1stConsulting firm to achieve BS10500 certification
Zero tolerance stance on bribery and corruption

We provide clear guidance on what we expect of every staff member though a core set of communications. These help our employees understand our approach to ethics and how we comply with laws, regulations, and company procedures that apply to our activities.

We are globally compliant with British Standard 10500 for antibribery management. We gain certification for those parts of the business where it is necessary.

Every new member of staff receives a copy of our booklet "Business ethics – getting it right." Ethics forms a mandatory component of the induction process and our ongoing professional development training.

We use experienced country managers to help identify and mitigate potential bribery and corruption risk, and we carefully select who to work with.

An externally administered confidential helpline and confidential reporting systems ensure that our staff can report any suspicious behavior without fear of repercussions. Details are readily available on our global staff intranet.

Members of our executive board continue to show strong industry leadership on ethics, participating in the UK Anti-Corruption Forum, Transparency International, and the Institute of Business Ethics.
