To give our customers the best possible service, we make sure all our decisions can be taken independently of private interests or divided loyalties. We do this by actively avoiding or mitigating situations that create potential or perceived conflict of interest with our business activities.
Avoid situations that may compromise – or may appear to compromise – your decision making
Inform your manager of any potential conflicts of interest involving yourself or others
Don't give preferential treatment to personal contacts such as friends or family
A conflict of interest exists when financial or other personal incentives influence – or may appear to influence – an employee's professional performance.
My husband is part-owner of a company that is being considered as a supplier to Telia Company. Is this appropriate?
It is OK for family members or other close relations to be suppliers. However, you need to remove yourself from this conflict of interest situation by declaring the relationship and not participating in the procurement or execution processes.
My neighbor is a supplier to Telia and has invited me to stay at their summerhouse for the weekend. Can I go?
It is OK to go provided we aren't in the middle of negotiations with the supplier and provided you don't have a role that could create an impression of preferential treatment.
