At Bkonect not only we thrive on improving performance, but achieving this goal by doing the right thing.  

 

Our Core values

Values

We love everything transparent because transparency is the key to true integrity.

We love everything collaborative because collaboration is the key to true partnership.

We love everything professional because professionalism is the key to true quality.

Mission

At BKONECT we are driven by our desire to improve and empower our customer’s performance. Because each business is unique in its ecosystem and maturing dynamic, any solution we integrate use has to be equally unique and dynamic.

Our solutions adapt to the distinct nature of our customer’s businesses. Led by their organizational knowledge, we build solutions that are designed around the requirements of their unique operations, staff, and clients – solutions that are truly transformational by improving internal and external communications, enhancing performance and supporting the overall growth of their company.

Despite at times having to tackle tough decisions and make difficult choices, Bkonect is committed to doing the right thing. At times this will mean doing more than simply what the law requires. Merely because we can pursue a course of action does not mean we should do so

 

Trust and Credibility

The success of our business is dependent on the trust and confidence we earn from our employees, customers and shareholders. We gain credibility by adhering to our commitments, displaying honesty and integrity and reaching company goals solely through honorable conduct.

It is easy to say what we must do, but the proof is in our actions. Ultimately, we will be judged on what we do.

The Individual and Communication

We all deserve to work in an environment where we are treated with dignity and respect. Bkonect is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the full potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to our business success. We cannot afford to let anyone’s talents go to waste.

Bkonect is an equal employment/affirmative action employer and is committed to providing a workplace that is free of discrimination of all types from abusive, offensive or harassing behavior. Any employee who feels harassed or discriminated against should report the incident to his or her manager or to human resources.

At Bkonect everyone should feel comfortable to speak his or her mind, particularly with respect to ethics concerns. Managers have a responsibility to create an open and supportive environment where employees feel comfortable raising such questions/issues. We all benefit tremendously when employees exercise their power to prevent mistakes or wrongdoing by asking the right questions at the right times.

Bkonect will investigate all reported instances of questionable or unethical behavior. In every instance where improper behavior is found to have occurred, the company will take appropriate action. We will not tolerate retaliation against employees who raise genuine ethics concerns in good faith.

 

Giving Back

Bkonect is also committed into returning to our community. With our Pro Bono work we aim to empower those who are the most in need. Through our site and our outreach programs we aim to offer our resources to community organizations that require assistance in achieving laid out goals.

 

The Law

Bkonect’s commitment to integrity begins with complying with laws, rules and regulations where we do business. Further, each of us must have an understanding of the company policies, laws, rules and regulations that apply to our specific roles. If we are unsure of whether a contemplated action is permitted by law or Bkonect policy, we should seek the advice from the resource expert. We are responsible for preventing violations of law and for speaking up if we see possible violations.

Competition

We are dedicated to ethical, fair and vigorous competition. We will sell Bkonect services based on their merit, superior quality, functionality and competitive pricing. We will make independent pricing and marketing decisions and will not improperly cooperate or coordinate our activities with our competitors. We will not offer or solicit improper payments or gratuities in connection with the purchase or sales of goods or services, nor will we engage or assist in unlawful boycotts of particular customers.

Proprietary Information

It is important that we respect the property rights of others. We will not acquire or seek to acquire improper means of a competitor’s trade secrets or other proprietary or confidential information. We will not engage in unauthorized use, copying, distribution or alteration of software or other intellectual property.

Selective Disclosure

We will not selectively disclose (whether in one-on-one or small discussions, meetings, presentations, proposals or otherwise) any material nonpublic information with respect to Bkonect, its securities, business operations, plans, financial condition, results of operations or any development plan. We should be particularly vigilant when making presentations or proposals to customers to ensure that our presentations do not contain material nonpublic information.

 

Avoid Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of Interest

We must avoid any relationship or activity that might impair, or even appear to impair, our ability to make objective and fair decisions when performing our jobs. At times, we may be faced with situations where the business actions we take on behalf of Bkonect may conflict with our own personal or family interests. We owe a duty to Bkonect to advance its legitimate interests when the opportunity to do so arises. We must never use Bkonect’s property or information for personal gain or personally take for ourselves any opportunity that is discovered through our position with Bkonect.

Any activity that may be deemed as a Conflict of Interest will be reviewed internally to decide what the process will be. All Parties within Bkonect will ensure that such questions are reviewed before taking any action on it.

Gifts, Gratuities and Business Courtesies

Bkonect is committed to fair competition, solely on a merit of our services. We should avoid any actions that create a perception that favorable treatment of outside entities was sought, received or given in exchange for personal business courtesies. We will neither give nor accept business courtesies that constitute, or could reasonably be perceived as constituting, unfair business inducements that would violate law, regulation or policies of Bkonect or customers, or would cause embarrassment or reflect negatively on our reputation.

 

Metrics, Reporting and Record Keeping

We create, retain and dispose of our company records as part of our normal course of business in compliance with all Bkonect policies and guidelines, as well as all regulatory and legal requirements.

All corporate records must be true, accurate and complete, and company data must be promptly and accurately entered in our books in accordance with any applicable accounting principles.

We must not improperly influence, manipulate or mislead any unauthorized audit, nor interfere with any auditor engaged to perform an internal independent audit of Bkonect’s books, records, processes or internal controls.

 

Loyalty

Confidential and Proprietary Information

Integral to Bkonect’s business success is our protection of confidential company information, as well as nonpublic information entrusted to us by employees, customers and other business partners. Confidential and proprietary information includes such things as pricing and financial data, customer names/addresses or nonpublic information about other companies, including current or potential supplier and vendors. We will not disclose confidential and nonpublic information without a valid business purpose and proper authorization.
