Course Description

Acts of bribery and corrupt business practices are still an all to common part of business to business
activity in the UK and Worldwide. Inducements can range from small ‘facilitation payments’ to gifts
worth millions of pounds. They can come in many different forms and can sometimes be hard to
track down.

This course examines some of the reasons why bribery and corruption occur as well as providing an
overview of how common these practices are believed to be, before discussing how normal business
activities, such as gifts, hospitality, sponsorship and donations, can be manipulated to become
bribes.

It goes on to cover the legislation that is in place both in the UK and internationally and the severe
penalties that can be brought against someone found to be acting a corrupt way. It also looks at the
effects of bribery at a national level, including corruption in state-owned enterprises and
governments, worldwide.

Finally, on a more practical level, it will show you some of the ways management and employees can
reduce the risk of bribery and corruption in their organisations, particularly through anti-bribery and
anti-corruption policies.

Target Audience
