Jensen Metal is a responsible company with an open culture in which all can feel secure and speak up if they experience potential violations of the legislation. As a start, employees are requested to speak to their immediate manager or a member of general management in these situations, but it is also possible to use the whistleblowing system.
Employees and other stakeholders can report (anonymously or non-anonymously) in the whistleblowing system about suspicion of potential violations of the legislation, including matters that may incur on Jensen Metal financial losses or damage Jensen Metal's reputation.
