At Haleon, we always do the right thing. However, there may be rare occasions when an employee or third party intentionally or unintentionally acts in a way that is not in line with our Code of Conduct Principles and our culture, our policies or the law. We are all responsible for speaking up, if we have a concern or reason to suspect that this has occurred. It can feel hard to speak up and raise a concern. But always remember that by not reporting suspected misconduct, you’re allowing inappropriate behaviour and actions to continue. This may harm our colleagues, our consumers, our company and our culture. In some cases, it may also lead to significant financial losses and serious reputational damage for Haleon.
All concerns raised will be reviewed in detail by colleagues in Ethics & Compliance, Legal and/or HR, and, if appropriate, a formal investigation may take place. We will ensure that your concern is addressed in the appropriate way. We may ask you to provide further information to enable us to fully investigate your concern. You should treat any information about the investigation as confidential. As the person who reported the concern, we will give you feedback at the end of the process, even if we are unable to share the outcome in detail for confidentiality or other reasons.
You should report your concerns directly to your line manager or a member of your local management team in the first instance. Alternatively, if you feel uncomfortable speaking up to your line manager or local management team, you may report your concerns to Ethics & Compliance, HR or Legal.
You can also use the Speak Up channels via telephone, web portal, email or mail. These channels are managed independently of Haleon and are available globally in multiple languages.
Always remember that by speaking up and raising concerns, you are doing the right thing.
