These principles are underpinned by detailed guidelines, which are explained below.

PRINCIPLE I: Meeting the Client's Requirements
A JGA HR Consulting consultant shall regard the client's requirements and interests as paramount at all times.

Competence: JGA HR Consulting will only accept work that it is qualified to perform and in which the client can be served effectively.  JGA HR Consulting will not make any misleading claims and will provide references from other clients if requested.

Agreement on Deliverables and Fees: JGA HR Consulting shall agree formally with the client the scope, nature and deliverables of the services to be provided and the basis of remuneration, in advance of commencing work, any subsequent revisions will be subject to prior discussion and agreement with the client.

Confidentiality: JGA HR Consulting will hold all information concerning the affairs of clients in the strictest confidence and will not disclose proprietary information obtained during the course of assignments.

Non-poaching: JGA HR Consulting will not invite or encourage any employee, client for whom the JGA HR Consulting is working to consider alternative employment, unless it is the purpose of the assignment.

Due Care: JGA HR Consulting will make certain that advice, solutions and recommendations are based on thorough, impartial consideration and analysis of all available pertinent facts and relevant experience and are realistic, practicable and clearly understood by the client.

Communication: JGA HR Consulting will ensure that the client is kept fully informed about the progress of the assignment.  JGA HR Consulting will encourage and take note of any feedback provided by the client on the performance of its services.

Respect: JGA HR Consulting will act with courtesy and consideration toward the individuals contacted in the course of undertaking assignments.

PRINCIPLE 2: Integrity, Independence, Objectivity
JGA HR Consulting shall avoid any action or situation inconsistent with its professional obligations or which in any way might be seen to impair JGA HR Consultingís integrity. In formulating advice and recommendations JGA HR Consulting will be guided solely by its objective view of the client's best interests.

Disclosure: JGA HR Consulting will disclose at the earliest opportunity any special relationships, circumstances or business interests which might influence or impair, or could be seen by the client or others to influence or impair, the member's judgment or objectivity on a particular assignment.

Conflicts of interest:  JGA HR Consulting shall not serve a client under circumstances which are inconsistent with its professional obligations or which in any way might be seen to impair its integrity. Wherever a conflict or potential conflict of interest arises, JGA HR Consulting shall, as the circumstances require, withdraw from the assignment, remove the source of conflict or disclose and obtain the agreement of the parties concerned as to the performance or continuance of the engagement.

Inducements:  JGA HR Consulting shall not accept discounts, hospitality, commissions or gifts as an inducement to show favour to any person or body, nor attempt to obtain advantage by giving financial inducement to clients or client staff.  Payment for legitimate marketing activity may be made, and national laws will be respected.

Privacy of information:  JGA HR Consulting shall not use any confidential information about a client's affairs, elicited during the course of an assignment, for personal benefit or for the benefit of others outside the client organisation; there shall be no insider dealing or trading as legally defined or understood.

Objectivity:  JGA HR Consulting will advise the client of any significant reservations it may have about the clientís expectation of benefits from an engagement.  JGA HR Consulting will not indicate any short-term benefits at the expense of the long-term welfare of the client without advising the client of the implications.
