In the field of Ethics and Compliance and as well as in Data Privacy, training is a powerful tool for spreading the importance of Ethics and integrity throughout the Group. It is an absolute priority.

Priorities of the Ethics, Compliance & Privacy training

Whether the training is given in person or remotely, its content and format are adapted to each specific audience and tailored to the specific risks that Group Employees may encounter, based on their roles and geographic location.

A comprehensive learning tool

We aim to make integrity and respect a part of our corporate culture, no matter where our employees come from, their role, or their area of activity.

A wide array of operational learning goals

Understanding ethics as an added value | Become familiar with the Group Ethics, Compliance & Privacy systems - legal requirements, commitments, reference documents, tools, and resources | Identifying Group and individual ethics risks and issues | What to do when faced with an ethical dilemma? | Making our culture of integrity a part of everyday life.

Different kinds of training content

  • Ethics awareness modules are offered as e-learning courses to raise awareness among Group Employees and managers about the Group's ethical principles and practices, to help them integrate these principles into their day to day professional work, and to help them obtain the reflexes to adopt if they were to face ethical dilemmas.
  • Thematic programmes are also offered across the Group (ex: fraud and corruption prevention, personal data protection, etc.).
  • Specific & periodic awareness-raising campaigns (short videos, specific animations, etc.) make it possible to recall the Group's commitments and to anchor the reflexes to be adopted in the event of an ethical dilemma on various themes: whistleblowing, gifts and hospitality, corruption, human rights, etc.

Mandatory programmes

Taking into account the mapping of corruption risk carried out in each Group entity, a mapping of populations particularly exposed to corruption risk makes it possible to identify certain categories of employees (ex.: Senior Executives, Ethics & Compliance Officers, buyers, etc.) who have to complete an e-learning or in-person module that will help them understand the issues and risks they may encounter in order to better avoid them.

Specific reporting and monitoring procedures

Whether they are given in person or remotely, every training and awareness-raising event is subject to a follow-up. Indicators are put in place and the Group trainings calendar is distributed to all Group BUs and entities by the Ethics & Compliance Officers network.
