Business Ethics

The Ethics Charter, a reference framework based on our values.
A company's prosperity and sustainable development are based on the trust it inspires in its customers, suppliers and partners. This trust must also be present in the relationship between the company and its employees and among the employees themselves. This trust can be established, maintained and developed at all levels by respecting a number of principles and rules of conduct.

Hager Group has defined a set of rules in its Ethics Charter that apply to everyone involved and guide the company in the face of specific and sometimes complex situations.

The Ethics Charter was developed in 2012, updated in 2018, and has been communicated and explained to all employees. It is displayed on all sites and in all departments.

Business Ethics training program, a tool to preserve our common ethical mindset.
Our internal training program “Ethics in business” has been evolving and growing for several years. Our objective: To preserve and strengthen our common ethical mindset globally and in the long term. Consequently, the training program ensures that our employees work on this subject on an ongoing basis. This includes classic e-learning modules as well as more interactive tools, such as game-based awareness sessions to learn how to deal with complicated ethical situations without any real business impact. Our “Ethics in Business” training program targets all our connected employees, as soon as they join the company.

Let's Talk, our Integrity Alert System.
We encourage all employees, as well as external or occasional workers and all business partners of Hager Group to report any practice, action or request they deem inappropriate or out of line with the principles stated in our Ethics Charter.

For any ethical questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Group Ethics Officer via Let's Talk at any time.

Ethical Sourcing.
As a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, when we select our suppliers we take into account their working conditions and environmental standards. Every partner has to pledge their commitment to our Sustainable Growth and Ethical Trade Policy, which lays down our principles with regard to environmental protection, human rights, working conditions and business ethics.

The precise wording of this policy can be found here (PDF, 222 KB).
