Greater take-up of IiI charter mark urgedFebruary 2015
More businesses should sign up to the Investing in Integrity (IiI) charter mark to reassure the public that they are trustworthy, Lord Mayor, Alderman Alan Yarrow has urged.
The Lord Mayor was addressing an audience at London’s Mansion House at the relaunch of the IiI charter mark.
Founded in 2012, the joint Institute of Business Ethics and Chartered Institute of Securities & Investment (CISI) initiative enables an organisation to reassure its key stakeholders that its business can demonstrate a commitment to address conduct and behaviour risk and act with integrity at all times.
Sam AlJayousi, group compliance manager at Carillion plc, which qualified for the mark last year, said: “IiI is a unique chartermark where it rigorously tests an organisation’s ethical standards through formal audit and assessment of the organisation’s own people and what they say about it. In the course of the process some 35 senior people were interviewed, more than 4,500 responded to an online survey, including people at more than 20 of Carillion operational sites across the globe.”
