The HKRP Code of Conduct is based on our Mission Statement that ‘We help clients define and deliver projects in complex environments’ and focuses on our Core Values that help foster engaging relationships and a positive working environment.
Our Core Values reflect what we consider to be important and can be thought of as principles which the Company and individuals can live by, and which should influence our decisions and ways of working.
INTEGRITY: We give you the right advice, even if it is not what it was expected to be;
PROFESSIONAL: We understand and manage your complexity, so you do not have to;
RESPONSIVE: We are quick to respond to your needs, knowing that delays compound the problems you need us to solve; and
ENGAGED: We are focused on you, solving complexity is not a part time job.
The purpose of the policy is to reinforce the core values that set the standard for how we work and what we do and provides guidance for everyone who works with HKRP. We believe this policy guides the decisions we make and the actions we take on a daily basis.
This Code of Conduct represents our commitment to uphold ethical business practices and meet or exceed applicable legal requirements. In addition, this Code of Conduct is supported by HKRP’s detailed policies and guidelines and consistent application of these documents will ensure equitable treatment.
This Code of Conduct Policy Statement applies to each person who works for or with HKRP, including all employees and contractors engaged in work for HKRP and it is expected that all adhere to the following:
- Treat each other, the community and all external parties with respect, courtesy and fairness;
- Understand and meet all requirements within the Code of Conduct as well as the policies and guidelines that apply to their work;
- Raise all questions and concerns, and never demonstrate retaliation for someone raising a concern;
- Never ignore a potential breach of the Code and to speak up accordingly;
- Follow all health and safety requirements, relevant Government Regulations and Legislation and appropriate professional standards; and
- Not act in a manner that is designed to gain unfair advantage for themselves or for other individuals family, friends or business acquaintances.
