Financial Integrity Course

Financial reporting plays a central role in corporate governance. The integrity of financial reports is paramount for any company. False or inaccurate reporting not only damages a company's reputation, but it can also lead to significant regulatory sanctions and litigation.

Therefore, it is vital to train employees on how to comply with financial controls in relation to revenues, expenses and assets. Maintaining the integrity of financial reports is a key obligation of all companies.

Our Financial Integrity e-learning module explains what each of the three key financial reports are and how employees can contribute towards maintaining their integrity.

Audience: all staff  |  Duration: 30 minutes  |  Format: e-learning module
