The First Line of Defence: Get everyone on the ‘same page’
The need for anti-corruption and integrity training. Do you and your staff have a common understanding of how your organisation defines corruption, and what constitutes acceptable and unacceptable behaviour? Are they comfortable reporting suspected cases of fraud or corruption, and if so, do they know who to report it to? Do your managers understand the integral role they play in corruption prevention, and the various red flags to look for? Are they equipped to handle and manage cases of suspected fraud or corruption if reported to them?
Organisational corruption is not a question of a ‘few bad apples’, it is a management problem, and primarily a consequence of weak governance. Despite training and sensitisation being an organisation’s first line of defence, there is a tendency to overlook the more important ‘softer’ controls, in favour of the less effective but easier to implement ‘harder’ controls.
Use corruption prevention as your first line of defence
It’s more effective to prevent corruption than it is to detect it after the fact. Staff training and sensitisation workshops are the key to fraud and corruption prevention. We balance a pragmatic training approach with addressing key aspects of a regulatory environment. Our knowledge is built on our experience with developing and carrying out a number of global anti-corruption training and sensitisation workshops, our hands-on practical knowledge of fraud and corruption, and an extensive knowledge of international regulatory environments.
Our training workshops are customised to address your organisation’s specific requirements, and use an interactive approach designed to meet the learning styles of participants, regardless of their level or position within the organisation.
