Ethics and Compliance
Mediahuis seeks to achieve the highest standards of business ethics and compliance in all our activities.
The key message of our Compliance Programme is that managers and employees across the Group should be ‘Doing the Right Thing’ at all times. This means not merely following the laws and policies that apply to their work, but also exercising good judgement to ensure that their actions are seen as fair and reasonable.
Code of Conduct
Our Mediahuis Ireland Code of Conduct sets out the standards that are expected of employees across the Group in a range of areas, including dealings with customers and suppliers, shareholders and the community in general.
Anti Bribery & Corruption
The Group also maintains detailed policies on a range of relevant areas, complementing the general requirements set out in the Code of Conduct – including with respect to anti-bribery and corruption. Each policy has a dedicated owner, and due diligence processes fall under the remit of our Internal Audit, Risk & Compliance department who monitor and report on instances of non-compliance and provide recommendations for remediation.
Employees across the Group are encouraged to raise a concern if any of our activities are being undertaken in a manner that may not be legal or ethical. Concerns can be raised with a member of management in the business where the employee works or with the Company Secretary. Our internal policies make clear that retaliation against any employee who raises a concern is prohibited.
