Managers and supervisors have an increased responsibility to report concerns and help ensure their teammates are heard
If you’re a manager or supervisor, you have an increased responsibility to educate your team on our Code, lead by example and uphold AppFolio’s high standards of ethical conduct. You should foster an open-door policy and encourage your teammates to come forward any time with ethical concerns.
If one of your employees reports a complaint to you in confidence, you must promptly consider the information and notify Human Resources or the Compliance & Ethics team. Failing to do so may result in disciplinary action.
Supervisors and managers should also regularly discuss compliance and ethics issues with their team members to help them spot issues in their everyday roles.
