OVERVIEW

CLINIX established the Vuvuzela Hotline to provide all its stakeholders (including stakeholders – the public) with a mechanism whereby they could voice any suspicion of unethical behaviour totally anonymous, as an alternative to remain silent. This hotline is part of CLINIX’ commitment to zero-tolerance against dishonest and unethical behaviour within our Group.

Help Promote a Culture of Zero Tolerance

In many ways, stakeholders in an organization (employees, suppliers, consumers and executive management) are similar to the make-up of a soccer team (players, the management team, and coaching staff).     

 

Organizations often take the existence of ethics for granted in the workplace, just as soccer team stakeholders assume ‘fair play’ as a given.  History here, and abroad, has proven these assumptions to be wrong.  

 

For us at CLINIX, ethics is not a new term – it is one of our core values.  However, ethics is not only about intuitively making the right decision, but more often about the constant development of a system for ethical decision making and ethical empowerment.  Our goal is to ensure that the integrity of CLINIX stakeholders is always above reproach - a goal I am confident we all share. 

 

To this end, CLINIX has established an anonymous, independently managed Fraud Reporting Line (‘The Vuvuzela Hotline’) to provide its stakeholders with a mechanism whereby they could voice any suspicion of unethical behaviour, totally anonymous.  Many potential whistle-blowers worry that they may be victimised for voicing their concerns.  And, unless a ‘safe space’ is created where stakeholders can make reports in a safe and secure way, this fear will continue to be a problem.  Rest assured that The Vuvuzela Hotline is a totally anonymous, independently managed reporting facility specializing in the management of confidential and sensitive information. The Vuvuzela Call Centre is staffed with well-trained Hotline advisors who are skilled at helping you to report your concerns and information in a safe and effective manner. The Vuvuzela Hotline is part of CLINIX’ commitment to zero-tolerance against dishonest and unethical behaviour of any of our stakeholders.

 

Ultimately, our aim is for all CLINIX stakeholders to work together in building up a winning team – something worth cheering for.
