Zero tolerance for non-compliant behavior
We conduct our business responsibly and in compliance with the laws and regulations of all the countries where we do business. The company does not tolerate illegal and unethical behavior. We have established binding company guidelines that require all our managers and employees worldwide to behave ethically and in conformity with the law. These guidelines are the basis of our work and the relationships of our employees with one another as well as with our customers and partners.
The cornerstone of compliance in any company is management’s explicit directive to all employees that laws must be obeyed and that no infractions will be tolerated. At Siemens, this directive is set out in the Business Conduct Guidelines. These guidelines call upon employees to obey the laws, and not just in general terms.
The Compliance Helpdesk "Tell Us" offers Siemens employees or managers as well as customers, suppliers and other Siemens business partners the opportunity to submit reports about violations of the Siemens Business Conduct Guidelines 24/7 all over the world - secure and confidential.
Employees and third parties can contact the external ombudsman on a confidential and anonymous basis if they have noticed any improper business practices in the company.
