Communication Ethics

At Shrex Group, courtesy, tact and consideration should guide each employee in relationships with fellow workers and the public. It is mandatory that each employee in this organization show maximum respect to every other person in the organization and other contacts in a business context. The purpose of communication should be to help others and to make our business run as effectively as possible, thereby gaining the respect of our colleagues and customers.

  • Courtesy, honesty, and a spirit of helpfulness are important and guide the company’s dealings with employees and customers.
  • All communications with clients, seniors, colleagues and subordinates are expected to adhere to utmost professional standards and practices laid out in this document. Decorum leading to, during or after any form of communication including digital and physical meetings is to be maintained.
  • We do not discourage fraternizing between teams and we believe it helps foster better ideas however, at no point should the decorum and respect for an authority, senior, external stakeholder, teammate be compromised in business settings including the office, digital and physical meetings outside the office and any other official engagement or venue.
  • Differences of opinion should be handled privately and discreetly. Gossip and backbiting are strictly discouraged. Communicate directly with the person or persons involved to resolve differences.
  • Conservative criticism — that which will improve business by clarifying or instructing — should be welcomed when delivered with respect and tact. Destructive criticism — that which is designed to harm business or another person — is not to be practiced.
  • Employees should strive to maintain a civil work atmosphere at all times and refrain from shouting, yelling, using vulgarities or swearing at co-workers or customers.
  • The standard of Shrex Group is a work environment free from disparaging remarks about religion, ethnicity, sexual preferences, appearance and other non-work related matters. Each employee has the responsibility to foster an understanding of others’ differences in order to create an environment where those differences contribute to a better organization.
  • Inappropriate remarks based on any of the following are not tolerated and such behavior may result in immediate termination of employment: race, religion, ethnic origin, physical attributes, mental or physical disability, color, ancestry, marital status, pregnancy, medical condition, citizenship and/or age. Inappropriate remarks include those that treat a group of people in a uniform way, assign a behavior in a disparaging way, imply inferiority of a group, are supposedly funny at someone else’s expense, and/or cause embarrassment or distress to others based on comments about a particular group of people.
