Anti Bribery & Corruption
We are committed to applying the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity in all of our business activities. Every employee and individual acting on our behalf is responsible for conducting company business honestly and professionally.
We consider that bribery and corruption has a detrimental impact on business by undermining good governance and distorting free markets. We benefit from carrying out business in a transparent and ethical way and by helping to ensure that there is honest, open and fair competition in our sectors.
The Board and senior management are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems to prevent, monitor and eliminate bribery, in accordance with the Bribery Act 2010. We have issued an Anti-Bribery Policy. The Anti-Bribery policy applies to all employees and they are required to familiarise themselves and comply with the policy.
A bribe is a financial advantage or other reward that is offered to, given to, or received by an individual or company (whether directly or indirectly) to induce or influence that individual or company to perform public or corporate functions or duties improperly.
Employees and others acting for or on behalf of Pertemps are strictly prohibited from making, soliciting or receiving any bribes or unauthorised payments. As part of its anti-bribery measures, we are committed to engage only in transparent, proportionate, reasonable and bona fide hospitality and promotional expenditure. A breach of our Anti-Bribery policy by an employee will be treated as grounds for disciplinary action, which may result in a finding of gross misconduct and immediate dismissal.
