Code of Ethics

Introduction

The following ethical code is essential to Linksight to guarantee the highest quality standards for the client company, the individual and the Linksight representative.

Our ethical code describes the ethical principles and standards of behaviours for all Linksight representatives. This ethical code applies to any Linksight coach, trainer or support team member.

Contract

At the start of a relationship, a clear contract is established between the client company, the individual and the Linksight representative to agree on the objectives of the relationship,  the means, the nature and limits of confidentiality, financial arrangements, and any other terms of the agreement or contract.

Quality Standards

Linksight professionals commit to excellence through continued personal, professional, and ethical development based on the latest developments and research in any related matter. They seek to make proper use of emerging and growing technological developments that are being used and ensure ethical standards apply to them. They seek to understand their client company and individual client expectations and operational aspects of their business. Linksight professionals are subject to regular individual or group supervision and also review progress in pairs.

Confidentiality

Linksight professionals maintain the strictest levels of confidentiality for all parties with regards to any records and information exchanged.

Conflict of interests

Linksight professionals strive to be aware and resolve any personal or professional conflict of interest or potential conflict of interest by working through the issue with relevant parties, seeking professional assistance, or suspending temporarily or ending the professional relationship when required.

Limitations

Linksight professionals recognize their personal limitations or circumstances that may impair, conflict or interfere with the relationships. They will then inform the relevant parties and may recommend other professionals. This may include suspending or terminating the relationship(s).

Integrity

Linksight professionals will not give any information that they know or believe to be misleading or false. This includes, but is not limited to, the process and its value, accreditation, certification or advice.
