  1. What is corruption and bribery? 

Corruption is dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery.

A bribe is dishonestly persuading someone to act in one’s favour by a gift of money or other inducement.  A ‘bribe’ can be any inducement or reward offered, promised or provided in order to make a person act improperly, or to reward them for having done so. It is important to recognise that a bribe can be anything of value, and is not only related to the payment of money. For example, it could include offering or receiving gifts, holidays, employment and advantages for family or friends.

  1. It is illegal to offer, promise, give, request, agree, receive or accept bribes. 

It is not acceptable for you (or someone on your behalf) to:

Give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality with the expectation or hope that a business advantage will be received, or to reward a business advantage already given. Give, promise to give, or offer, a payment, gift or hospitality to a government official, agent or representative to facilitate or expedite a routine procedure; accept payment from a third party that you know or suspect is offered with the expectation that it will obtain a business advantage for them; accept a gift or hospitality from a third party if you know or suspect that it is offered or provided with an expectation that a business advantage will be provided by us in return; threaten or retaliate against another worker who has refused to commit a bribery offence or who has raised concerns under this policy; engage in any activity that might lead to a breach of this policy.

  1. Kickbacks

We do not make, and will not accept, facilitation payments or “kickbacks” of any kind.

We actively encourage an open, honest, transparent culture with our employees, clients, partners and stakeholders. We encourage you to immediately raise any suspicious conduct directly with us. Concerns should be raised immediately to the Managing Director, Gary Dickinson
