Corruption destroys businesses, communities, and peoples’ lives. Famous corporate ‘scandals’ have emerged but all have two key factors in common: a gullible approach to business which excludes ethics and accountability, and/or, a blatant determination to self-start, create and pursue personalised criminal behaviour and objectives through business. Added challenges for companies is to understand and measure practical examples of unethical behaviour and translate these into policy.

This new program draws together a range of key business issues and management skill-sets. Using an engaging and productive training method, with presentations, skills, interactive group activities, multi-directional discussions and case studies.

Participants will learn:

  • Precision explanations, definitions and key components of corruption in business

  • To develop anti-corruption policies (beyond basic ‘quality’ models)

  • How to ensure integrity in company activities

  • How to disseminate a range of company-wide responsibilities in a positive working environment

  • How to inform realistic and achievable Ethics and Compliance policy
