Assignment: Anti-Bribery

A global anti-bribery e-learning course with a difference

As a learner, you play the role of an executive in a successful global business, Parndale International PLC. After an initial briefing by your Assignment Contact, who provides you with resources in the form of short research and policy notes, you must deal with commonly encountered bribery situations at work by receiving, sending and taking part in emails, phone calls and Zoom meetings, all the while interacting with colleagues, bosses, customers and suppliers – any one of whom can send you and the company down the wrong path towards a bribery prosecution.

As you proceed through the assignments, you collect assignment points for making correct decisions, with bonus points available in some situations for superior judgment or speed of response.

Here are just some of the comments from the learners on our pilot programme.

What people say

 

“Unlike any other e-learning I had ever done. No tedious sequences of densely packed written "scenarios" with the odd picture or animation thrown in .. I was actually in these situations and dealing with them as if I were at work.”

 

 

 

“It didn't feel like an e-learning programme. Very innovative and great that they included Zoom meetings in the range of interactions - Very post-Covid!”

“Time flew...”

 

 

 

‘Despite its rather different structure, the course packed in all the key required learning points concerning the nature of bribery, how it occurs, what the red flags are, the legal and policy obligations (UKBA and FCPA) and the case on whistleblowing etc. was first-class and very realistic.”

Assignment: Anti-Bribery's course structure and content is built around asking and answering the following key questions:

 

  • What are bribery and corruption?
  • What kinds of wrongdoing are involved?
  • How might bribery and corruption occur in a business environment?
  • What red flags might indicate their existence to me?
  • What laws and penalties apply to bribery and corruption?
  • What organizational policies do I have to comply with?
  • What kinds of behaviours are appropriate for dealing effectively with bribery and corruption risks?

 

Spread over two core modules

[with a third assessment model] the answers to these questions reveal themselves across the following areas of risk:

  • Charitable donations and sponsorship
  • Gifts, hospitality and entertainment
  • Consultants and intermediaries
  • Facilitation payments
  • Internships
