Speak up!

Speaking up is a vital part of NKT culture. If employees become aware of an actual or potential violation of the NKT Code of Conduct we encourage everyone to raise this with their respective Manager. If employees do not feel comfortable, or appropriate action is not being taken to address an issue, the Whistle-blower Hotline can be used. Our Ethics & Compliance department can also be contacted for further guidance at
NKT has a strict non-retaliation policy. Reports can be filed anonymously and no employee will suffer retaliation for raising a concern or reporting misconduct in good faith. Business partners and anyone else associated with NKT may also use the Whistle-blower Hotline to report actual or potential serious concerns.
