Our FunctionEight code of conduct sets out the standards which we expect to achieve in our relations with clients, suppliers, employees, colleagues, competitors and to the communities where we conduct business. In essence we strive to operate our business in an open, honest and fair manner both inside and outside our company. Our CSR policies include the offer of our services at reduced rates for nonprofit organizations and reducing our environmental impact through paperless initiatives and energy saving office environments.
“By always living our code of ethics we have been fortunate to receive the Caring Company award for 3 consecutive years now. We received recognition for this award through our association with the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation and received acknowledgement for volunteering, giving, mentoring, caring for the employee and caring for the environment. We also received the 2010 HSBC Living Business Award for recognition for outstanding employment practices within the SME market.”
In the beginning FunctionEight started by developing workflow systems for the construction sector that were entirely web based. The FunctionEight name was the result of a moment of creative genius and a few red wines. The F1 or the Function 1 key on a computer traditionally means “help”, and that was where the idea for our name began. We combined this idea with the number 8, which the Hong Kong and Chinese consider to be a lucky number. In the IT world F8 the Function 8 key is for starting up in "safe mode". Since that time, the name has stuck and we believe our proactive IT services mean you won’t ever need to use of the F8 key!
