Integrity is the foundation of our success
Our goal is to sustainably increase the corporate worth and market value of the GRAMMER Group and generate substantial benefits for our customers, shareholders, employees and society. To achieve this aim, we create conditions that are conducive to increasing our success. These include a corporate culture that fosters the acceptance of responsibility by every individual, develops competencies and skills, and cultivates integrity as a prerequisite for working together in a spirit of trust.
Integrity manifests itself when the conduct of individuals is in harmony with our system of values, personal principles, and inner values. In this way, integrity meets the prerequisites for our business success and the trust that ought to characterize our dealings with one another.
As a globally operating group, we are increasingly in the public’s view and confronted with the need to adapt ourselves to the rules and ethical standards of different markets, countries and regions. In doing so, we strive to preserve and continue enhancing our good reputation. This requires everyone at GRAMMER to be familiar with and follow the required rules.
First and foremost is adherence to our strict ethics and compliance rules for conduct with integrity in dealings with customers, business partners, employees, shareholders and the public. In our business units, at Group headquarters and at all subsidiaries in Germany and abroad.
In addition to simply observing these requirements, it is also important to actively demand behavior with integrity from colleagues and stakeholders and to involve our compliance organization openly and at an early stage in cases of doubt. It goes without saying that we place the same ethical and compliance requirements on our business partners.
Compliance is an essential component in ensuring the long-term success of the Company, protecting employees and GRAMMER from unnecessary risks and pointing the right way in cases of doubt.
To provide support in questions and challenges related to "Compliance", GRAMMER has established its own Compliance organization under the professional leadership of the Chief Compliance Officer. The GRAMMER Compliance Management System helps employees, managers and other stakeholders to avoid potential compliance risks in day-to-day operations as best as possible by means of suitable rules, structures and processes, clarification of rule violations and service-oriented advice.
GRAMMER trusts its employees and attaches great importance to the ability to accept criticism and to openly address concerns and criticism. At the same time, employees also trust GRAMMER to investigate allegations and to sanction violations of rules and misconduct appropriately.
Through our whistleblower tool, you can easily and securely report suspected misconduct or rule violations at GRAMMER. However, we will not tolerate abuse through deliberate false accusations. We attach great importance to data protection and the protection of whistleblowers. All reports are strictly confidential.
