Bribery & Kickbacks (FCPA & UKBA)
Bribery and kickbacks are one of the most common forms of corruption that organizations face. According to data from the International Monetary Fund, a shocking $1.5 trillion changes hands each year globally due to bribery. The financial penalties for FCPA or UKBA violations can be devastating to a business. One of the challenges that organizations need to address in the fight against bribery and kickbacks is that criminal behavior can appear, on the surface, to be surprisingly innocuous at times. pelotonRPM offers simulation exercises that prepare managers and leaders to handle challenging conversations that relate to bribery and kickbacks. These simulation exercises typically consist of three conversations, requiring the manager to gather information and understand the details of a questionable scenario and then relay the relevant facts to the appropriate people in the organization. A consistent takeaway from these simulations is that bribery and kickbacks can have a profoundly negative effect on an organization that extends well beyond legal liability.
