The primary goal of Yembo’s Code of Conduct is to foster inclusive, collaborative and safe working conditions for all Yembo staff. As such, Yembo is committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all staff, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof). This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all Yembo staff, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
The Code of Conduct applies to all Yembo staff. This includes full-time, part-time and contractor staff employed at every seniority level. The Code of Conduct is to be upheld during all professional functions and events, including but not limited to business hours at the Yembo office, during Yembo-related extracurricular activities and events, while attending conferences and other professional events on behalf of Yembo, and while working remotely and communicating on Yembo resources with other staff. We expect all Yembo staff to abide by this Code of Conduct in all business matters -- online and in-person -- as well as in all one-on-one communications with customers and staff pertaining to Yembo business. This Code of Conduct also applies to unacceptable behavior occurring outside the scope of business activities when such behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of Yembo staff and clients.
Yembo thrives in its diversity - no matter what background, race, ethnicity, or gender we identify with. As such, employees should strive for respect, honesty, responsibility, and integrity while working together and representing Yembo.
We are focused on our company's mission and vision, and do not encourage the discussion of divisive issues that distract from our goals or interfere with our team's progress. While we respect each employee's own political and philosophical views, we ask that you not discuss them in company channels, e-mails, meetings, etc. as this may lead to heated discussions or arguments that could damage our team's dynamic and overall work relationships.
Language or conduct that is disrespectful, discriminatory, or derogatory towards Yembo employees and our clients in any format or mode of communication will not be tolerated and will be subject to immediate disciplinary action.
Yembo will conduct business honestly and ethically wherever operations are maintained. We strive to improve the quality of our services, products, and operations and will maintain a reputation for honesty, fairness, respect, responsibility, integrity, trust, and sound business judgment. All of our employees are also expected to adhere to high standards of business and personal integrity when representing Yembo.
We expect that employees will not knowingly misrepresent Yembo and will not speak on behalf of the company unless specifically authorized to do so. The confidentiality of trade secrets, proprietary information, and similar confidential commercially-sensitive information (i.e. financial or sales records/reports, marketing or business strategies/plans, product development, customer lists, patents, trademarks, etc.) about Yembo's operations, or that of our customers or partners, should be treated with discretion and only shared on a need-to-know basis.
A violation of our Code of Conduct can result in thorough investigation and discipline, up to and including termination of employment.
