Global Compliance Launches New Customisable Awareness Templates Optimised for the UK Bribery Act
New cost-effective templates speak the "Queen's English" to educate UK-based employees on how to use their organisations' whistleblower hotlines and comply with the UK Bribery Act.
- Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC (1888PressRelease) October 11, 2011 - For organisations looking for a cost-effective way to promote their ethics or whistleblower hotline programs, Global Compliance, the leading global provider of comprehensive, integrated ethics and compliance solutions, has expanded its range of semi-custom Awareness campaign templates to target UK-based employees and to reflect key elements of the UK Bribery Act. The new templates may be customised with client logo, programme name and proprietary hotline number and/or web address.
Whistleblower hotlines are the number one channel for fraud detection and are a critical tool to minimize risk from the UK Bribery Act. Employees and other stakeholders must be educated on how to report internally and what types of ethical and legal offences should be reported. While large, global organisations partner with Global Compliance's in-house communications team to develop bespoke campaigns, many others will benefit from semi-custom materials to get the results they require, while saving money and reducing implementation time.
"With the passage of the UK Bribery Act, organisations with employees in the UK must increase their efforts to detect abuses such as corruption, bribery and fraud-or face stiff legal penalties," explained David Trachtenberg, Chief Marketing Officer of Global Compliance. "With our customisable templates designed specifically for a UK audience, we enable organisations to raise awareness of their whistleblower hotline programs in a way that is engaging and culturally relevant." Trachtenberg continued, "While the topic is serious, we know that in order to educate, we must engage our customers' employees, agents and other stakeholders. Our new campaign templates 'speak their language' and are designed to create the critical dialogue necessary to highlight and uncover allegations before they make headlines and negatively impact the bottom line."
