We conduct our business within the framework of laws, regulations and professional standards together with our policies and standards. However, we also acknowledge that these standards, laws, regulations and policies do not govern all types of behavior. As a result, we have developed this Code of Conduct for all Company employees. This Code is based on our values and it takes them to the next level—demonstrating our values in action and contributing to the Wolfersberger, LLC experience.
Each of us at Wolfersberger, LLC has an obligation to know and understand not only the guidelines contained in the Code, but also the values on which they are based. Knowing and understanding are not enough. We also have an obligation to comply with the letter and spirit of this Code and to help others do the same. As individuals, we are encouraged to raise any issues and concerns through appropriate channels.
While the Code provides a broad range of guidance about the standards of integrity and business conduct, no code can address every situation that individuals are likely to encounter. As a result, this Code is not a substitute for our responsibility and accountability to exercise good judgment and obtain guidance on proper business conduct. We are encouraged to seek additional guidance and support from those designated as responsible for business conduct matters. The strength in our organization is the strength in our collective knowledge and the sharing of that knowledge and experience.
Our core values define who we are. They are the fundamental beliefs of our company. They guide our actions and behavior. They influence the way we work with each other and the way we serve our clients.
Our clients and colleagues trust Wolfersberger, LLC based on our professional competence and integrity—qualities that reinforce our reputation. We uphold that reputation.
We seek to serve only those clients whom we are competent to serve, who value our service and who meet appropriate standards of legitimacy and integrity.
The Wolfersberger, LLC Code of Conduct defines how we should behave and conduct business in a wide range of settings and situations. It is the responsibility of each of us to follow the Code of Conduct and Company policies consistently and appropriately and help others to do so. When non-compliance with our Code of Conduct is reported or otherwise suspected, steps will be taken to investigate and, if appropriate, remedy the situation. We are encouraged to report and express our concerns and must do so fairly, honestly and respectfully. The Company is committed to protecting individuals against retaliation. Supervisors are responsible for addressing issues that are brought to their attention.
Those who violate the Code or Company policies and procedures will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal. Disciplinary measures will also apply to anyone who directs or approves infractions or has knowledge of them and does not promptly move to correct them.
