Everyone in our organization has the right to a safe, ethical workplace and that is why we will make every effort to prevent undesirable behaviour and unethical behaviour.
Working and studying safely at DAE is about desired manners and acting with integrity. It means dealing with each other with respect, care, responsibility and credibility and respecting the norms and values, rules and agreements within and for the organization. The strength of our organization is determined by the people who work and study there. That is why we believe the manners, integrity, communication and management methods are essential for the realization of a safe and honest work and study climate.
We will not only draw up policy, we also believe in the importance of paying attention to the implementation of this policy as it is an inseparable part of our professional conduct. The policy also provides line managers with insight into the framework and the options for effectively fulfilling their tasks and responsibilities in this area.
