Bribery can often damage your business and your reputation. However, your business is not the only victim. The government and the society are affected more, and they are severely undermined by the weakened rule of law and damaged economic and social development. As such, governments are making anti-corruption programs an integral part of compliance. The OECD and its member countries see the core principle in fighting corruption rooted in the principle of free and fair competition. Each bribe offered or accepted compromises this principle.
This two-day training course is a practical look at corruption and current anti-corruption practices at a level that will provide both a clear definition and broad guidelines as to how this scourge can be fought. The in person seminar will discuss and detail issues and checklists to help make setting up your own anti-corruption program easier.
The seminar instructor will use a combination of prepared tuition, examples, discussions, exercises and case studies. For instance, the prominent Siemens case study that will be discussed will examine the corruption scandal and the steps that Siemens subsequently took to recover from this disaster.
This interactive course will offer participants the opportunity to share experiences and plan work within small working groups, providing practice in the application of the techniques and tools, and generating active participation.
