The Compliance system gives employees, business partners and third parties the opportunity to report irregular behaviour at any time.
Compliance concerns everyone, as everyone is directly or indirectly affected by violations. On the one hand legal violations — depending on the type and severity of the violation — are subject to personal criminal liability. On the other, violations of the compliance function cause material damage to the company and damage the reputation of Held GmbH in the eyes of the public. This impairs economic performance and thus the success of the company.
In addition to line managers, every employee and every Held business partner is called upon to report potential compliance violations and in doing so contribute to limiting the consequences of such violations and to avoid similar misconduct in the future.
