Anti-bribery and corruption enforcement actions are rising globally. Organizations across every industry should be aware of the consequences and repercussions of corruption violations which can be swift and severe. Countless firms have been subject to major fines and other penalties that have had highly negative impact on their business and many individual employees have been prosecuted on criminal charges. White Collar Academy offers an anti-bribery and corruption training to ensure that your organization is compliant with modern international anti-corruption legislation.
Maintaining your reputation in business means everything and ensuring your organization is compliant with the terms of the FCPA, UK Bribery Act as well as other national legislation should be high on your list of priorities. Anti-bribery and anti-corruption measures should form a key part of your organization’s compliance strategy, and implementing a robust training solution to keep your employees aware of the threat of corruption is essential. Effective training on this topic will help employees at all levels understand their roles in protecting material non-public information and the implications and consequences of disregarding the bribery and corruption rules.
White Collar Academy has developed an ABC training specified to the needs of compliance professionals. The program covers a broad range of topics, including recent developments, stimulating debate, fostering networking, cross-fertilisation and the global exchange of experience.
