Responsible Business Principles
WorldStrides bases commercial relations with vendors and business partners on Responsible Business Principles to promote ethics and good governance. We aim to create and nurture mutually beneficial relationships while staying true to our company values. Our goal is to set a positive example within our industry by encouraging other organizations to embrace these principles and to share their own best practices.
Maintain transparent business partnerships When a decision is made choosing between possible vendors, WorldStrides first informs its business partners about the rules and criteria. Selection will be objective and consistent with these criteria.
Avoid creating economic dependence with business partners WorldStrides will be attentive to the proportion of sales generated by its business partners and their customer diversification to avoid creating unintentional economic dependence.
Refuse gratuities and excessive gifts from business partners WorldStrides will not grant or accept any acts of kindness, gratuities, or gifts with excessive value from its business partners.
Practice anti·corruption in all business transactions WorldStrides does not make payments to members of the government or any other public official to obtain favorable decisions or undue advantages when obtaining any contract. WorldStrides also pays attention to our financial transactions to detect possible money laundering by bad actors.
Avoid conflicts of interest between employees and the company We expect our employees to ensure that their activities and interests, including those of any family member or affiliated organization, do not conflict with WorldStrides’ best interests.
Maintain confidentiality of information and communication with business partners WorldStrides ensures that no confidential information about its business partners is revealed, transmitted, or used outside its business relationship with them. After relations have been terminated, confidential information continues to be confidential in accordance with any applicable agreements and legislation.
Respect intellectual property rights of partners WorldStrides respects the intellectual property rights enjoyed by its business partners. Unless there is an associated agreement, Worldstrides will not use their name, trademarks, or protected designs, and will prevent any illegal use of their software and their protected artistic or literary works.
