Justin Bieber Does It Again – Time For Anti Bribery Training To Save The Day

Tsk tsk tsk. Just when I thought I was only going to mention him in one blog post this year, I now have the opportunity to write another. Someone has to do it! Justin Bieber is back in the spotlight and this time it isn’t Bieber who committed the crime (shocking), but one of members in his so-called entourage. According to The FCPA Blog, a supervisor …

Uber, Lyft Stop The Childish Shenanigans – Go Sit In Time Out And Reflect On Your Code Of Ethics Training

I initially planned to start this blog with a gung-ho confession and killer title – “Uber: Master Strategizer Or Master Espionage Artist?! Code Of Ethics Training Needed To Save The Day!” Super exciting, right? It just has an air of mystery and intrigue. I would definitely (emphasis on DEFINITELY) want to read that article. But, no, …

Sexual Harassment Training Can Help Mitigate The Risk Of Sexual Assaults On College Campuses

Let me begin this post by saying, War Eagle! (It is football season…). Football and silliness aside, I am an Auburn fan because I attended Auburn University. I graduated last year and sometimes I wish I could have done five years instead of the traditional four, I miss it that much (my parents’ wallet would disagree.) Sexual harassment is a serious …

Fact Or Fiction: Harassment Stories You Won’t Believe And How Sexual Harassment Training Can Keep You Out Of The Tabloids

Sometimes it’s hard to believe the stories of harassment that come across my desk. Today I read the story of Pavel Curda and Gesche Haas. While attending a networking event for investors and startups in Berlin last month, Haas met with Curda, a European angel investor. After a strictly business meeting at the event, Haas received the following …

5 CEO’s Who Should Be Forced To Retake Anti Bribery Training

In my last blog I wrote about billionaire Bernie Ecclestone bribing his way out of a bribery sentence; I’m still shaking my head on that one. Sadly, he is not the only mega rich businessman behaving badly, showing a distinct lack of ethics and setting a very poor example for employees. While there is always going to be a risk that someone who works …

My “Momma Bear” Is Coming Out: Cyber Bullies Prove Social Media Training Needs An Anti-Harassment Element

More than 50% of teens have experienced cyber bullying. Parents have historically looked to their children’s schools and local government to address the issue, but what about the social media sites which contribute to the continued existence of cyber bullying? Last week the world lost beloved comedian and actor, Robin Williams, to suicide. While …

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 recounts 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 …
