Course Description

The most challenging aspect of anti-corruption compliance is ensuring that it is integrated into company operations and the overall business strategy. In the same way that security regulations are only effective if they are accepted, understood and implemented by all, anti-corruption procedures require employees to accept and appreciate their effectiveness in order to ensure appropriate implementation.

Although talented people with the best intentions design anti-corruption compliance procedures, they are up against audacious individuals who can be very creative at bypassing company rules. It is, therefore, necessary to question our way of addressing the issue on a regular basis. Compliance must evolve constantly to adapt to the ever-changing methods used by criminals.

Businesses are coming under increased scrutiny, both at home and abroad, to ensure that their domestic and foreign operations comply with anti-corruption and anti-bribery legislation. International trends towards tougher legislation and increased enforcement of anti-corruption laws internationally make non-compliance a real risk that companies must address as a business priority. There are significant financial, business, and reputational repercussions to not having an anti-corruption policy and effective compliance program in place. These could include criminal charges, hefty fines, and lost revenues. Corruption has widespread economic effects – such as the development and quality of infrastructure – and social effects – like the erosion of trust and threats to national security. 

Beyond the illegal exchange of money, corruption can include the agreement to exchange a bribe, hiding the information through bookkeeping, encouraging employees to seek out unethical agreements or preventing them from going to the authorities.

On a positive note, a shift in the cultural acceptance for corporate corruption is occurring as awareness for the issue spreads globally and corporations embrace a more level playing field on which to do business.

A robust ethics and compliance program is much more than just policies and documentation. Ethics and compliance must be ingrained in the company culture and fostered throughout a company’s processes and interactions. This workshop outlines strategies for creating and maintaining a strong ethics and compliance program that will keep companies safe from corruption and associated risks. 

The workshop is divided into 2 webinars of 4 CPE hrs each. This second webinar of the workshop discusses the following:

Key topics:

  • How to Establish a Robust Ethics & Compliance Program
  • How to integrate compliance and ethics in the organization's value
  • Compare examples of what makes a compliance program effective
  • Questions that need to be addressed and documented in order to have an effective and robust Ethics and Compliance Program in an organization.
