Here we formulate our expectations as an employer and with them, set the standards for a professional work environment with each other. This provides orientation and security!
As employers, we set standards for the coexistence of many individuals. When this works well, long-lasting connections and strategic partnerships are often created. Very specific principles in this cooperation, which are regarded as a minimum standard, are defined in the Diversity Charter, or in our Code of Conduct. They combine the observance of the laws with the right to ethical behavior. adesta employees should be given the orientation, safety and help to fulfill their tasks to do the right thing. adesta customers have a promise - the promise of integrity, appreciation and trust.
The laws applicable to the Federal Republic of Germany, business guidelines and adesta’s internal guidelines may not be infringed. Here, the law serves as the cornerstone of ethical conduct. Within the framework of our activity as a personnel service provider, we observe the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
All people should be treated equally. Careful and considerate treatment is just as important as the respect of human rights. Intimidation, harassment and abusive language will not be tolerated in any form. Discrimination in all forms is prohibited, be it based on age, skin colour, disability, sex, marital status, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation or other irrelevant or unlawful characteristics.
The employees of adesta are assured of our compliance with all applicable labour laws. The hiring and/or promotion of employees take place without discrimination. Abusive language and unprofessional conduct among employees is prohibited. Mutual respect and respectful and considerate dealings with one another are paramount. This is also self-evident when it comes to dealing with clients, suppliers and other business partners.
Our customers receive complete, fair, prompt, exact and understandable contracts. The purchases, sales and contracts are subject to the sense of responsibility of the participants (that means, for example, that cash or other favours will never be demanded or accepted in connection with a contract, agreement or the purchase of services!).
A safe and healthy work environment for our employees has the highest priority. In the course of this, special measures will be observed to comply with environmental and labour laws. Our employees will therefore be obliged to avoid work-related accidents and to comply with the safety regulations of the workplace.
To guarantee fair competition, adesta is committed to complying with the fair trade and antitrust regulations accepted worldwide. These forbid, for example, price fixing, the exchange of information about tenders, respectively – documents, the sharing of customers, areas or markets and/or limitations on scheduling agreements. Upon joining the company, every employee becomes obligated to inform the management about any possibly cases of fraud they may encounter.
To prevent conflicts of interest, we must avoid any relationships or activities that objective decision making would not permit (e.g. hiring an acquaintance or relative into one’s own department or running for or accepting a political position without the prior consent of the company management). Furthermore, circumstances in which conflicts of interest arise or in which personal interests come in conflict with the interests of the company should be avoided.
All records will be produced, used, saved and stored according to statutory regulations. Pursuant to the right of data protection, confidential information will always be treated as confidential and the confidential information of others will not be misused. The company assets (capital, ideas, technology, customer data, etc.) should be protected against theft, unlawful appropriation and unauthorised use by every employee.
Furthermore, adesta respects the safeguarding of licenses, copyrights and the intellectual property of third parties, e.g. the copying of licensed computer software, the use of logos or trademarks of other companies, copyright protected print, video and audio materials. Computer and telecommunications systems should be protected against damage, modification, theft, fraudulent use and unauthorised access by every employee. Business and customer information may not be made public under any circumstances.
adesta renounces all forms of bribery and kickbacks. No bribes will be offered and paid on the side of the company, nor will any acceptance of such monies take place. Furthermore, no gifts or hospitality will be offered or accepted that could lead to or even create the appearance of unlawful manipulation. Additionally, official, government decisions may never be influenced by unlawful manipulation, such as through bribes for public servants or political parties. This also applies to donations to candidates that are running for a public or non-public office.
The effect that our daily work has on the environment should never be overlooked and therefore we will try to do our part to protect and improve the environment. Because: a respectful relationship with nature and the resources it provides is inalienable to us!
All employees are expected to immediately report all instances in which the performance or reputation of the company could be negatively influenced to the company management.
We don’t just want to be service providers for our applicants and our customers; we want to also assume responsibility to society and the community. In doing so, it’s not just about donating money or goods; it's also about the personal, active involvement of adesta employees. Furthermore at adesta, we understand responsibility to the community to be the attitude toward the way we passionately carry out our core business on a daily basis and make a profit. In doing this, we become able to provide benefits to society.
As a world-wide and value-oriented company, adesta is a cosignatory of the Diversity Charter.
All people have equal opportunities at adesta. In accordance with the constitutional law of the Federal Republic of Germany, no individual is disadvantaged or favored by adesta because of his or her gender, descent, race, language, homeland and origin, faith, religious or political opinions.
In the interests of the company, only the qualification of the person concerned is decisive for the filling of positions. Quotas or other targets, which would limit the selection of suitable persons as a whole, do not exist for the filling of positions for the aforementioned reasons.
We know the importance of social media and how public perception about our company, services, employees, applicants and customers is influenced by it. Employee presence in social networks (such as Facebook, Xing, Twitter, etc.) is thus respected and promoted.
adesta's management team has developed a guideline together with the specialist departments of personnel marketing, IT and law in order to provide the employees with important guidelines and tips for actions for the correct and responsible handling with these medias.
This directive deals with the following topics:
- Proper handling of confidential information
- Publication of content related to adesta or the respective client company
- Etiquette on the Internet
and is recognized by all employees when they begin at our company.
