Our Employee and Associates Code of Conduct company policy outlines our expectations regarding Employees and Associates (Representatives of the Prof Consulting Group Pty Ltd and related businesses) behaviour towards their colleagues, supervisors and overall organization.
We promote freedom of expression and open communication. But we expect each to follow our code of conduct. They should avoid offending, participating in serious disputes and disrupting the workplace. We also expect them to foster a well-organized, respectful and collaborative environment, whether working collectively or remotely. Our Code of Conduct further prohibits Employees and Associates from making disparaging comments about the employer and employees of the business on any social media platform and should know that they will be held responsible for what they say. Don’t use ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, or engage in any conduct that would not be acceptable in the Prof Consulting Group’s workplace. You should also show proper consideration for others privacy and for topics that may be considered objectionable or inflammatory (like religion or politics). If you are in a virtual world as an Prof. Consulting Group representative, please behave accordingly. We all appreciate respect.
This policy applies across the group regardless of employment agreement or rank.
