The culture whereby treading the Management of European Reliance is governed by the non-negotiable principles on which it was built, namely ethics, honesty, consistency, transparency, impartiality and good management, has acknowledged that if the culture whereby the Company managed not governed by these values, the risk of corruption / fraud remains and can have devastating consequences for the Company and for the public.

This philosophy is constantly disseminates the staff through training aimed to clarify how it is applied in everyday practice of workers.

This philosophy becomes clear and partner sales networks throughout Greece through information seminars, online training and other activities as they reflect the face of the company to the customer.
