Help & Advice
Questioning is part of preventing
In our daily work we may face situations from time to time which are not explicitly covered by the Roche Group Code of Conduct or the documents it refers to (e.g. directives, policies, guidelines). If we are unsure about the correct behaviour, we should ask ourselves the following questions:
- Is my behaviour legal?
- Is it in line with Roche’s Values?
- Does it comply with the Roche Group Code of Conduct?
- Could it have negative consequences for Roche or myself?
- Would I be comfortable if it was reported in a newspaper?
Often this will provide all the guidance we need. However, in case of doubts or uncertainties about the correct behaviour, seeking help and advice is the right thing to do.
By fostering a culture of openness to ask questions, Roche, first and foremost, aims to prevent non-compliant behaviour. Roche Line Managers are responsible for ensuring that all employees reporting to them receive the help and advice they need to comply with the Roche Group Code of Conduct.
Contacts to address uncertainties are: our Line Manager, the local Compliance Officer, the Chief Compliance Officer or the Roche Group Code of Conduct Help & Advice Line (RoCoCHAL).
