One of the most important aspects of any organisation is its culture. How do employees relate to one another? Is it a positive and enriching place to work? Do employees trust their colleagues, and look forward to working with them?
Unfortunately, an organisation that lacks proper controls against fraud, bribery and corruption and falls short on compliance standards is likely to have a negative office culture, as well. Employees who see their colleagues bending or even breaking rules will have a diminished view of their organisation as a whole, and won’t feel they can depend on their fellow employees to do the right thing.
That’s why ISO 37001:2016 training and certification is so important. First of all, ISO 37001:2016 isn’t just for the security team or executives. It involves the entire organisation. Staff learn how to recognise red flags of noncompliance for bribery and fraud, and how to report them. They also gain an understanding that the organisation won’t tolerate unethical behaviour.
Expert training from an accredited body
CRI Group is registered as a foremost ISO 37001:2016 Certification Body with the Emirates International Accreditation Centre (EIAC) Government of Dubai, UAE, and has formally launched its ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management Systems certification program.
Through CRI Group’s 3PRM-Certified™, the ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management System Certification will help your company, organisation or department to reduce risk of bribery and corruption by establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving your management system.
When everyone is on the same page and playing as a team, the organisation is stronger because employees trust one another to do the right thing. Those “grey areas” of rule-bending and non-compliance are no longer grey. The organisation culture dictates that only ethical behaviour and compliance with anti-bribery and anti-fraud standards will be acceptable.
When an organisation undertakes ISO 37001:2016 training from CRI’s ABAC Center of Excellence, employees understand that ethical behaviour is the norm, and anything outside of those bounds will be punished – perhaps with the loss of their job, or even prosecution.
The training helps establish an ethical culture by educating your employees on the following:
- What constitutes fraud, corruption, and bribery, and why these are so damaging to business
- How to identify red flags of fraud, corruption and bribery
- The process for reporting fraudulent and unethical acts
- The organisation’s zero-tolerance attitude toward unethical behaviour and willingness to terminate employees for breaches, and prosecute unethical acts
- The serious ramifications for committing fraud or bribery, the legal consequences, and the negative impact on one’s career
