Rules of Business Ethics

The Rules of Business Ethics provides a framework of reference for responsible conduct that all businesses must embrace and provides guidance on how to act on key ethical issues.

We all want to do the right thing for ourselves and our company. All employees of our company must comply with the rules, laws, the Rules of Business Ethics and all company regulations and take ownership of their actions. Wipelot Teknoloji employees are obliged to conduct themselves in line with the Rules of Business Ethics, various measures, laws, and regulations that run parallel to these rules, not to mention the company policy and regulations. We expect all our colleagues to abide by these principles and support each other on issues that require more awareness. All our managers lead the way in implementing the prescribed principles and guidelines, ensuring that the teams they work with understand and apply the rules of business ethics, and prepare a platform, if needed, where all legal and ethical issues can be easily discussed. In cases where we believe that the rules of business ethics are not being observed, we freely share our doubts with the Human Resources Department, particularly our managers.
