C as in compliance

What does compliance mean?

The term compliance originally comes from the American financial industry and stands for compliance with all legal requirements by companies.

Specifically, compliance describes a company's obligation to actively ensure that its operations are conducted in accordance with applicable rules and regulations.

Such requirements can come from state regulators, but they can also be specific rules of conduct that reflect corporate culture and corporate values.

In practice, compliance also means creating organizational arrangements in the organization to ensure compliance with these policies.

Compliance is therefore not an abstract concept, but a binding set of rules that affects all employees.


Compliance at helsa

As a company with over 70 years of history, we have never measured our success only in terms of economic goals, but we also feel committed to humane and ecological action. The binding observance of legal and voluntary rules was and is an integral part of our corporate policy.

Our "helsa Code of Conduct" is a clear guideline for securing legal and ethical action in all helsa plants worldwide.

In addition, we have developed a tool to ensure that ethical, social and environmental standards are implemented, continuously improved and continuously monitored in all plants: the "helsa Compliance and Safety Standard".

These are four important topics that serve as the basis for respect for each other: responsibility, commitment, sustainability and authenticity.

At helsa, we want to show respect and responsibility towards our employees and the environment and this is what our "helsa Compliance and Safety Standard" stands for.
