently, misconduct must be prevented and, when committed, it must be detected. Monitoring and surveillance requires a solid governance structure, including procedures and systems.
