Blumont is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct contains general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics. Blumont requires that all employees, officers, and directors report any suspected violations promptly.

Blumont is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. Open communication of issues and concerns by all employees without fear of retribution or retaliation is vital to the successful implementation of Blumont’s ethics and compliance program, and the future success of Blumont. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred.

Although we encourage you to share your identity, there is always the opportunity for you to report anonymously if you choose to do so. In those situations, you are encouraged to use this hotline, hosted by a third party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. You are encouraged to use the hotline to submit reports relating to violations stated in our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, as well as asking for guidance related to policies and procedure and providing positive suggestions and stories.

Regardless of how you report, Blumont will do its best to keep sources of information pertaining to potential violations of the Code confidential. While we can’t guarantee complete confidentiality in every situation, we can guarantee that retaliation against you for making a good-faith report will not be tolerated. Retaliation is not only against our Code, it is against the law.

You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard. All reports of alleged non-compliance and violations will be responded to appropriately, including an investigation of the offense to prevent further similar offenses. Violations that involve illegal behavior will be reported to the appropriate government authorities. Blumont may discipline any employee, officer, or director whose conduct violates applicable laws, regulations, or basic tenets of the Code.

To Make a Report

After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After 5-6 business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.
