Our Ethical Business Principles
Our ethics are the moral standards we rely upon when we make a decision. Our ethics define what is right and wrong. Bumford’s remains a very conscientious business. Under the moral compass of our founder Chris Bumford, we continue to guide ourselves on the following principles
We are honest in all of our actions and always have been. We will always be truthful and upfront in all our dealing with our clients, staff and suppliers.
We maintain a high level of integrity. This is how we have earned the trust of others – customers, staff and suppliers. We will always try to do the right thing, and if mistakes happen we will admit fault and try and rectify the situation.
Keeping our Promises
Our word is very important and so we will stick by it. If we make a promise, we will stick to it and do exactly what we said we would.
We remain loyal to our customers, staff and suppliers. Our loyalty builds trust and reassurance.
We are and always have been very fair and just. We never have sought to exercise our power for an unfair advantage or use indecent methods to gain a competitive edge. We will never take undue advantage of another person’s difficulties and mistakes. We treat all people equally, with tolerance and acceptance of diversity. We are open-minded and will admit if and when we have made a mistake. We are fair to our customers, staff and suppliers.
