We are proud to be featured in the 2021 Integrity Index by the British Chamber of Commerce Kenya. It features companies in Kenya, that are committed to business integrity, have strong integrity procedures and a track record of working with multinational organisations.
The Index is part of the Business Integrity Initiative (BII) pilot programme, which is run by BCCK in partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) and the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in Kenya. The BII provides practical guidance on navigating integrity challenges and provides a range of platforms to increase peer-to peer private sector engagement. It also works with the Kenyan authorities to promote improvements to local market conditions.
JW Seagon prides itself in providing an honest and transparent insurance broking service that our clients can depend upon. We are delighted to have been featured in the 2021 Integrity Index by the British Chamber of Commerce and for our efforts to be recognised in this way.
The Index features 28 companies that completed the nomination and self-assessment process. They are drawn from across 10 different sectors and vary in size from three to 3,000 employees. Companies were assessed on their track record of working with UK and International companies, as well as their documented policies and procedures.
The BCCK has also launched a report on the Index, which details the practical measures being taken by companies on the Index. These are all linked to the BII’s six integrity principles; proportionate procedures, top level commitment, risk assessment, due diligence, communication and training, monitoring and review.
Farida Abbas, CEO, BCCK says, “We are excited to recognise efforts that these companies are making to run ethical and trusted businesses. We hope that this Index will provide long term benefits to all the featured companies. A listing on the Index is external recognition of the efforts being made to run a trusted and ethical business. We aim to prove that ethical business pays. So, we will be signposting these businesses to any UK organisations looking to partner with Kenya-based companies.”
