The process of implementing the system of ethics in Agora was launched in 2017, with the establishment of Ethics Committee. Ethics Committee held regular meetings and consultations and included representatives of Legal Council, Human Resources and Corporate Communications departments. Its activities were supplemented by the process of dialogue with employees.
DIALOGUE WITH EMPLOYEES
- As part of the dialogue with employees, already in 2017 we launched a survey among the employees of Agora S.A. asking them about the topics that should be covered by Agora’s Code of Ethics.
- In 2017 and 2018 workshops and meetings were held, with the employees, representatives of the trade unions, Employee Council and managers, with in-depth discussions of specific aspects. Another element of the project is a dedicated e-mail address for sending in comments and suggestions, and a special section on company intranet, with information about the project.
- Throughout March 2018, Management Board of Agora presented the project of Agora Code of Ethics and its progress to all employees of the group.
- The crowning element of employee involvement in the process were consultations and discussion sessions during which all major reservations were reviewed. The process also included consultations with the company’s managers and an expert company specializing in external whistleblowing systems.
