Application of the Code of Conduct
Anyone working for SSR, regardless of location or position, must adhere to SSR's Code of Conduct and Guidelines. The code of conduct is intended to ensure that the demands contained in our values are reflected in our daily actions and decisions as well as in our corporate culture
This code of conduct applies to all marketing and industrial companies we manage. It applies to all senior executives, permanent and temporary employees and contractual partners (with a corresponding contractual obligation). The code of conduct does not formulate any regulations that cover all eventualities. It defines the minimum requirements and is to be understood as a guide for the implementation of our values. If a guide to an applicable law or external requirements is missing in the Code of Conduct or the corresponding documents, you are expected to use sensible judgment.
All permanent and temporary employees and senior executives, as well as contractual partners must familiarize themselves with the code of conduct, the standards and guidelines as well as the applicable laws relevant to their work. Behaviors that violate the law, this Code of Conduct or our policies must be reported to the supervisor or manager.
All permanent and temporary employees and senior executives, as well as contractual partners must familiarize themselves with the code of conduct, the standards and guidelines as well as the applicable laws relevant to their work. Behaviors that violate the law, this Code of Conduct, or our policies must be reported to the supervisor or manager.
Failure to comply with the requirements of the Code of Conduct, the corresponding SSR guidelines or the law can result in disciplinary measures or even termination of the employment relationship.
When we enter into joint ventures where we do not have operational management, we try to convince our partners to apply policies and procedures that are similar to those of SSR.
All of our officers, supervisors and managers must lead by example and integrity in their work. They must create an environment in which the team members:
- encouraged and guided to behave correctly,
- in the event of uncertainty, request and receive appropriate support and
- Ask questions or raise concerns without feeling uncomfortable or fearful of disadvantage.
We expect our executives, supervisors and executives to communicate our values and code of conduct to their teams and to proactively identify, analyze and discuss the problems associated with them. In addition, it is the responsibility of managers to introduce appropriate controls to limit risk. You must prevent violations of the Code of Conduct by strong leadership and ensure that the appropriate policies and procedures are properly implemented and followed.
