WMF Group GmbH

Welcome to “commUNITYcate” – the WMF Group whistleblowing system

The WMF Group and its brands, WMF, Silit, Kaiser, Schaerer, and Hepp, look back on 160 successful years in business. A major factor of this success of the WMF Group is the integrity and reliability of its employees and managers.

A lack of sensitivity on the topic of compliance can significantly challenge the very foundations of a company. For the WMF Group, however, compliance is more than the simple observance of regulations. It is a part of our company management and corporate culture.

At WMF, open discourse about complicated topics is an integral part of this culture. Our whistleblowing system, “commUNITYcate”, aims to contribute to this discourse.
Employees and business partners of the WMF Group and external parties have the possibility of submitting a report with relation to the WMF Group confidentially and, if desired, anonymously. Your anonymity will be protected technologically by the system, provided that you yourself do not enter any data that allows for conclusions about your identity to be drawn. The provided information will, of course, be treated with strict confidentiality.

Any act of retaliation against the whistleblower will not be tolerated, and the whistleblower is afforded protection against any such acts, unless they have deliberately submitted a false report. Please keep in mind that a report can have adverse consequences for employees, business partners, and other affected parties. We therefore ask you only to submit information that you believe to be truthful to the best of your knowledge.

Please help us protect the values of the WMF Group and its employees. Thank you.
