At ISEC, we are committed to upholding our corporate social responsibility, which reflects our duty not only to our clients and shareholders, but also to the communities in which we operate. We believe that regular and transparent engagement with stakeholders is essential for building strong relationships, fostering trust, and improving business performance. As such, we engage with a wide range of stakeholders, including clients, governments, regulators, employees, suppliers, and the broader community.
Our goal is to be a responsible business that adheres to the highest ethical and professional standards. We have identified five key areas that comprise our corporate social responsibility initiatives:
Compliance & Business Ethics
At ISEC, we prioritise ethical business practices that align not only with legal requirements, but also with the best interests of the environment and the communities in which we operate. We have established a rigorous internal audit program that scrutinizes our practices, with a particular focus on finance, labor, safety, and the environment. We acknowledge the challenges of managing a large and dispersed workforce, and are therefore fully committed to maintaining this program to ensure that our practices remain robust and sustainable.
ISEC supports and encourages the reporting of any conduct that may be considered unethical, illegal or an act of serious wrongdoing. ISEC has adopted a Whistleblower Policy which sets out who is eligible for protection as a whistleblower, what sort of conduct or behaviour is reportable and how any concern about any suspected or actual unethical or unlawful behaviour can and should be raised.
At ISEC, we strive to enable our team members to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively manage the intricate relationships between people and the environment. We also seek to fulfill our clients’ desire to partner with service providers that are dedicated to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.
At the core of our Environment and Sustainability practices is a shared commitment among all members of the ISEC team to act with integrity and “do the right thing” for:
- Our customers
- Our employees
- Our suppliers
- The environment
- The broader Australian community
Our goal in the community is to make positive impact in the lives of the communities in which we operate in; one of the ways we aim to do this is through charitable donations towards organisations such as The Black Dog Institute.
ISEC is a long-standing supporter of The Black Dog Institute. We believe in taking a public stance for mental health and is committed to help in changing the dial on mental illness statistics for everyone. Our support contributes to expert researchers, developers, educators and innovators to continue and pioneer mental health programs for the 50% of Australians who will experience a mental illness in their lifetime.
At ISEC, we recognise and honour the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we live, work, and operate.
