To be a safe, supportive, and trusted workplace requires determination and a culture that promotes the ideals of a respectful company.
Being a trusted brand does not happen by accident and to attract and keep likeminded clients, supply partners and employees, is a conclusion that those who work with us come to in response to the experience from working with IPOS.
From the beginning of our journey in 2005, people have been the priority of the business and everything else has flowed from that one core principle. The relationships that exist reflect the integrity, openness, and respect across the organisation.
The purpose of this Code of Ethics is to underpin and reflect what happens on a day-to-day basis, here at IPOS and across all the relationship we have. The focus on integrity, openness, respect, and responsibility, reflects our belief that humanity and commerciality can comfortably co-exist.
It details our respect for people, and intolerance for any form of corruption, discrimination, harassment, and any forced labour by any partner we work with. The Code underpins equal opportunities, safety, and the wellbeing of our Team.
Principles do not bend, and this code ensures we hold ourselves to the highest standards that culminate in a stimulating and motivating environment that nurtures talent and promotes trust.
These are the highly principled standards that all of us expect from one another.
I recognise that we must invest in a strong culture and that this code forms an ongoing intent to support and encourage an ethical approach to all our relationships.
I know you will aspire to be the best you can and if IPOS can be part of your journey to enjoying a content and happy life, then IPOS will have achieved its vision of being the most rewarding agency to work for in the Northwest.
