BIMA seeks to operate with integrity, building a clean and ethical business. Therefore, its Code of Conduct describes the standards of behaviour and rules that every member of the team is expected to meet to make BIMA a healthy and happy workplace. Aside from helping you make good decisions when faced with an ethical dilemma, it empowers you with knowledge about your rights and your wellbeing in the workplace. Aside from helping you make good decisions when faced with an ethical dilemma, it empowers you with knowledge about your rights and your wellbeing in the workplace.
The Code of Conduct introduces and teaches you to make use of the Whistleblowing Policy. This is a tool you must use to report misconduct such as bad behaviour, incidents in the workplace and abuses of your employee rights. BIMA’s whistleblowing procedure makes reporting safe, keeping information confidential and protecting you from retaliation, meaning you won’t be punished and treated unfairly. If you are accused of wrongdoing you will be investigated fairly, treated with respect and given a chance to explain your actions. If you are found to have done something wrong you may be subject to disciplinary action, possible dismissal or even criminal prosecution. Essentially, whistleblowing is the most important way that you can look after your team mates and make BIMA a stronger company. It is your duty to report misconduct and failure to do so can put yourself, your teammates and the company at risk.
