At Reference Technologies we are committed to operating our
business in a socially responsible and sustainable way.
Our corporate social responsibility policy aims to give our
stakeholders a clear understanding of our standards for business
conduct. The policy applies to all company employees,
governs our approach to all our activities, and includes:
- Corporate Governance
- General Business Principals
- Health and Safety
- Code of Ethics
We believe that, by working together, diverse people with
different experiences conceive some of the most innovative
ideas. Diversity hones our competitive edge and contributes to
our company's strength. Reference Technologies actively promotes
inclusiveness across the workplace, creating an environment
where each individual has an equal opportunity to achieve his or
her full potential, where human differences are valued, and
where employees feel respected and empowered in the decisions
that affect them. A diverse and skilled workforce is essential
to our success.
Health and Safety:
In the company's General Business Principles, we commit to
providing a healthy and safe work environment for all our
employees. To that end, our global health and safety vision and
policy reflect a proactive and preventative behavior-based
approach that integrates health and safety into our culture,
values and the way we do business. We recognize that in order to
protect our staff and other stakeholders from injury, illness
and other loss, we must value health and safety as much as our
other core values and make it an integral part of the solutions
we provide to our clients.
