These workshops provide guidance regarding ethically correct behavior and should be part of an organization’s standard training program for employees in high-risk areas. Simple “lecture-style” instruction, however, is not very effective in this respect.
The involvement and participation of the employees in the discussion regarding the values of an organization and in the resolution of conflicts increases the effectiveness of such training seminars. Beyond merely conveying knowledge, such workshops sensitize the parties involved to fraud and corruption risks. Within their “peer group”, the employees discuss values and ethically correct behavior in critical cases at eye level. Together, they find solutions, e.g. regarding the way that inappropriate offers and gifts are to be handled.
For the sensitization workshops, case studies are taken from the specific business environment or area of activity of the respective contracting organization.
