GTECH customers are often judged by the highest standards of ethical conduct, and in turn, hold the Company to these same standards.
Consequently the most important suppliers to GTECH are expected to ascribe to those same high standards.
GTECH looks for suppliers to meet criteria of quality , cost (competitive pricing relative to other bids), delivery (sufficient size of the organization to meet GTECH’s needs and financial stability), and alignment with its corporate philosophy about corporate social responsibility.
GTECH utilizes a rigorous review of vendors consisting of cross-functional teams including quality, purchasing, finance, technology, and legal.
GTECH asks its vendors to share ethical concerns about environmental protection, respect of human rights, non-discrimination practices, and the workers’ right to fair wages.
