Delivering transparency, accountability, and trust
Conducting business in the global marketplace presents a multitude of financial and operational challenges, including potential bribery and corruption activities, that can expose companies to severe fines and penalties as well as regulatory scrutiny. Failing to prevent bribery and corruption across relationships with customers, vendors, and other third parties can disrupt business operations and significantly affect employee morale and performance. These consequences could create long-term threats that put an organization's reputation, operations, and long-term viability at risk.
