Speak-up @ ESW

At ESW, we recognise the importance of promoting an open culture, in which we can raise concerns about potential workplace misconduct or any concern where someone believes that a legal or ethical violation has or is occurring, in an open and transparent manner, without the fear of retaliation.

ESW does not tolerate any form of retaliation, and should you raise a concern in good faith you will be treated with respect and afforded the protection of relevant legislation.

Concerns can be raised by contacting HR, our Chief Risk & Sustainability Officer, our General Counsel or raised through our Speak Up at ESW Hotline here.
