360Learning exists as part of a larger system, made up of people, values, and obligations. We take these values and obligations seriously, which is why we maintain the highest standards when it comes to social and environmental responsibility and ethical conduct.
Our Ethics, Social and Environmental Responsibility Charter describes how 360Learning and all 360Learners conduct business, and outlines the fundamental values we share as a group, wherever we operate in the world.
At 360Learning, we operate according to a clearly-defined set of values and commitments.
Our “Convexity” culture is at the heart of our operations, in our ongoing will to respect ethics and responsible commitments. Through the application of its values, Convexity guides us on a daily basis, in the way we work as a team, empowering each individual with a high degree of autonomy.
"Convexity allows us to set ambitious goals, to work in a flexible environment, to grow and to learn, in full transparency. We are determined to establish a culture of integrity, ethics and compliance within the 360Learning Group, knowing that our growth can only be sustainable if it is rooted in social, ethical and environmental responsibility.
As the Group's CEO, I will ensure that this line of conduct is upheld and that we mobilize appropriate means for our scale and activities, in order to prevent and detect breaches of the commitments made in our Charter.
These commitments are fundamental, which is why I expect each member of the management team and every 360Learner to ensure that these commitments are applied to all of our business and strategic decisions."
CEO and Co-founder
Convexity is not only what we believe to be the ideal framework for our day-to-day work; it is also our secret weapon, which enables us to achieve our greatest aspirations, and to completely rethink the way we learn from each other.
Convexity is made up of 13 pillars which are reflected in each of our values:
Transparency | Impact | Low Authority | Prosperity | Repeatable solutions
We incorporate the principles of social and environmental responsibility into our strategy to build sustainable growth and trusting partnerships with all stakeholders in our business.
Our corporate governance
We focus on performance and results and we are convinced that how, where and even when employees work is ultimately irrelevant. We distribute responsibility amongst all employees and avoid any form of micro-management. True leaders do not give orders from the top down, each individual must be in control of their own actions.
Our objectives are clearly defined, and as such, each individual is tasked with achieving them however they see fit, all whilst maintaining transparency, and showing respect to ethics as well as all stakeholders. We must question ourselves, analyze the impact our decisions have and identify what went wrong.
We follow the law and respect Human Rights
Our business is conducted in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, with integrity, respect for Human Rights and professional ethics.
We prohibit human trafficking and all forms of human slavery in accordance with the UN Additional Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons and the UN Slavery Convention.
We are committed to sustainable development, environmental responsibility and protecting our planet
We are aware of our impact on the environment and climate and the responsibility this entails.
We are aware that offering SaaS model products (via an online platform) and working from our offices requires a lot of energy. For these reasons, in early 2020, we joined Leaders for Climate Action and we are committed to reducing our emissions and contributing to collective carbon neutrality.
Means are being put in place to analyze our impact and to further limit our consumption of energy and natural resources. We are working on this by calculating our emissions, reducing them as much as possible and offsetting them through climate projects.
We strive to reduce our waste and consume resources sensibly and sparingly.
Benevolence | Personal Growth | “Your Life, Your Way” | Hiring up
We respect the rights and dignity of each of our employees, customers and partners, and oppose all forms of violence and abuse. We are committed to treating people with fairness, respect and dignity.
The health, safety and comfort of our employees is our primary concern
We are aware of the impact our actions can have, and we do not tolerate any form of abuse, bullying or harassment in the workplace.
These commitments are reflected in our HR policies which provide work-life balance, in a positive teamwork environment, where the values of trust, transparency and care for one another are central.
We expect our partners to also provide safe working conditions, to treat their employees with dignity and respect, and to act fairly.
If our partners do not meet these expectations, we reserve the right to reassess our relationship with them.
We support diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) from our recruitment processes, to our compensation policy, and with our choice of suppliers and business partners.
As an international company, our teams are made up of individuals from different cultures and backgrounds. We put our people first and are proud of our differences.
We offer an equal opportunity working environment and believe that learning should include everyone.
We believe that we are all responsible when it comes to creating an inclusive workplace that promotes equity, and attracts a diverse workforce.
We have strengthened our DE&I commitment by joining the “Mission French Tech Engagements Parité”. As part of this mission, we commit to providing practical training, gender-neutral job offers, equitable representation of women and men in the company, promoting female presence in our governance, and also provide support plans for employees returning from parental leave.
We are committed to closing the gender pay gap, increasing the number of women in leadership positions at 360Learning, and supporting the maternity, paternity and second parent leave that 360Learners need.
We are implementing means to measure our progress, such as tracking job applicants via an anonymous and voluntary survey at the time of application.
Convexity provides us with a framework to hone in on, and encourage the diverse skills, experiences and backgrounds that people bring with them when they join us. We use communication channels to create support communities and amplify minority voices.

If a 360Learner believes that they have a potential conflict of interest, they should speak to their coach or manager, and seek advice from the Legal Department on how to manage this potential conflict.
We can only grow with a zero tolerance policy towards corruption and influence peddling.
We do not tolerate any form of personal gain, corruption or influence peddling.
We implement policies and measures at our level to tackle such behavior.
