Informing, advising, training
METRO relies on an educational approach to anchor the business principles in the minds of employees. A document in the intranet, for example, explains the eight principles with the help of practical examples. Simply. Clearly. Intelligibly. In addition, we organise training sessions and offer advice.
We inform all our employees about the rules and standards that are relevant to their areas of work. We help employees to fulfil their obligations. We inject life into our compliance principles.
METRO continually checks for compliance with all the rules and standards. A dedicated Compliance Organisation analyses any weak points. Where necessary, the Compliance Officers develop concrete measures to prevent misconduct.
If situations are unclear, there are a number of people available for advice, including the local Compliance Officers. Anyone who notices a violation against the compliance rules can also use the METRO Compliance Reporting System. This option is available both to employees and to third parties, e.g. customers, suppliers and business partners. Reports are sent online and can be sent anonymously.
