The issues of gifts, hospitality and bribery are increasingly complicated – especially for companies doing business in other countries. The danger of getting caught up in a corruption scandal is damaging, expensive and could be ultimately devastating. But when is a gift considered bribery? How can corruption, or even the perception of corruption, be avoided in business?
In this webinar we’ll highlight some recent bribery scandals, analyse how they could be avoided and take a deep dive into international anti-corruption laws. Most importantly, we’ll discuss how companies can safely conduct business around the world. We’ll include info on Transparency International’s recently released annual report on perceptions of corruption and bribery across the world and explain how it can form a critical part of a company’s bribery and corruption risk assessment.
This free, one-hour session will provide key background info on everything from the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in the US to the UK’s Bribery Act to the EU’s proposed anti-corruption legislation. If your company has any business in a foreign country, including any parts of its supply chain, you’ll want to join this one.
This webinar will feature:
- A basic understanding of anti-corruption legislation around the world
- Highlights of recent scandals – and how they could have avoided
- How you can manage your company’s gifts and hospitality policy
- How to prevent corruption in your business
- Future trends in anti-corruption laws
