Ethical Business Practices

Hands holding up earth

Our company is dedicated to its clients and employees. A core tenant of this dedication is our maintenance of the highest possible ethical standards worldwide. SENTEL’s Ethics and Compliance Program fosters the creation of an environment in which ethical business practices are at the forefront of every employee’s activities, and where there are resources readily available to ensure that staff always makes ethical decisions at the workplace.

SENTEL believes that a professional Ethics and Compliance Program is a sound business practice. It reassures our clients and fellow employees that we take the integrity of our business extremely seriously. Within SENTEL, we promote ethical and trustworthy behavior and actions from our executives, managers, and employees. By developing and enforcing a formal program, we share this message with the rest of the world.

After you get in touch with the Ethics & Compliance Office, SENTEL may pursue your concerns in several ways. SENTEL may simply provide you an advisory response if you have left contact information, request an investigation, or refer the concerns to the appropriate office. The duration of the investigation may range anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks depending on the nature of the inquiry.

SENTEL prohibits retaliation for utilizing the Ethics and Compliance Office or making SENTEL aware of any possible ethical concern. Employees that feel that someone is retaliating against you for using any of the options of the Ethics & Compliance program, contact a higher level employee in your chain of command, your Human Resources Department, the Ethics and Compliance Office, or the SENTEL ethics helpline for assistance.
