It is also essential for an adequate allocation of the company’s resources and necessary to support the continuous investment, indispensable to developing services capable of satisfying the client’s needs.

Statement of General Business Principles

This document reaffirms the general business principles which should guide Reis & Reis’ activities.

Reis & Reis is a new and decentralised company, with activities with a degree of freedom of action. However, the reputation of Reis & Reis is a common principle. Preserving the reputation of Reis & Reis is of fundamental importance. We are judged by how we act. Our reputation is protected if we act with honesty and integrity in all our activities. On all occasions, we do what we think is right within the business’s legitimate function.

Reis & Reis’ core values are honesty, integrity and respect for people. It firmly believes in the fundamental importance of promoting trust, openness, teamwork and professionalism, and pride in what it does.

The values underlying our Company status determine our principles, which apply to all transactions, regardless of their size, and describe the behaviour expected of all employees in the conduct of their professionalism.

In turn, applying these principles at Reis & Reis is supported by procedures designed to ensure that employees understand the principles and act by them. We recognise that it is vital that our behaviour is by our intentions.

All the elements of this structure, that is, the values, the principles and the respective procedures, are necessary.

Reis & Reis recognises the existence of five main areas of responsibility:

  • To partners – Protecting the investment of its partners and ensuring adequate levels of profitability.

It is recognised that business success depends on the full contribution of all employees.
  • To those with whom it does business seeking a mutually beneficial relationship with suppliers and in joint ventures, and in doing so, to promote the application of these principles.
