Business ethics standards of our employees are based on “ING Values and Behaviours” set out in the Orange Code. Compliance with those principles is one of the fundamental employee obligations.
The Orange Code consists of ING Values (we are honest; we are prudent/we apply common sense; we are responsible) and ING Behaviours (you take it on and make it happen; you help others to be successful; you are always a step ahead).
The Orange Code is an important element of our corporate culture. It is also applied in many banking processes, e.g. in the employee performance evaluation. Employees together with their supervisors set the actions through which the Orange Code is being implemented. Our values and behaviours are also part of a recruitment process. Employees can give each other Kudos. Kudos is our way of showing recognition. We use it every day as it is a convenient and good method of thanking others for the behaviours which are consistent with our Orange Code. Since the launch of the application (June 2016), we have given in total 100 thousand Kudos in Poland.
