They are the practical representation of our status as a good corporate citizen, and they assist employees to understand and comply with our ethical standards and the legal requirements of the jurisdictions in which we conduct our business. They also give practical guidance on how this can be achieved.
Everyone in Vesuvius is required to complete an annual mandatory e-learning module for Anti-Bribery and Corruption. It is available in 22 of our functional languages.
We also provide a training for senior management on the overall compliance framework and process for policy and procedure implementation and monitoring. New senior leaders receive dedicated training from the Compliance Team. This induction contains training and guidance on all relevant Compliance policies and procedures.
4,917 employees, representing 99% of the targeted staff and 44% of the total full- and part-time employees, completed the 2022 Anti-Bribery and Corruption training.
