EUR Holding BV (including all its subsidiary companies or LLCs) strives to instill a culture of integrity. The organisation aspires to satisfy the necessary conditions to encourage people within EUR Holding BV to abide by the set standards for ethical conduct, both individually and collectively. These set standards form the basis for the rules of ethical behaviour within EUR Holding BV.
But not only are the rules of the organisation important. The requested integrity of all involved with EUR Holding and her subsidiaries also stretches to compliance with general law & regulations, among which the (un)written rules governing a particular profession or occupation.
Furthermore, there is the issue of personal integrity, which concerns the general standards of behaviour, such as decency, honesty, and openness.
EUR Holding and her subsidiaries have defined the following Golden Rules of Ethical Conduct with the aim to establish a shared definition of ethical behaviour.
- Behave in accordance with generally accepted standards of decency.
- Adhere to academic codes and regulations, as well as general principles of law and regulations.
- Handle finances, company property, and information with the appropriate due care.
- Support colleagues as far as possible, and definitely avoid undermining them.
- Never (knowingly) make untrue statements about colleagues, students, or clients.
- Abide by the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity 2018.
- Determine the content and design of our contract teaching and research, in consultation with, but never exclusively by, clients of EUR Holding BV.
- Base the assessment of study performances on explicit criteria announced in advance.
- Act independently and in ways to prevent any conflicts of interest or undue influence.
There is a shared responsibility in observing the integrity policy:
- EUR Holding appoints confidential counsellors, provides a complaints procedure and sets up a independent complaints committee.
- Directors and board members of the subsidiaries monitor the way the integrity policy functions and effectuate continuing attention for the integrity policy within organisations connected to the subsidiary.
- Management shows their involvement in respect to integrity, as well in their own behaviour as in reaction tot the behaviour of others.
- Employees reflect on what the meaning of integrity is in their own working surroundings and participate actively in making it possible to have discussions about any dilemmas.
