La Poste’s six values are at the heart of its identity, its commitments and its actions. In a changing environment, they guide its strategic choices.

Ethics are at the heart of our culture and values. Now more ever, our ethics and compliance policy reflects this requirement. It includes a human rights policy covering all the group’s activities in France and abroad, a code of conduct including the group’s anti-corruption policy, a whistleblowing system, a network of compliance officers and regular employee awareness campaigns. It’s not just a question of staying true to our DNA, it’s also an essential asset for our development, especially in markets such as local services and digital trust.

The postal workers' oath, a fouding principle

Regardless of their profession, status or grade, all new employees joining La Poste take an oath, undertaking to be conscientious, honest and act with integrity in the performance of their duties. Taking the oath is a formal act designed to guarantee the quality of the group’s services, protect customers’ interests and comply with ethical standards. The commitments made by postal workers have been adapted to meet the needs of the French population today, and now include respect for the confidentiality of electronic mail.
