Velcro Companies is dedicated to creating an ethical and thriving values-based culture. Such a culture is dependent on, among other things, every colleague’s confidence in their ability to raise concerns in a confidential, anonymous way without fear of reprisal.
If you are aware of, or suspect a breach of, Velcro Companies’ Code of Conduct or other corporate policies, or fraudulent activity or incidents of harassment against you or any other colleague, please report it immediately to your supervisor, manager or local human resources representative. If you do not feel comfortable reporting it to any of these people, you can use the anonymous Velcro Companies’ Compliance Hotline which is provided by a third-party service company. You can report your concerns anonymously and without fear of reprisal.
The hotline offers three easy ways for you to report issues anonymously. Both ways are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
1. Report concerns via the Internet at Compliance Hotline. Options are available to display the report form in your preferred language;
2. Report concerns via email at firstname.lastname@example.org; or
3. Report concerns by telephone, to a toll-free number:
