Corruption, including corruption of public officials, dates from early in human history and countries have long had laws to punish their corrupt officials and those who pay them bribes.

2017 Ethisphere Convercent survey

Align business goals with your ethics and values, Ethisphere & Convercent

In spite of increased visibility and seniority, the survey shows that ethics and compliance officers continue to face significant challenges. Too many companies are behind the technology curve, wrestling a mountain of compliance data using legacy processes, outdated tools, and disconnected systems. As a result, ethics and compliance professionals are trapped in details, lacking the tools to engage with the data, be responsive to issues and trends, or gain the perspective required to tie ethics and values to the financial and strategic goals of the organization.

national audit office logoPublic officials are sometimes offered gifts and hospitality by external stakeholders which it is reasonable for them to accept. This can, however, present a risk of actual or perceived conflicts of interest, and undermine value for money or affect government’s reputation. While most, but not all, cases declared by officials appear on the face of it to be justifiable in the normal course of business, we found some weaknesses in the oversight and control of gifts and hospitality. This needs to be addressed by the Cabinet Office and departments.” - Amyas Morse, head of the National Audit Office, 9 February 2016
