CODE OF CONDUCT
The Code of Conduct is a collection of ethical norms and behaviour standards that HBOR’s employees are expected to follow in the discharge of their business duties. The Code of Conduct determines HBOR’s main views on legitimate and ethical conduct in the banking industry, by means of which HBOR’s standards are established.
The foundations of business ethics are rooted in law-abiding behaviour. Such behaviour includes provision of accurate and transparent information, honest attitude towards competitors, employees and partners as well as focus on social responsibility and sustainable development.
”If a company does not follow ethical rules, it cannot be responsible; therefore, ethical conduct is a precondition for creating a socially responsible business environment”. Considerations and knowledge of business ethics help us deal better with ethical dilemmas we face on a daily basis. In critical situations, a good person can make a bad decision. Business ethics contributes to business success and supports personal development.
The purpose of the Code of Conduct is:
- to avoid situations in which HBOR’s employees would become involved in activities that are considered unethical behaviour or that result in a conflict of interest when they discharge their duties;
- to define acceptable behaviour for all HBOR’s employees;
- to set high standards for work and action;
- to encourage comparison with the best practice in ethics in the banking industry;
- to ensure a framework for professional conduct and a clear division of responsibility for individual decisions and activities;
- to establish a framework for conduct and standards that the interested parties can expect from HBOR.
The Code of Conduct applies to all HBOR’s employees regardless of their respective levels of responsibility or positions. Its purpose is to provide guidance on ethical conduct and establish basic values in terms of legitimate and ethical business conduct and behaviour.
