UK Bribery Act

Course Description

The UK Bribery Act has been described as groundbreaking in scope and reach, and as one of the world’s toughest and most comprehensive pieces of anti-bribery legislation.

This course explains the context and substance of the UK Bribery Act and key strategies for managing risks.

It explains what bribery is and supplies an overview of global trends in corruption.

The course then breaks down information about the international reach of the Act. It identifies the four bribery offences recognised by it – including the so-called ‘corporate offence’ under which organisations could be held accountable – and outlines who is at risk and what red flags to look out for.

The course finally addresses ways to manage risks, taking into account the UK Ministry of Justice’s six guidelines for adequate procedures, as well as issues such as business expenditures and facilitation payments.

Workplace Behaviours Compliance Training Course

Course Description

Workplace Behaviours – What’s in this course?

Changing workplace cultures by changing behaviours

The consequences of workplace bullying, discrimination and harassment have never been more widely known.

Bullying, discrimination and sexual harassment can harm individuals’ mental health and safety. They can lead to heavy costs for organisations, including reputational damage, compensation orders and high staff turnover.

What should you do if you see a colleague being bullied? Where does flirting stop and harassment begin? How do you prevent uncomfortable or unsafe situations from taking place?

Anyone can be a victim, perpetrator or bystander, and everyone has a role to play in creating a workplace culture where diversity is valued and individual dignity is respected.

This course provides tools for learners to recognise and prevent unacceptable behaviour, and outlines practical support for individuals who experience bullying, discrimination or sexual harassment.
