Doing What's Right
The Code sets out the core principles and expectations governing the behaviour of all employees and is a resource for employees to use whenever they need guidance or if a difficult or uncomfortable work situation is encountered. The Code helps them make an informed decision or describe what actions you can take as we believe our employees want to do what's right.
In a business situation, if employees are ever unsure about what the right thing to do is, they are required to step back and consider these questions before taking any action:
- Is it Legal?
- Is it in line with our values and behaviours?
- Does it comply with our Code and Corporate Framework policies and policy requirements?
- What would my family, friends, manager, colleagues think about my decision?
- Would you feel comfortable if you read about your actions in a newspaper?
Codes of business conduct
Cobham is committed to establishing and maintaining high ethical standards in all aspects of our business. Ethical behaviour is an asset that we value, encourage and reward.
We require all employees to read and comply with our Code of Business Conduct (Code). Training is provided on an annual basis to ensure employees understand what is required of them under the Code. All employees formally certify to this effect after the training.
Our Code is reviewed on a regular basis. It is translated into Danish, French, German, Finnish, Swedish and Latin-American Spanish.
We regularly communicate with employees reminding them about acting ethically and how to raise a concern should they need to do so.
