Dear colleagues and stakeholders,
It is indeed an honour to pen a few words for the inaugural SEGi Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy, a bold step by the company to position SEGi as an institution of high integrity and transparency.
In addition to providing the necessary information and guidance in recognising and dealing with potential bribery and corruption matters, this policy also serves as a moral compass for all in our day to day operations and business.
As one of the oldest and largest private higher education groups, SEGi takes pride in positioning itself as an ethical and responsible organisation not just in our four decades of existence, but for many more generations to come. The inauguration of this policy is certainly a positive step in reaffirming our organisational integrity for the benefit of our employees, business partners, other stakeholders as well as the business itself in the long-term.
Adherence to government policies has always been in our priority list. In fact, it is part of SEGi’s sustainability and corporate responsibility efforts to add value to our stakeholders and operate in a responsible and sustainable manner.
Ethics and accountability must become an integral part of our business DNA as this demonstrates the strength of our corporate governance and minimises risks of reputational crisis. As such, observing full compliance with the relevant policies and laws must be reflected in our daily operations, code of ethics and corporate values.
Accountability is a shared responsibility and an ethical choice. Regardless of the method taken to uphold accountability and transparency, all genuine concerns or reports raised shall be treated with utmost confidentiality under this policy.
I am deeply inspired by the Group’s commitment to incorporate the latest amendments in the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption laws in our business principles and codes of conduct. I would like to urge everyone to take a professional and personal stance in upholding the principles of equality, honesty and integrity.
The onus is on each one of us to lead by example. Together, we shall raise SEGi to greater heights.
