Preventing Corruption

Transparent, Honest Business Relationships

Corruption continues to be hot topic to this day. It can take many forms and occur anywhere at a company. For this reason, firms have tightened their anti-corruption guidelines and increased their focus on individual areas. To ensure honest, transparent business relationships, companies provide their employees with training commensurate with the level of risk they are exposed to.

You can use our ‘Corruption Prevention’ tutorial to teach your employees more about this global phenomenon. Here they learn what forms corruption takes, what the key laws are, and what consequences they face if violations occur. Your employees will also find out why the distinction between ‘public officials’ and ‘persons in the private sector’ is so critical and what they need to keep in mind at all times when selecting consultants and intermediaries. The program additionally provides them with information on how to deal properly with invitations and gifts and the particular risks and pitfalls they may encounter, using real-life examples to make the topic more accessible.
