Ethics

Overview

Honesty and integrity are embedded in everything we do at Kinsale; upholding a culture of integrity and accountability is the foundation for our long-term success.

Ethics Policies

The framework of our ethics standards starts with our business culture and extends to our Code of Conduct and employee handbook. Our ethics standards apply to everyone – including executive management, part-time employees, and contractors. Abiding by these standards and procedures is a condition of continued employment with Kinsale.

To ensure awareness of our values, all employees and contractors must complete our Policy Certification Program either as a part of our onboarding process or on an annual basis. These include:

  • Anti-corruption & anti-bribery
  • Anti-nepotism
  • Anti-retaliation
  • Anti-trust laws
  • Competition & fair dealing practices
  • Confidential information
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Data privacy (employees, customers, consumers)
  • Equal employment opportunity
  • Gifts and entertainment
  • Information security
  • Insider trading
  • Intellectual property
  • Misconduct investigations
  • Protecting company assets
  • Social media
  • Workplace harassment
  • Workplace health and safety

Reporting Concerns

Kinsale encourages employees to report any activity that causes concern with respect to our ethics standards. Employees should report any illegal or unethical conduct, or regulatory compliance concerns by:

  • Contacting their manager, another manager, or a Human Resources representative;
  • Calling a toll-free number; or
  • Using the online portal.

We have an “anti-retaliation” policy for employees who report illegal or unethical behaviors to management. Any confirmed retaliation is treated with disciplinary action, which can include termination. In cases where an employee does not wish to be identified, any issues or concerns can be anonymously reported through an independent, third-party hotline.

The hotline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Reports can also be made anonymously through the online portal.
