Workshop will Explore Bribery and Corruption in UK Business

Bribery and corruption will be the topic of a workshop to be run by the University of Worcester's Centre for Ethical Leadership next month.

The workshop, on May 27, is aimed at business leaders concerned with the ethical and legal implications of bribery and corruption.

All UK organisations are covered by the Bribery Act 2010, which requires companies to demonstrate, not just that they haven’t been involved in bribery, but that they have procedures in place to prevent it.

Rob Sykes, Director of the Centre for Ethical Leadership, said: “The workshop aims to investigate corporate social responsibility, with particular focus on bribery and corruption, and develop awareness of ethical, legal and cultural issues.”

Workshop participants will analyse a case study on bribery and corruption and interact with actors in related scenarios.

It will be delivered by Mr Sykes, Dr Mike Bagshaw, from the University, and Ashley Callaghan, of Ashley Callaghan Training.

A presentation on the implications of the Bribery Act 2010 will be followed by a question and answer session, with an opportunity to discuss the possible impact of the Act on organisations and consider appropriate responses.

The University’s Centre for Ethical Leadership works with leaders to support them in making decisions that acknowledge and respect contested values in areas such as the environment, social justice and governance.
