Holistic Ethical Organizational Culture at Gulf University for Science and Technology

Development of Clear Ethical Values

Management and supervision of compliance across the University are the responsibilities of the Office of Compliance and Ethics. It works to preserve institutional compliance by continuously observing all relevant laws, rules, best practices, and university policies. It also works to promote ethical principles and behavior among all university staff members.

Ethical Values-based Training

We understand that fostering an ethical culture calls for more than just outlining our ethical principles; it also necessitates active community education. As a result, we regularly train employees at all organizational levels using our ethical principles. These training sessions concentrate on real-world applications of our ethical principles in daily operations and decision- making, as well as how to deal with potential ethical conundrums.

With the help of our corporate governance courses, participants will learn how to reduce the danger of an ethical lapse in their firm. This will address how to develop a living, breathing code of ethics by looking at its various elements, how to give training across generations, and how to continuously reward ethical behavior and punish it when it occurs across all employee levels. Our goal is to equip participants with the skills necessary to lay the groundwork for an ethical workplace culture, comprehend the key elements of a code of ethics, and build policies that promote the use of hotlines and helplines while preventing whistleblower reprisal.

Office for Ethical Compliance

Our organizational structure, which includes an Office for Ethical Compliance, further demonstrates Gulf University for Science and Technology's commitment to upholding an ethical culture. The establishment, implementation, and oversight of policies and initiatives that support ethical conduct fall within the purview of this office, which is headed by a designated official with oversight over ethical issues throughout the institution.

The duties of the office include delivering ethics education, offering ethical counsel, running the ethics hotline, and looking into complaints of ethical transgressions. The office makes sure that everyone at Gulf University for Science and Technology feels supported in their efforts to act ethically and that ethical considerations are fundamental to our institution's decision-making processes.

Internal Reporting System and Grievance Procedure

To ensure that ethical problems can be reported and properly addressed, Gulf University for Science and Technology has put in place an internal reporting system and grievance mechanism. Anyone at Gulf University for Science and Technology may use this system, which is run by our office for ethical compliance, to anonymously report suspected ethical violations without worrying about facing consequences.

We also have a fair and open grievance process for staff members about employment- related issues. This technique gives employees a way to voice issues or grievances regarding their job in a way that avoids victimization, harassment, discrimination, or any other sort of unjust treatment.

Our institution's primary operations are integrated within Gulf University for Science and Technology's multifaceted approach to developing a comprehensive ethical corporate culture. We work to support and promote a culture where ethical behavior is the rule rather than the exception by creating clear ethical values, offering ethics-based training, creating an Office for Ethical Compliance, and putting in place a robust internal reporting system and grievance procedure.
