Respecting human rights and human dignity
In carrying out its mission, Leaders Excellence Partners ensures that personal integrity is respected.
Treating the individual who is being assessed with respect and without any form of discrimination, whether due to ethnicity, gender, language, religion, political or any other opinions, nationality, class, status or place of birth.
Respecting the moral values of the individual that underlie the above and respecting his/her autonomy.
Personal values or information may not be used to oppress or arbitrarily invade the individual’s privacy or to attack the individual’s character or reputation either during or after the mission carried out by Leaders Excellence Partners. It also means that the individual cannot be induced to alter their values. The respect of human rights and everything this entails applies prior to the mission and extends after it ends. Leaders Excellence Partners representatives will, where necessary, outline the purpose of the assessment and the general conditions of the business relationship.
Privacy and confidentiality
When Leaders Excellence Partners representatives begin an assessment, they enter into a confidential relationship with them and are bound by professional confidentiality. Therefore, they must ensure that the individual’s privacy is respected and must also abide by confidentiality undertakings. They thus comply with the basic principle that no-one may be compelled to reveal anything about themselves. However, the individual will be made aware that holding back information may be misinterpreted and may lead to inappropriate recommendations. Transparency in this area is therefore an asset for the individual concerned. If the individual being assessed is not the instructing party, Leaders Excellence Partners will only provide the instructing party with such information as is strictly necessary to help them understand the individual’s management methods in order to improve how the organisation operates and to ensure that the employer uses the individual to their full potential. Apart from the business relationship, Leaders Excellence Partners representatives undertake not to use what they know about the individual assessed in any way that could be damaging for him or her. The confidentiality undertaking is binding after the business contract comes to an end. Leaders Excellence Partners will ensure that any documents arising from its mission are at all times presented and archived in compliance with its confidentiality undertakings. However, it cannot compel the instructing party to do the same. Consequently, Leaders Excellence Partners bears no responsibility for any future use of these documents by the instructing party unless otherwise agreed in advance. Where information is used for training, research or publication purposes, absolute anonymity must be upheld by deleting any information likely to lead to the individuals concerned being identified directly or indirectly. Consent must be obtained before any data relating to the subject is recorded (manually or using audiovisual or computer-based methods). Leaders Excellence Partners representatives will offer to outline their methodology to the subject in an understandable and honest way prior to carrying out any interview and will also answer any questions the individual may have. Where the business relationship is with an instructing party other than the individual being assessed, the latter must be informed of all possible consequences of this relationship. Leaders Excellence Partners representatives will outline the various conditions and undertakings by which they are bound with regard to both parties.
Quality requirement and competence
In carrying out its missions, Leaders Excellence Partners upholds the highest quality standards, and monitors and incorporates the latest developments in various disciplines (such as psychology, cognitive science, neurobiology, management, strategy, organisational theory and practice, etc.) where applicable to the interviewing process. Leaders Excellence Partners endeavours to achieve excellence in all its dealings with clients.
Solving ethical issues
Leaders Excellence Partners managers must deal with and endeavour to find an appropriate solution to any ethical issues that may arise when working with a client.
Leaders Excellence Partners managers may turn down any mission, project or theoretical or technical function that is in opposition to its ethical principles.
