Compliance & Ethics

House of HR complies with the highest standards when it comes to ethics, data policy and societal and environmental responsibilities. Taking up our accountability is both a matter of rules and conduct.  

When it comes to rules, House of HR complies with all regulations large and listed companies comply with. An evident example is the regulations concerning data privacy.  

But also: our conduct should reflect our ethical, societal and environmental ambitions. As our business in essence is a people’s business, it goes without saying that a strong Code of Conduct, business ethics and integrity when it comes to leading our holding is a quintessential element of our governance. 

An important element of our compliance and ethics policy deals with risk management. House of HR has a series of risk policies and standards dealing with elements such as conflict of interest, major incident policy and whistle blowing policy.  

In addition to House of HR’s compliance and ethics rules, every single operating company is responsible for their own policies relating to their sector and local legislation.

Data Protection Policy and Security

House of HR takes its responsibility as safeguard of personal data very seriously. IT risks are abundant and increasing. The risks of cyber-attacks, phishing, data fraud or theft, privacy and data protection could lead to serious operational disruption, reputational damage and legal penalties. 

To protect the Group against those treats, the implementation of a global information security strategy, with a strong visibility on all components of the IT environment is a key priority. 

Through a stronger security posture at Group level by further fine tuning the detection capabilities, aligning the defense strategy, and adding additional structural resilience capabilities to the companies’ platforms, this enables us to guarantee information security, data protection and compliance for all our core systems.
