Compliance trainings

A crucial part of the Compliance system is the compliance related training. Trainings support the development of an ethical culture through out the entire organization. Trainings not only create awareness to the employees on the applicable legislation and the internal policies, but also offer solutions on daily business matters by detailing applicable case studies. The training objective is to help employees identify troublesome situations, to provide them with ways to get through them and in case of ambiguity to provide them with the proper escalation channel that will support them.
There are various compliance training topics the most important of which is the training on the MYTILINEOS code of conduct that includes all topics contained in the code with a deep analysis on each of them. There are two training formats, the in person training and the web based training. Although in person trainings encourage lively discussion with the instructor and may go beyond the training material, web based trainings allow the wide distribution of the material through out each country employees are located into and also provide the necessary flexibility to the employee to complete it at his/her own time plan. Training participation/ completion is tracked with the goal all employees invited to achieve completion.
