The Code of Conduct applies to all employees worldwide, in business matters as well as with other employees, the public, the authorities and partners.
The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia has a zero tolerance policy towards all forms of harassment and discrimination in the working environment and expects the same from its external stakeholders, applicants and partner institutions worldwide. As a public foundation, Pro Helvetia has the responsibility and obligation to define clear rules, processes and measures, for internal and external cases. In the specific event of non-compliance, Pro Helvetia considers itself authorised to draw the appropriate consequences with regard to cooperation and the payment of support funds. Reports regarding harassment are taken seriously, treated confidentially and will be thoroughly pursued. A person who reports a relevant case to Pro Helvetia should not fear that he or she will be disadvantaged as a result.
