Bribery Prevention Course

Bribery laws are tightening up, creating a greater need than ever for compliance procedures relating to gifts, hospitality, expenses, donations, recruitment, client acquisition and partnerships.

Any substantial gifts or hospitality could be seen as a bribe including charitable donations. Even small favours that you think nothing of could be perceived as inducements. 

Our Bribery Prevention Course will help your employees to understand what bribery is, the relevant anti-bribery laws and your systems and procedures for bribery prevention.
