Corporate governance is a fundamental aspect of the Power Group’s strategic and operational profile. It covers the roles and responsibilities of our Board of Directors, Executive Management and all employees. A commitment to good governance ensures that the correct checks and balances are in place to promote a culture of honesty, integrity, accountability and continuity.
Being ethical is the guiding principle for all governance
Our business practices are in line with relevant legislation and agreements. We believe that ethical behaviour will give us an inner peace, better quality of life and will contribute towards our long-term sustainability and growth.
Through our Ethics Committee and Performance Management System, regular and annual reviews are done to identify and address ethics issues.
Our Performance Management System includes dimensions such as leadership assessments, internal customer evaluations, external evaluations and culture and climate surveys.
Our Ethics Committee consists of employees from different disciplines and levels. As part of this we have established an ethics hotline with a whistle-blower facility. Clients, staff, suppliers and sub-contractors may utilise the hotline, with all incidents investigated by the Ethics Committee. Information sessions on the Hotline take place regularly, and information posters are displayed in all areas of the workplace.
Our group is committed to creating and maintaining an ethical working environment.
Our 100-year dream
The “100-year dream” is a commitment, a promise that Power’s leadership made in 2001 to the prolonged existence of the Group. It is an undertaking that the Group and its culture and ethics will continue to thrive long after the lives of those who currently constitute Power Construction and Power Developments.
As the executive chairman Graham Power says, “This commitment to uphold our purpose, our vision and our values guides us in our daily tasks. It reminds us, encourages us and motivates us to do everything in an “Unashamedly Ethical” way.”
Unashamedly Ethical was established in October 2006 by Graham Power. Disillusioned with the growing lack of ethics in business and government across the world, he launched the campaign with the purpose of encouraging businesses, organizations and individuals from all walks of life to publicly take a stand for ethics, values and clean living.
