Anti Bribery Policy Statement The Nicholls Colton Group Ltd is committed to conducting its business in an honest and ethical manner. The company takes a zero tolerance approach to bribery and corruption, acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all its business dealings. Every employee and individual acting on the company’s behalf is responsible for upholding the Company’s reputation. The Anti-Bribery policy document (HRGN7) provides full details.  The company does not tolerate any form of bribery, whether direct or indirect, by any employee or person acting for it or on its behalf. The board and senior managers are committed to implementing and enforcing appropriate systems to prevent or eliminate bribery in accordance with the Bribery Act 2010.  The purpose of the policy document is to set out the responsibilities of the company and those working for and on its behalf by providing information and guidance on recognizing and dealing with bribery and corruption issues.  A bribe is defined as: giving someone a financial or other advantage to encourage that person to perform their function or activity improperly or to reward that person for having already done so.  Corruption is defined as: the misuse of position or power for private gain.  Employees and others acting on behalf of the company are prohibited from making, asking for or receiving any bribe or unauthorized payment. However, the company does accept transparent, proportionate, reasonable and bona fide hospitality and promotional expenditure, whether given or received.  Any employee found offering or receiving bribes will be dealt with through the disciplinary process. Bribery is considered as gross misconduct. Bribery is also a criminal offence that could result in imprisonment or a fine for either the employee, or the company, or both.  The success of the company’s anti bribery and corruption measures depend on all employees and those acting for the company, playing their part in helping to prevent bribery. Therefore all employees are encouraged to report any suspected bribery as detailed in the policy to the company secretary. The company will support any individual who makes such a report in good faith. The Anti Bribery Policy has the full support of the Board of Directors and the Nicholls Colton Group Management Team.
