Business Ethics

Our Code

To set out an ethical framework in which to operate, we have a Code of Business Ethics. Our code shows how all of us are expected to conduct business everywhere we operate. If local laws are stricter then we must follow them, if local laws are less strict then we must follow our code. We take this code seriously and expect all of our employees and our business partners to do the same.

We at HBK believe that how we conduct our business matters every bit as much as the results we achieve. Our Code of Business Ethics is an important guide for us, setting forth our ethical framework and values, and the resources we have to act with integrity and win – the right way.

Ben Bryson, President

Our values are there to underpin how we act and behave in everything we do


Our values and how we conduct our business matters to our people, our families and the many stakeholders who have an interest in our business. We have a proud history of acting with absolute integrity and a responsibility to pass onto future generations a business that is strong and successful.
