Ethics & compliance
‘Right thing, right way’ is a core value at Proserv and one that we are firmly committed to.
At Proserv, we are committed to conducting business with the highest standard of ethical behaviour, in line with our core values. We have developed a number of policies and codes of conduct to ensure that we, as a business, conduct ourselves in a legal and ethical manner, in all environments we encounter, wherever in the world our business takes us.
Our reputation depends on operating with integrity and doing the right thing and as such we foster a culture of transparency and responsibility at all times for all our employees. We also expect those with whom we do business to embrace similar values and standards.
Proserv’s business ethics policy is a code of conduct designed to guide employees to handle business situations professionally, fairly and legally. The business ethics policy has the following objectives:
- To ensure that Proserv complies with all laws and regulations applicable to our business activities in all countries in which we operate
- To ensure that Proserv conducts all our business activities with integrity and in an ethical manner
- To maintain and protect the reputation for business integrity that Proserv has built up with all our associated parties and partners.
The policy contains guidance on business and personal integrity, protecting Proserv employees and the firm’s assets. Updated in 2018, the booklet also contains new sections and important updates on:
- Modern slavery
- Freedom of association
- Conflict minerals
- Data privacy
Government Equalities Office methodology requires organisations to share mean and median figures for differences in average hourly pay and bonus pay for men and women, in addition to the proportion receiving a bonus.
In line with Government legislation, Proserv has published its UK gender pay gap reports for 2017 – 2020. Our Gender Pay Gap for 2019 was not published after the decision was made by the UK Government to suspend reporting due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Proserv adopts a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to respecting human rights, including the rights of children. Our zero-tolerance principles are built into contracts, tenders and communications with our suppliers, contractors and sub-contractors. We expect all those who work for and with us to adhere to our zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking.
Proserv has therefore adopted a Modern Slavery Policy which reflects our commitment to act legally, ethically and transparently in all our business relationships and be consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Proserv’s zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking is also embodied in our Global Business Ethics Policy.
