Code of conduct
Why this exists
Creating this environment requires everyone to lead by example. Therefore, this Code of Conduct is to enable colleagues to evaluate their own and each other’s behaviour against a set of criteria that we believe will continue to nurture a productive, safe and comfortable environment. We ask that anyone joining our community – regardless of seniority, role or affiliation – understands and accepts our shared goals and values in order to maintain a safe, productive and positive community for all.
This Code of Conduct is a set of guidelines which outlines inclusive actions and behaviours, as well as things we do and don’t do to create a better environment for everyone – as individuals and as productive members of a family of companies.
What it entails
The Founders Family is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, skin colour, sex, gender identity or expression, age, disability (physical or mental), neuro(a)typicality, sexual orientation, and political affiliation.
Our differences are worth celebrating and make us stronger as a community. We will work together to strike the right balance – highlighting what makes us unique without isolating groups or individuals – through inclusive behaviour so that all members of our community thrive.
As members of the Founders Family we agree to follow these behaviour expectations in all professional activities (both offline and online, and within and beyond the office). Our values...
Be transparent but professional
Harassment, Personal Attacks, Bullying, Disruption and Discrimination
As a rule of thumb, if you wouldn’t be comfortable for your meeting or online conversation to be overheard, think twice before engaging.
Equally, we foster an environment where colleagues should feel empowered to highlight behaviour that goes against this Code of Conduct. We think these are helpful examples of language to use in the moment to address such behaviour.
