ETHIC Intelligence’s private sector approach to certifying companies’ compliance programs is based on its understanding of anti-corruption compliance issues from both a regulatory and business standpoint. Compliance officers, legal directors, risk directors and others involved in anti-corruption compliance within companies must grapple with an ever more stringent regulatory context but also with the day-to-day realities of their employees in the field. Extortion solicitations, bribes paid by competitors and subsidiaries in countries where ‘bribing is the norm’ are only a few of the thorny situations faced by companies that must also answer to the tough legal requirements imposed by their home countries.
We strive to offer companies concrete solutions for the concrete compliance problems they face, particularly when operating in complex environments. We believe that, despite tough business and regulatory environments, it is not only possible but also rewarding to dramatically reduce the incidence of bribery and related corruption risk within companies, even in difficult countries.
