Sonepar’s Compliance Program
If an associate is uncomfortable sharing concerns with his/her line manager, an associate can contact Sonepar’s Human Resources Department (either at headquarter or local level) or the Group General Counsel’s Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If an associate does not wish to interact with Sonepar’s personnel, or if the person wishing to report is outside of Sonepar, a confidential whistleblower reporting system is available. It is provided by an independent third-party provider selected by Sonepar. Reports can be made at any time, 24 hours a day, in 20 different languages.
The platform can be accessed via the following link: www.sonepar.com/alert.
The reporting process is encrypted and password protected. Communication with the whistleblower takes place on this secured platform.
