COMBATING CORRUPTION – THE UNDERESTIMATED DANGER

Combating corruption is in itself preventing damage for an organization. This means that fighting corruption is part of the company’s  Resilience Strategy. The topic goes far beyond the usual “Code of Conduct” or the compliance guideline of a company. Because in many cases it is not about money or favours.

Anti-Corruption  always focuses on the behaviour of individuls.

A company can only survive if its substance is not damaged by “corruption”. The impact of a corruption incident can directly threaten the existence of a company. Effects of corruption can quickly be compared to an emergency/crisis from another cause of damage.
