The Anti Bribery Act 2010, which was amended in 2011, sets out the need to guard against bribery practices in the workplace. Most organisations will have an anti-bribery policy which highlights the responsibilities within the organisation for preventing corruption and reporting anything suspicious. It is important to make sure you have read your organisation’s policy so that you are aware of the issues that may be considered bribery.
Many organisations offer gifts and hospitality as a thank you to other organisations and individuals to promote good relationships. These must be proportionate and your policy may set out how to avoid gift giving and hospitality being seen as bribery.
If you need to write a policy for your organisation, a clearly written anti-bribery policy will set out the procedure for reporting anything suspicious. It will address the different types of bribery that may affect an organisation’s good reputation if allowed to happen, so that everyone in the organisation is clear on what is acceptable and what isn’t.
Our USecure anti-bribery course will help you to create a clear and concise policy. It is written from the cyber security perspective, and will help you spread the message to staff members and demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to good practice.
