Compliance at thyssenkrupp rothe erde

Reporting an incident

Ideally: the supervisor

An open communications culture is an important component of well-functioning compliance. Employees must be able to discuss faults openly, and most importantly, in a timely fashion. For this, their supervisor should always be the first port of call. As a Third Party, please contact your respective business partner at thyssenkrupp.
