Okapi Logistique's employees must conduct themselves with honesty and integrity beyond the test of legal legitimacy. They must avoid actions that compromise Okapi Logistique's legitimate interests or objectives.
Breaches of Conduct
It is every employee’s responsibility to report to their manager any breach of the Code of Conduct or any matter of serious concern. Employees who report incidents of misconduct will be granted the full protection of the Board of Okapi Logistique.
It is mandatory that any breach of the Code involving collusion, dishonesty or misuse of Company funds, assets or information (including the suppression of information) be reported immediately. If an employee feels unable to discuss a breach with their immediate manager or is unhappy with their manager’s response, then it can be raised with the Company Secretary or reported through Okapi Logistique's Speak Out Service. Any employee who reports a breach will be advised of the outcome of that matter. All other matters or inquiries relating to the Code, its meaning and operation, should be directed initially to his or her manager.
Speak Out Service
At Okapi Logistique we understand that on becoming aware of a breach of conduct, not all employees may feel comfortable discussing that misconduct publicly because of concerns about potential repercussions. We ensure that our employees are provided with various mechanisms to resolve any concerns arising from their employment.
To this end, the Speak Out Service is a confidential and anonymous way for all Okapi Logistique employees, contractors, consultants, clients and suppliers to report or raise concerns about misconduct at work through an independent externally operated body. The Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and employees, contractors, clients, consultants, and suppliers can contact the Service email, letter or call on an anonymous basis.
By offering this Service, Okapi Logistique is fostering an environment that affords appropriate protection from fear of retribution for those who wish to make a disclosure or air a concern.
