Preventive measures are the first line of defense of a compliance management system. In this context, comprehensive training programs were carried out in the business year 2012/13 in all of the Group’s divisions. In order to achieve a training effect that is as broad-based as possible, e-learning systems are being increasingly used in addition to face-to-face training. For example, within the scope of a single web-based e-learning course, more than 4,500 of the Group’s employees received training specifically on antitrust law and more than 18,000 employees received training on the Code of Conduct; both courses included a final test.

After the training initiative 2012/13, the focus in the business year 2013/14 and in year under review was, on one hand, to give new employees a better understanding of compliance, particularly through e-learning courses and, on the other, to carry out face-to-face training sessions that were oriented toward specific target groups, such as general compliance training within the scope of executive training programs and specific training programs for employees in Sales and Purchasing. Additionally, compliance issues are brought to the attention of voestalpine employees on a regular basis by way of regular communications, particularly through employee magazines, poster campaigns, or at Group and divisional events.

Information about the subject of compliance is also available at the voestalpine AG website and employees have access to information on the Group intranet.
