We believe our reputation together with the trust and confidence of those with whom we deal, to be amongst our most valuable assets. In order to keep this reputation and trust, we maintain the highest ethical standards in carrying out our business activities.

It is the policy of Operis to give equal opportunity in employment regardless of sex, sexual orientation, marital status, race, age, disability, religion or ethnic origin. This applies to recruitment, training, pay, conditions of employment, allocation of work and promotion.
The fight against money laundering is high on the agenda for both the government and the Financial Services Authority (FSA). The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 and the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 impose a duty on all firms involved in the provision of regulated and non-regulated financial services to report any suspected cases of money laundering to the Serious Organised Crime Agency, and it is a criminal offence not to do so.
As part of Operis’ requirement to comply with these regulations, we will be required to obtain identification of an officer or director of a customer company, which will be retained within the firm’s Know Your Customer (KYC) register.
Operis recognises that in pursuing its commercial interests it also has a responsibility, where appropriate and relevant, towards the wider environment. By exercising proper control over its activities, Operis will, where practical, promote the use of sustainable resources and discourage wasteful or damaging practices.
The Management of Operis recognises and accepts its responsibility to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of all its employees, contractors, visitors and those members of the public who may visit the firm’s offices. It is the company’s aim to promote, set and maintain the highest standards for health, safety and welfare matters.
It is the policy of Operis to conduct business in an honest way, and without the use of corrupt practices or acts of bribery to obtain an unfair advantage, in line with the UK Bribery Act 2010.
Operis participates in a range of activities throughout the year which are organised by charities and other good causes, for which proceeds of entry fees and alike go towards the nominated charities. Recent examples include fun runs and events arranged by the firm’s own Social Committee.
Operis recognises that some employees may wish to give something back to the community by volunteering their time. Each Operis employee can use 25 hours of their normal working time per calendar year to support charitable or local community causes.
Operis recognises that bullying, harassment and victimisation undermines an individual’s dignity and can have a negative impact on the provision of services. It is our policy therefore to treat seriously and sensitively all complaints relating to bullying and harassment.
