Business ethics awareness and training
Observing ethical rules requires prior, specific and strong awareness raising on such topics.
It is therefore essential to provide ongoing training for employees. The aim of Legrand's training programmes is to ensure that employees likely to encounter risky situations will be thoroughly familiar with the rules of business ethics.
This also reduces the likelihood of competition law, anti-corruption laws, and anti-money laundering or export control regulations being breached in all of the Group's subsidiaries and entities.
Any infraction of Legrand's rules of ethics by an employee shall give rise to immediate sanctions.
Appropriate training tools
Business ethics training sessions are regularly organised for Group employees. The purpose is to help them detect and manage potentially sensitive situations relating to ethical problems in their entities.
Webcasts on various topics related to business ethics are also produced regularly for Ethics Officers, Compliance Officers, and various central functions of the Group.
Moreover, staff who are considered to be at risk must take an online training module on corruption prevention, supplemented by local training sessions. Communication tools (practical guides, presentations) have also been made available to ethics officers and compliance officers to facilitate their work in those areas.
