New app helps employees combat bribery
With corruption still topping the list of FTSE350 company concerns, the Institute of Business Ethics has developed a timely app to help employees make the right decision in tricky situations.
The Say No Toolkit is a decision-making tool that can be used either as an App or via a website. It provides employees with immediate practical help in making the right decision across a variety of situations, such as when to accept a gift, when not to offer hospitality, what to say to avoid a facilitation payment and what to do if faced with a conflict of interest.
The IBE says the toolkit will help companies which are looking for ways to reinforce messages to employees about doing the right thing.
IBE’s director, Philippa Foster Back CBE OBE, commented: “Any one, at any level, in any organisation, can be offered a bribe. The SayNo Toolkit supports staff by giving them clear and easily accessible guidance about what can or cannot be accepted. Not only will the App provide an adequate procedure to combat bribery, it could also help to minimise the risks of corruption taking place.”
