Dublin, Dec. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Fighting Corruption and Unethical Practices" training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
This is a practical hands-on intensive course on ethics in business; and how to identify and prevent bribery, corruption, unethical conduct, and conflicts of interest.
In recent years, scores of economies, from Britain to Brazil have followed America's lead in tightening anti-bribery enforcement. Offences that once drew a mere reprimand now attract fines that run into hundreds of millions of dollars together with long prison terms for offending employees and managers.
Bribery directly damages your business and your reputation. However, your business is not the only victim. The wider losers are the government and the larger society, both of whom 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.
All firms, corporate or other need to have an effective compliance program wherever they operate and in whatever industry they operate.
This two-day/multi-session, intensive training course, is a practical look at corruption, current anti-corruption practices, and how to effectively comply at a level that equips participants with both a clear definition and guidelines as to how this scourge can be fought. This course also provides a set of detailed issues and checklists to help make setting up your own anti-corruption program easy to do.
The objectives of this training course is to provide all staff, irrespective of whether they work in the front-, middle- or back-office, with a sound foundation how to recognize corruption and comply with anti-corruption/compliance standards and practices. This training is provided in a practical "hands-on" manner that allows participants to implement what they have learned easily and effectively the minute they return to the office.
This course provides a complete structured package for learning in all main aspects of the subject of fighting corrupt practices. It will enable participants to prepare and manage the planning and implementation of the necessary control processes in the business that they work in irrespective of whether it is a bank/ financial institution or other type of firm.
