OLIVE GROUP'S CORE PRINCIPLES
Olive Group aims for the highest ethical standards and to work with integrity in everything we do. Our Code of Ethics has been created for us by leading constitutional and human rights lawyers, and incorporates the Voluntary Principles. Our standards are monitored by an Ethics Committee, which has the right of veto over any project we may undertake, and which works closely with the UK's Foreign & Commonwealth Office. We are a founding member of the British Association of Private Security Companies (BAPSC) and members of the International Peace Operations Association (IPOA) and the UK's Defence Manufacturers' Association (DMA).
Olive Group is proud of its record as an innovator, constantly questioning prevailing industry standards and always seeking to find better solutions for our clients. We have pioneered the integration of technology into a number of risk mitigation strategies, as well as developing proprietary systems where off-the-shelf solutions do not meet the standards we demand.
Our people are our most important assets. We ensure that we recruit, retain and continuously develop the skills of our employees.
Quality and Standards
Since its inception, Olive Group has been committed to uncompromising quality. The experience we have built up and the breadth of our capabilities is second to none. Our integrated systems of risk mitigation and management offer clients an unparalleled standard of performance. We take the greatest care in managing our relationships with our clients, and we have our own Projects Office, responsible for ensuring that PRINCE2 methodologies are followed on all projects we undertake.
Our reputation, like the reputation of our clients, is of supreme importance to us.
Olive Group is ISO 9001:2000 Registered Firm (UK).
