Transparency and raising concerns
We believe in transparency and promote a culture that encourages employees to raise any concerns about potential violation of laws and regulations, or any other behaviours or incidents that do not comply with our Code of Conduct. Our speak up line provides both internal and external stakeholders a resource to confidentially raise concerns about suspected misconduct. All cases received are reviewed by our Legal and Compliance teams, and investigated, as appropriate, by legal and compliance personnel. Substantiated violations of our Code of Conduct, or other policies and procedures are addressed through our disciplinary procedures.
Responding to Potential Violations
Potential violations of our Corporate Compliance programme are investigated with oversight by the company’s Corporate Investigations Committee which is comprised of the General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer, and EVP Organizational Development. Disciplinary actions for violations are addressed in the Hikma Code of Conduct, and supporting policies. Hikma has a progressive disciplinary process up to and including termination of employment depending upon the severity of the violation. Disciplinary actions will be timely implemented to ensure that the incident is resolved and to prevent any potential reoccurrence.
