Whistleblowing is a tool to report serious suspicions of misconduct or illegal activities. Any employee or external party can do so in good faith, anonymously, without fearing repercussion. If you see something worth reporting to us, speak up about it. The matters you should report may concern:
- bribes or improper gifts
- competition law infringements
- data protection law infringements
- other serious violations of legislation or Fazer Group's Code of Conduct (ethical principles)
Our whistleblowing service is encrypted and password-protected, and no metadata is saved, nor will IP addresses be tracked. Thus, identification of any anonymous whistle-blower is impossible. The anonymous whistle-blower gets an ID and a password before submitting their report which they can use to log in and read responses from the whistleblowing team, and even send messages back.
Whistleblowing reports are available to the Fazer whistleblowing team and other selected and trusted parties, when necessary. Cases are handled taking the interests of all the persons involved into account. Personal data is deleted or anonymised when the case is closed or no longer needed.
Any employee or external party can access the Whistleblowing report form here.
We treat people with equal respect and dignity based on the principle of non-discrimination. Every employee is to treat their colleagues with respect and fairness. We have no tolerance for physical, verbal, sexual or psychological harassment, bullying or abuse.
We promote the diversity of our workforce and all decisions regarding an individual employee shall be based on merit regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion or belief, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, marital or family status, or any other characteristic.
In addition, we recognise and respect our employees’ right to freedom of association and collective bargaining.
