Ethics & Beliefs
Amoria Bond was founded on the belief that, whether on a corporate or a personal level, it is important to recognise that all actions have an impact. It is therefore necessary to ensure that the impact is a positive one by making careful decisions and selecting appropriate behaviours.
That belief is instilled into our culture through our Cultural Framework – this sets clear expectations for all employees, at all levels, to guide them in their everyday decision making. At a corporate level it guides all of our business interactions, strategies and decisions and forms the basis of our CSR policy. This policy sets out our commitments and then translates those into small achievable objectives, which are reviewed on an annual basis.
Commitments to Ethical Standards
Compliance with all laws: We expect Amoria Bond personnel and our clients/suppliers to comply with all national, European Union and International laws and regulations in relation to ethical employment and trading.
Exploitative child labour is eliminated: We believe giving young people opportunities in the working environment is crucial for their development, and would not wish to limit this; however, we believe it must be done subject to national laws on the employment of minors and in any event in a responsible way.
We expect that Amoria Bond, our clients and suppliers:
Employment is freely chosen: We expect that Amoria Bond, our clients and suppliers:
No discrimination is practised: Amoria Bond, our clients and suppliers must ensure that all workers are treated fairly and with dignity and respect; and that no worker receives less favourable treatment in respect of their employment on the grounds of race, gender, religion or belief, any disability, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation, age or the fact that they are a part time or fixed term worker, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
These commitments apply to recruitment of persons from outside the workplace and the treatment of contract workers.

- All workers must be informed and consulted in accordance with national laws

Regular employment entitlements
Barring legitimate contract engagements, we expect Amoria Bond, our clients and suppliers to ensure that any work undertaken is performed on the basis of a recognised engagement established through national law and practice.
We expect to meet obligations to consultants under labour or social security laws if applicable, and regulations arising from the regular engagement relationship should not be avoided.
Respect for the individual
We expect consultants to be treated with respect and dignity. Physical or verbal abuse or harassment on the grounds of race, gender, religion or belief, disability, marital status, national origin or age and any threats or other are expressly prohibited.
Amoria Bond will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. Our Directors and senior management shall take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources (training, etc.) and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation and within its supply chains.
Amoria Bond Actions
Amoria Bond has designed and implemented, firstly, a blanket policy which covers every area of our business and secondly, is further tailor-made to the specific business units / employees and temporary contractors that represent or are acting on behalf of Amoria Bond. Amoria Bond’s Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy will be issued outlining our parameters in respect of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking and will be reviewed and re-issued annually.
Employees, temporary contractors/consultants and any companies that we operate with on a subcontract / third party basis are strictly prohibited from engaging in any form of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking. A breach of these Policies by employees will be treated as grounds for disciplinary action which may result in a finding of gross misconduct. A breach of these Policies by temporary contractors or consultants will be treated as grounds for the termination of the contract held between Amoria Bond and that temporary contractor or consultant.
The success of the Amoria Bond’s Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy encourages employees and temporary contractors/consultants to report to our Legal Department anything suspicious in accordance with the procedures set out in Amoria Bond’s Policies. In respect of subcontractors and third parties, employees and temporary contractors/consultants are also encouraged to report any suspicious activity to our Legal Department, and Amoria Bond’s Board of Directors will support any individuals who make such report in good faith.
