Securitas integrity line
All employees and business partners are encouraged and expected to report any cases of non-compliance with Securitas’ Values and Ethics Code, with the assurance that the reporter will not be subjected to any negative consequences.
Reporting system for employees
We are proud of our employees and we want them to know that their voices are important in our company. We rely on our employees to help us by speaking up whenever any situation threatens our core values and ethics and our reputation. When an employee reports non-compliance and concerns, he or she provide us with the information necessary to remedy the situation. That is why we established a reporting system for our employees.
Additional channel of communication
The Securitas Integrity Line website (Securitas Hotline in the US and Canada, and Linea de Alerta in Mexico) is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is not meant to replace the responsibility of management, it is a complement. We encourage our employees to report their concerns to their supervisor, manager, local HR representative or local legal or divisional legal or risk function. We provide this additional channel of communication to allow our employees another way to voice their concerns.
Cases of non-compliance
All reported cases of non-compliance with Securitas' Values and Ethics, no matter what channel the report came through, are investigated and documented in a structured way. Securitas has a separate Group policy, Securitas integrity reporting policy, that for example sets out investigation responsibilities and response times, and informs about data protection rules.
Case statistics and details are reported to the Board of Directors' Audit Committee and to Group Management.
