Offering a proper training on “Ethics: Corruption, Antitrust, White Collar Fraud” is an essential component of a compliance programme, together with leadership, risk assessment, standards and controls. Covered areas should allow participants to cultivate the best reflexes when confronted with ethical dilemmas as well as raise or update their knowledge in different domains, in order to make bridges and gain in efficiency when managing compliance.
This session is about “Ethics: Corruption, Antitrust, White Collar Fraud”. It aims a) to update participants on the latest regulatory events and trends in those areas, in order to better assess risks, with the support of the legal department when necessary and b) understand better how Ethics and Compliance management can take place in a company, in order to be able to work proactively with the management to foster the company’s efficiency in ethics and compliance.
The whole cycle of 5 small-scale high-level courses covers compliance aspects of anti-corruption, antitrust, economic crime, data protection, privacy, export controls and economic santions, tax and accounting standards, customs requirements, etc.
All companies should provide this opportunity to their officers, employees and third parties on relevant laws, regulations, corporate policies and prohibited conduct. Anybody involved in one or more aspects of compliance has benefits of expanding its knowledge of other areas and reinforce its general skills about compliance. Sales peoples, particularly when involved in risky countries, can benefit from it, like any workforce confronted with complex situations involving conflicting values, beliefs and moral choices.
This training was designed for Belgian companies, by Belgian experts. It is also supported by prominent Belgian organizations like the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium, the Belgian Chambers and Transparency International Belgium.
