FCPA: Know Your Deal drops users into an immersive set of real-life scenarios to test their understanding, ability and knowledge to uncover the risk of bribery in their working life.
Bribery and corruption cases have ensnared some of the world's largest companies, biggest sporting bodies and most powerful politicians. The propensity for some people to act corruptly might never change, but the approach to training and compliance can. In FCPA: Know Your Deal, users face a set of realistic characters and scenarios from all walks of life, some of whom may be trying to offer, or ask for, a bribe. It is up to users to assess the risk of each situation and decide on the best course of action based on company procedures and the law. The course is fully compliant with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
Each of the six modules includes news stories relating to the topic, scenario based questions and opportunities to gain extra points by reading more on the topic.
The modules are:
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is a key piece of law that organizations must comply with. Understanding the law will help employees comply with its provisions. Failure to comply can result in criminal and civil penalties against companies as well as individual employees. People have been fined and even sentenced to significant prison time for violating the FCPA.
As well as being illegal, bribery can bring an organization into disrepute and tarnish its brand and image. It corrupts the industry and undermines customers. Employees have a responsibility to ensure they understand the law, their organization’s internal procedures, and know how to spot suspicious behaviors and red flags.
FCPA training teaches users the key things they need to know about the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and related laws, how to prevent bribery from occurring, and the warning signs to look out for.
While the FCPA itself may not require training per se, compliance with the act is necessary, and training will help staff comply with the act. Employees must have a clear understanding of what sorts of behaviours are prohibited by the act. The broad scope and far reach of the FCPA and other anti-bribery acts mean that it is prudent for organisations of all sizes that do business overseas or have foreign partners to offer anti-bribery training, including training around the FCPA, to their employees and anyone in the company that could be affected by bribery.
All types of users in an organisation, including management, consultants, agents, and partners, should receive FCPA training. Training should be tailored to be relevant for the specific user, so that each user will only take the training relevant to their industry and position.
Our FCPA course takes between 15-45 minutes depending on a user’s previous knowledge and training needs. Expert users are able to “test out”, allowing them to complete the course in less time.
