Code of Conduct

Personal Relationships


We approach business relationships with fellow teammates, customers, suppliers, contractors and consultants on the basis of fairness and objectivity. There may be situations in which a personal relationship has the potential to be a conflict, or the appearance of a conflict, with Convercent’s interests. See our conflict of interest policy for more information.

To ensure fairness and objectivity in our work, in any of the following situations, seek guidance by submitting a conflict of interest disclosure form.

Examples include:

  • An outside personal relationship with someone currently doing or seeking to do business with Convercent or a direct competitor
  • A relative working at Convercent, or works for a current or prospective customer
  • A romantic relationship with a Convercent teammate

 

Q&As

A: Not necessarily. Before making the recommendation, disclose your family relationship by using the conflict of interest disclosure form. Following this process enables us to appropriately manage the conflict.  The company could still be considered as a potential supplier but you will not be able to be involved in the supplier selection or supervising the work of that company.

A: Yes. If you are in a position of influence and you have a romantic relationship with a teammate, it could pose a conflict of interest. Submit a conflict of interest disclosure so that we can put the appropriate guardrails in place.

A: A spouse, partner, parent, in-laws (including mother, father, brother and sister in-laws), children, sibling, grandparent, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and any individual who lives with you, shares a home with, or who is otherwise financially dependent on you, or on whom you are financially dependent.

A: It depends on your role at Convercent and your partner’s role. We need more information to guide you through the situation. Disclose the situation using the conflict of interest disclosure form.
