Mission Australia’s Commitment to a ‘Speak Up & Speak Out’ culture
- Mission Australia is committed to the highest standards of legal, ethical and moral behaviour.
- We are committed to acting fairly, ethically and with integrity in all that we do. In striving for the highest standards of conduct, we encourage our people, and those we interact with, to ‘Speak Up & Speak Out’ when they think an action or decision is not right, does not reflect our Values & Behaviours or is not in line with our Code of Conduct.
- Mission Australia recognises the importance of providing a supportive environment where people feel confident raising suspected or actual misconduct or concerns about unethical, illegal, inappropriate conduct, or other wrongdoing in the knowledge that action will be taken, and without fear of retaliation or retribution.
- Mission Australia is committed to maintaining a healthy ‘Speak Up & Speak Out’ culture where honesty, integrity and openness are encouraged, and legitimate concerns can be raised. This involves empowering people to Speak Up & Speak Out, encouraging them to give and receive feedback and complaints, and fostering an open corporate culture in which honesty, integrity and business ethics are part of everyday behaviour.
