Fraud and corruption – the easy option for growth?
27. Mai 2015
Some employees continue to see compliance as a burden that can damage competitiveness. One-fifth of respondents, for example, state that following their ABAC policy very closely would harm competitiveness. But many of the key results tell a different story. Good compliance and growth appear to go hand in hand.
The results show that businesses that have experienced revenue growth in the last two years are more likely to be seen as ethical by their employees, not only at head office but also across operations in different countries. This correlation was observed across many of our key questions.
Policies and procedures are better too
The results also show that businesses that have experienced revenue growth in the last two years are more likely to have effective compliance policies and procedures in place. Compared with businesses that have experienced decreased revenue, respondents of companies that have experienced revenue growth are more likely to have policies in place, have penalties for misconduct, deliver training and support those reporting fraud or corruption.
