Vector Resourcing Anti-Bribery Policy
The UK Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1st July 2011, with significant implications for organisations incorporated or formed in the UK. We adhere to a policy which is in-line with this Act.
Vector Resourcing Ltd prohibits:
the offering, the giving, the solicitation or the acceptance of any bribe, whether cash or other inducement
to or from
any person or company, wherever they are situated and whether they are a public official or body or private person or company
any individual employee, agent or other person or body acting on Vector Resourcing’s behalf
in order to
gain any commercial, contractual or regulatory advantage for Vector Resourcing in a way which is unethical
or in order to
gain any personal advantage, pecuniary or otherwise, for the individual or anyone connected with the individual
Vector Resourcing recognises that market practice varies across the territories in which it does business and what is normal and acceptable in one place may not be in another. This policy prohibits any inducement which results in a personal gain or advantage to the recipient or any person or body associated with them, and which is intended to influence them to take action which may not be solely in the interests of Vector Resourcing or of the person or body employing them or whom they represent.
This policy is not meant to prohibit the following practices providing they are customary in a particular market, are proportionate and are properly recorded:
• normal and appropriate hospitality
• the giving of a ceremonial gift on a festival or at another special time
• the offer of resources to assist the person or body to make the decision more efficiently provided that they are supplied for that purpose only
Inevitably, decisions as to what is acceptable may not always be easy. If anyone is in doubt as to whether a potential act constitutes bribery, the matter should be referred to the Director with responsibility for this policy before proceeding.
The prevention, detection and reporting of bribery is the responsibility of all employees throughout Vector Resourcing. Employees or others can report confidentially any suspicion of bribery by emailing the Director directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
