Our Code of Conduct sets out our values and summarizes our commitment to the highest legal and ethical standards in the way that we conduct business. Our Code of Conduct also describes our reporting and whistleblowing policies and procedures. Our Code of Conduct is easily accessible on our firm intranet and is signed by all our staff on engagement. As a global company, we have operations and employees all around the world, in different states and countries, subjecting our company to the laws and regulations specific to those locations. All K2 Integrity employees, as well as agents and vendors working with us, must respect and comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations of the countries, states, cities, and any other jurisdictions in which we conduct our business.
We consider that the risk of forced labor, modern slavery, or human trafficking does not arise within our organization since the majority of our direct employees are highly skilled professionals and specialists. However, we are mindful of the potential for risks posed by slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains.
As part of our onboarding procedures, our subcontractors are required to commit to contractual obligations to conform with the principles set out in our Code of Conduct. Our screening and due diligence processes require them to disclose information about their business operations. We intend to expand the scope of this information to include their recruitment and employment practices.
Employees in the UK office must complete mandatory training in the form of a Modern Slavery training module describing the impact modern slavery can have on victims, how to recognise it, and where to report it.
