People in need's work is governed by several policies and strategic documents followed by all employees and people who work for us.
PIN Code of Conduct
The aim of the PIN Code of Conduct is to provide clear guidance on the standards of behaviour required by all PIN staff. Any unacceptable behaviour breaching this Code may result in disciplinary action, including dismissal. Whilst recognising that laws and cultures differ considerably from one country to another, the Code is based on international legal standards, universal principles of codes of conduct and basic human rights.
PIN Policy on Ethical Conduct
People In Need (PIN) requests its staff and associates to maintain the highest ethical standards in their behaviour towards their team members and colleagues, towards external stakeholders of our programmes and particularly towards our beneficiaries. At the same time, PIN acknowledges that goods and services provided by our programmes can create a power imbalance, favouring those employed or engaged by PIN against programme beneficiaries; and PIN also acknowledges that this situation might be potentially exploited by PIN staff and associates to acquire bribes, payments, gifts, and/or sexual favours.
PIN Anti-corruption Policy
People In Need (PIN) recognizes that corruption represents one of the major threats for the credibility of non-governmental non-profit organizations in the eyes of beneficiaries, donors and general public, and importantly that corruption might negatively influence the quality of our services. Corruption violates basic rules of healthy competition and brings results that are neither oriented towards public welfare nor functional. In most countries, corruption is legally punishable.
PIN Conflict of Interest Policy
People In Need (PIN) recognizes that conflict of interest between PIN staff and associates on one side and PIN as organization on the other might negatively influence the organization’s performance and reputation and might also lead to various forms of corruptive behaviour. The aim of this Policy is to minimize such risks through clear definitions and examples of conflicts of interest, description of the standards of conduct and related responsibilities.
PIN Child Protection Policy
People In Need (PIN) recognises that especially in situations of poverty, humanitarian crisis and/or conflict, children can be extremely vulnerable. Therefore, PIN acknowledges as its fundamental duty to protect children engaged within its programmes and activities from any forms of abuse and exploitation.
