At Taurus, we believe acting ethically and responsibly is not only the right thing to do, but also the right thing to do for our business.
Our Taurus Global Code of Conduct (our “Code”) is our roadmap and compass for doing business the right way. Put simply, you do business the right way when you act ethically and consistently with our Values, our Code, our policies and the law.
Each of us is expected to embrace the principles of our Code and:
Our Code is at the center of everything we do. It reinforces our core Values and is the foundation of our strategic mission of Performance with Purpose – in fact, it is the purpose behind our performance.
It is your responsibility to ask questions and raise concerns when compliance issues arise.
The Code, by its very nature, cannot describe every possible situation that you might encounter in your daily work. If you cannot find an answer in the Code, or if you have questions on how to interpret the Code, seek guidance. Likewise, if you are aware of something that may be a violation of our Code, our policies or the law, you should speak up and report it so it can be addressed.
You have several channels to seek guidance or make a report:
Your immediate manager, next level manager or Human Resources manager: Your managers are excellent resources for guidance or concerns related to many company and job-specific policies and processes, work responsibilities, co-worker issues, discipline disputes, promotion opportunities, and issues related to the work environment.
Global Compliance or the Legal Counsel: For issues involving actual or potential Code or legal violations, you are encouraged to seek guidance or raise concerns to Global Compliance or the Legal Counsel. Some examples of these issues include:
In addition to the resources listed above, you can ask questions, raise concerns or make reports of suspected compliance violations by calling Speak Up, Taurus's ethics hotline.
'Speak Up' is a 24-hour, ethics hotline available to all Taurus employees, suppliers, consumers, contractors, subcontractors, and agents to ask questions or to raise concerns about
By phone call 1-780-809-8582. (4:30 pm- 07:50 am Voicemail) By email form (You will find this below)
To assist Taurus in investigating your report, you are encouraged to communicate all of the information you feel comfortable providing. The information will be kept confidential, except as needed to conduct a full, fair investigation. You may remain anonymous if you so choose, except where restricted by local law. Your identity, phone number or IP address will not be recorded or included in any report that is provided to Taurus. What matters is what is being reported, not who reports it.
Note: The Speak Up line is designed for specific types of calls, such as accounting, financial, auditing and bribery matters. Contact your Human Resources manager to report other issues.
Taurus is committed to protecting the rights of those individuals who report issues in good faith. Our company will not retaliate against a person who in good faith:
Retaliation against an employee for reporting an issue in good faith is itself is a violation of our Code. If you know or suspect that retaliation has occurred or is occurring, you should report it.
