3 Depressing Conclusions in E&Y’s Global Fraud Report – More Anti-Bribery Training, Internal Controls Required

I just finished reading Ernst & Young’s “Growing Beyond: A Place For Integrity”, the company’s 12th Global Fraud Survey. It’s pretty sobering, but I’m trying to find some glimmers of hope in it. Don’t get me wrong; the report is well done and well-written, but man, it’s shocking how little headway our efforts are making in preventing …

Research Shows That Business Ethics Training Can Impact Shareholder Value

Let’s get down to business, or should I say business ethics training. It’s been at the forefront of my mind recently, and not only because I work for a governance, risk and compliance company. I’ve seen so many articles in the news recently, about businesses behaving badly and making poor decisions that result in damaging consequences. The bottom …

Harassment Training 101: The 11 Most Common Mistakes Made by Sexual Harassment Victims

I recently read an article in the New York Times by female science writer Christie Aschwanden. At the beginning of the article she recants her first experience as an undergraduate biology major doing field work in Costa Rica. Her experience was appalling, but unfortunately, it seems it was not uncommon (see: current research findings on women scientists …

Why, After Mercedes, NCAA, Audi, Keurig, You Should Move Your Antitrust Training to The Front Burner

Let’s talk a little more about antitrust training. Since I wrote my first blog on it a few weeks ago, several more antitrust stories have hit the headlines. Just yesterday we discovered that China will fine Audi about $40 million for violating antitrust laws. Under the 6-year-old anti-monopoly regulation, the National Development and Reform Commission …

Crazy Statistics: Protect Your Company From The 234 Million Dollar Beast with Discrimination and Harassment Training

Do you want to hear some CRAZY numbers? Of course you do, because just like me, you read about harassment and discrimination settlements for fun. (We are weird people, and probably need to take up a different hobby, but I digress.) Here’s my first crazy statistic: Now I don’t know about you, but unless you’re Warren Buffett, $234 million isn’t …

Happy Birthday Dodd-Frank: The Whistleblower Program Milestones and How They’ve Impacted Business Ethics Training

Did you have some cake? Break out the balloons? While it’s hard to believe, it is true. Our little Dodd-Frank, signed into law by President Obama in 2010, is already four years old and about ready for pre-school. Although we in the ethics and compliance industry tend to focus pretty heavily on the whistleblower program that Dodd-Frank established, …

LinkedIn Compliance Settlement Highlights Why Wage and Hour Training Is So Critical

Last week, the Department of Labor announced that LinkedIn paid nearly $6 million ($3.3 million in back wages and $2.5 in liquidated damages) to 359 employees in back wages and damages for unpaid overtime, after an investigation by the Department’s Wage and Hour Division found that the company was in violation of the overtime and record-keeping provisions …

Civil War Era Is ‘Gone With The Wind’ Causing Companies To Question Need For FCA, Whistleblower Hotline Providers…

The Civil War era is my favorite part of American history. Every summer, my father would take my sister and me on “educational” vacations and when I was nine we went to Gettysburg. I’m not altogether sure if it’s the historical significance of the war that draws me to it, as much as the stories I heard when I was there, but either way …

Uber Plays Dirty – Why The Company Needs An App For Business Ethics Training

We have all experienced that moment where, while we don’t plan on drinking that much, one jack and coke leads to another…and another…and…another, and then he bar is suddenly transformed into an intense merry go round… and, well then it’s time to get in bed. So what do you do? Drive home? Well no, that is stupid and dangerous; you could potentially …
