Bribery Prevention

Create an effective bribery prevention awareness training programme

  • The law places serious obligations on all businesses – government guidance to the UK Bribery Act stresses the need for appropriate bribery prevention measures – that includes providing training to your employees.
  • Online training and staff reference booklets – offer a convenient and cost-effective way to train your staff, with secure records that enable you to demonstrate the steps your firm is taking to prevent bribery.

How do you protect your firm?

Make your staff aware of the risks

You need to clearly set out your firm’s position on bribery and give employees appropriate guidance on the right way to act in everyday work situations – over things like business gifts, working lunches and corporate hospitality.

Keep a record of training provided

If an employee commits a bribery offence in the course of their work – even inadvertently – your firm could be liable. The only defence is to show you have proportionate procedures in place – which must include training.

Online Anti-Bribery Training

Versions for the UK and for other jurisdictions – the online Bribery Prevention course is available in two different versions, each comprised of an interactive course and a separate recorded test that enables you to train your workforce with minimum disruption.
