Protecting Your Company from the Global Corruption Pandemic

January 7, 2021
anti-corruption webinar

Organisations now, more than ever, become vulnerable and have to take actions now to protect themselves, reputation, employees and other stakeholders from bribery and corruption associated risks. The recently celebrated International Anti-Corruption Day drew attention to these sometimes hidden risks worldwide, and many organisation joined for this day to raise awareness of how to stop corruption inside and outside their organisations. That’s great news. But we at CRI Group and ABAC® believe that “saying NO TO CORRUPTION” is not enough and draw attention all-year-round on how organisations can take actions now to secure themselves and contribute towards businesses’ fight against bribery and corruption risks.

Even with the world under partial lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been no shortage of bribery and corruption cases. Did you know that £100 billion of dirty money passes through the UK systems and services every year? Or that £1.27 billion is lost annually to fraud, bribery and corruption in the NHS? Recently, the Airbus was fined £3.6 billion in February 2020 by courts in the UK, US and France for slush funds, “success payments” and lavish hospitality. Are you 100% sure what’s happening in your organisation or even department? Such risks could affect you any time and not only in healthcare or aviation industries – no industry, organisation or even country is immune to that. The above mentioned shocking figures indicate the need for organisations in public and private sectors and different industries to take more stringent actions to stop bribery and corruption.
