We place great importance on fostering a culture that encourages employees and others to speak up about issues or conduct that concerns them. This could be anything from serious misconduct to noticing something which just doesn’t feel quite right.
Sometimes individuals speaking up or making a disclosure may be concerned about being identified, or any potential repercussions which may come from reporting the conduct. This is why we have a comprehensive Group Whistleblower Policy, which is designed to encourage and support individuals to report issues, knowing that it is safe to do so and that they will receive support. Individuals are also free to make a disclosure directly to our regulators at any time.
