In our company, we believe that business ethics and social responsibility are the building blocks for success in network marketing, a business based on trust and cohesive relationships.
Headquartered in Malaysia, our company is a member of the Direct Selling Association in Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines. It is also a member of the Business Ethics Institute of Malaysia. To this extent, we are committed to instilling ethical business practices into each of our independent representatives.
We expect every IR to be prepared to behave with the highest ethical standards, respect, and professionalism, as it is clearly stated in our company’s Code of Ethics and Policies & Procedures. We consider professional marketing as the most important aspect when conducting business, and all our IRs are required to sign a commitment to professional and ethical marketing upon joining the business.
Using a business model that has at times been wrongly associated with unrelated, unsustainable marketing schemes and misunderstood due to a lack of legal framework in some countries, we strive to provide transparency and legitimacy to our operations no matter where we do business. In particular, every IR who joins our network is required to accept and acknowledge an Earnings and Income Disclaimer. The disclaimer specifically stipulates that the company does not endorse any get-rich-quick scheme, and that any commission or bonus earned is commensurate to the effort of each IR in promoting the business, products, and/or services of the company.
When presenting the business plan to new prospects, IRs are barred from making exaggerated claims on the income earned or guaranteeing the level of income a new prospect will earn by joining the business. We reiterate in our disclaimer and policies that each individual’s success depends on his or her background, dedication, desire, and motivation.
Our network compliance department monitors and addresses network behavior issues in over eighty jurisdictions. We manage complaints concerning any disputable or unethical business practices and conduct inquiry proceedings concerning the IRs involved in the alleged misconducts. Anyone who is found to have violated the company’s policies and procedures and/or code of ethics is subject to disciplinary proceedings, which may include suspension or termination.
To further reinforce positive network behavior and in line with the company’s corporate motto RYTHM (Raise Yourself To Help Mankind), our company has incorporated social responsibility into its disciplinary proceedings by requiring IRs who violated our rules to participate in social and charity work.
Aside from taking disciplinary actions to address misbehavior, we also recognize and reward good network behavior, motivating IRs to continue upholding the standard of ethical business practices.
Our IRs understand that practicing ethical marketing will improve the good standing of our company and network when promoting the business to new prospects. This will eventually pay off in the long run by earning trust and loyalty from our customers.
