The Code addresses issues concerning staff relations, professional conduct, transparent accounting, health & safety, and the environment.
The Code specifically draws attention to various principles, most importantly equal treatment for all employees, without discrimination, and the provision of opportunities for professional development based on a merit system.
In the management of its business activities and relations, Sisal is guided by the principles of legality, fairness, integrity, transparency, efficiency, and openness. The company’s employees and associates are therefore required to observe these principles when handling business for the company and when dealing with the Government.
Sisal demands integrity from its employees, regardless of their level and role. Therefore, notwithstanding the fact that employees have the right to conduct private affairs outside those handled in the interests of the company, such right may not be exercised in competition with the company, or in a way that could be linked to illegal activities or that affects normal performance at work.
Also with a view to transparency and correctness, employees may not directly or indirectly pay for or offer gifts, material benefits, payments, or other benefits of any kind to third parties, public officials or private individuals.
The Board of Directors, through the revisions made to the Code introduced on 30 March 2010, also wanted to stress Sisal’s sensitivity towards protecting minors. Minors, who are often on the lookout for excitement, are most at risk of unhealthy gaming behavior. For this reason Sisal has instructed the recipients of the Organizational Model, and particularly its retail network, that under no circumstances are they to accept gaming requests from minors.
