possible.

The e& Annual Compliance Day to mark International Anti-Corruption Day brings together compliance stakeholders and e& employees from across the business to listen and interact with industry leading experts on compliance, ethics and legal topics. In its sixth year, the event has featured renowned industry figures such as Michaela Ahlberg (former CCO of Telia), Shahzad Khan (Head of Ethics and Compliance, Mubadala Group) in 2021 and in 2022, Kristy Grant-Hart (Founder, Spark Compliance) and Christian Hunt (Founder, Human Risk), sharing their compliance experiences with our UAE employees and Compliance Partners. This year’s theme is how to build an ethical corporate culture that empowers our people to navigate tough decisions and make the right choices daily. Reinforcing the concept that ethical behaviour and ethical decision making is an active choice, not reserved for rare situations, but is a daily commitment with potentially long-term consequences.

Key goals and
objectives

The Annual Compliance Day event aligns with our mission statement, Making Good Possible, and the four strategic pillars: engaging employees, fostering a culture of accountability, pro-active risk management and creating a clear and consistent policy landscape. The event has been designed to build engagement among employees, encouraging them to actively participate and contribute to the company’s compliance culture, and creating a positive impact on the growth and success of e&. It also provides a platform to present and discuss potential risks and offer preventative measures to ensure e&’s strength and safety continue. The activities throughout the day will promote the culture of accountability by emphasising the importance of individual responsibility and ethical conduct centered around honesty, fairness, and transparency. To make the right choices, even when no one is watching. Finally, it will expand our reach to the business and enable us to proactively interact with e&’s employees to help them understand and familiarise themselves with new and existing policies and initiatives.
