How we do business
Our Code of Business Conduct
Our Code of Business Conduct is at the heart of how we run our business, and is designed to help and protect us. It is important that we all understand the rules that we must follow, and the conduct that is expected of us, in order to look after our colleagues, do a great job for customers and protect our reputation.
Our Code means more than just following the law and our policies. It’s about using our Values and Leadership Behaviours to guide our conduct and decision-making so that we are always doing the right thing for each other and the business. You can find out more about these values and our Core Purpose here.
Bribery and corruption distort competitive markets, increase the cost of doing business and harm customer trust.
This Policy sets out our minimum expectations for complying with anti-bribery laws.
Gift and Entertainment Policy
As a business, our reputation is damaged even by allegations of bribery or corrupt practices.
This Policy provides guidance on appropriate gifts or entertainment and when the giving of gifts or entertainment should be avoided.
Protector Line allows colleagues and suppliers to raise concerns regarding misconduct at work. If a colleague does not feel able to speak to their manager or Personnel Manager, they can call Protector Line to report:
- any concerns about something at work they think might be unlawful, that breaches the Code or is against company policy.
- anything they think is a danger to colleagues, customers or the general public.
- any concerns they have that information about these things is being deliberately concealed.
Protector Line is completely confidential and run by an independent company for Tesco. Callers don’t have to give their name when they call. If callers do wish to provide their name, the Protector Line will be able to update them on the outcome of any investigation and will also be able to contact them for additional information if necessary.
