Every member of staff at SEHA will be participating in this training. The course is part of SEHA's commitment to ‘Doing the Right Things…Always' and, making sure that this principle is embedded across all its business decisions and actions.
The Course is designed to enhance SEHA employees' understanding of four significant areas, namely Integrity, Standards of Conduct, Conflicts of Interest, and Fraud Control and Misconduct. This Course has been well received by SEHA employees, with staff appreciating the opportunity to brush up on various ethical practices.
The web-based nature of the course means that it can be taken at any time, anywhere in the world, and is thus highly convenient for SEHA's employees. All of SEHA's employees who have completed the course have been certified accordingly to acknowledge this.
Mr. Carl Stanifer, SEHA Group Chief Executive Officer said: “SEHA has proudly become the first healthcare company in the region to launch this type of Compliance and Ethics e-Training Course to a mass audience of more than 17,000 individuals. We are proud to be one of the leading Abu Dhabi-based companies with regard to the field of ethics business conduct, not merely in the health sphere.”
He continued: “We are thankful to the Corporate Compliance and Ethics Department of SEHA, and the technical support of Thomson Reuters, for creating this outstanding programme which explains how we must approach our work, our relationships, our decisions and our actions in an ethical manner. The fact that all employees working at SEHA including the Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer, Corporate Office and myself are taking this course shows the commitment of SEHA to corporate ethics.”
“This training is designed to ensure that all employees of SEHA are fully aware of and compliant with our business ethics. It will also help ensure that SEHA is fully compliant with all applicable laws and regulations. We view it as particularly important, as it reinforces our values, and enables our valued employees to make the correct ethical decisions within their everyday work.” He added
