Resources of Anti Corruption
We have well-publicised resources available to all emloyees where help and advice can be sought. Especially, in Korea we have a website called CPMS(Compliance Management System) managed by Compliance Team to provide all employees located in Korea with counseling relating matters of Compliance and Ethics through guidelines/manuals upload and Q&A. CPMS is a window to ask trained counselors(including legal counsel) for ethic dilemma questions and get answers. Also, employees in other areas can reach Compliance Team via various methods such as visit, phone, mail, fax and e-mail instead of CPMS.
