Going global may not mean just Business As Usual.
Until now, a comprehensive travel and entertainment policy and a business ethics code of conduct were all you needed to protect your company and your associates. In today’s expanded global economy, a simple policies and procedures manual will no longer suffice.
Each country has its own set of acceptable business practices, customs and regulations. US and other world governments now require companies to train your employees on proper ethical behavior and reinforce these same expectations for all related parties. Stricter adherence to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the anticipated UK Bribery Act will place a greater responsibility on companies doing business globally. Other governments will likely follow suit in this arena, possibly with even more strict requirements.
With a Global Ethics program you can ensure that your employees and related parties understand that doing business in China or India is different from business in Europe or the Americas. We tailor ethics training programs to accommodate the countries and type of business you will be practicing. Ultimately, mitigating serious potential penalties for failure to act in compliance with the regulations in the serious fashion they require.
