By following our core values, we strive to always conduct our business safely and with integrity. Doing the right thing is vital, but it is not always obvious, especially with the new challenges we face in our everchanging world where there will be instances that arise when we don’t know what the right choice is, we are uncomfortable with the choices in front of us, or we see that our policies and/or procedures are or may be being breached.
It is the responsibility of each of us to speak up about an activity that is risky, harmful or unethical and if we see behaviour that goes against our policies and values. We support a full and transparent speak-up culture where you can tell us about the things you deem, in good faith, to be wrong.
We want to ensure you can raise any such concerns with confidence in a manner that you are comfortable with.
Where possible, the first point of contact to raise any concerns should be your line manager. If this is not possible you can report your concerns to any member of the legal and compliance team, the human resource team, internal audit or any other senior member of staff.
We understand that not everyone is comfortable with reporting matters in this way. Where this is the case you can report you concerns directly to our independent whistleblowing service provided by Safecall.
KCA Deutag have a Zero-Tolerance approach to retaliation so if you have, in good faith, raised any concern and you believe you have been retaliated against, directly or indirectly, as a result please raise this immediately.
We trust you to always do the right thing – but if in doubt I encourage you to SPEAKUP!
Joseph Elkhoury – Chief Executive Officer
