Interchange launches Bribery Act training

Business risk management experts Interchange introduce a programme of e-learning training for companies following the commencement of the UK Bribery Act on the 1st of July 2011

 
PRLog - Jul. 6, 2011 - With the Bribery Act 2010 in force from the 1st of July, many companies will be taking steps to ensure their bribery prevention policies and procedures are embedded and understood across their entire organisation in accordance with Principle 5 of the Guidance to the Act.

However, not all businesses have such measures in place and may find themselves unnecessarily exposed.  A recent survey by KPMG found that a third of UK companies have yet to conduct an anti-bribery and corruption risk assessment.

To help businesses, business risk experts Interchange – www.interchange-solutions.co.uk - have co-launched a series of e-learning programmes designed to help companies come into line with the Act through information and the interactive training of staff.  In partnership with E-Security Exchange, a specialist provider of e-learning in compliance-related topics, Interchange will help companies to address adequate procedures relating to Guidance Principles 5 and 6 of the Act.

“Many companies are averse to new legislation as it can be disruptive to their businesses, particularly if they need to introduce new measures such as policies, procedures and training across the organisation,” comments John Burbidge-King, CEO of Interchange.  “The e-learning programme we’ve developed is designed to make it as easy, straightforward and affordable for businesses to train their staff.”

The e-learning programme devised by Interchange and E-Security Exchange comes in the form of a series of educational units that are broken down into short sessions to minimise disruption to staff.  The overall aim is to provide a full electronic audit trail of employee training that provides evidence that a company has put in place adequate procedures to communicate with and train employees.

“The e-learning training is as detailed as it needs to be, but delivered in such a way that companies can inform and train their staff quickly, easily and in an engaging way,” says John.  “There are alternative levels of training to address line managers and above, as well as employees in non-managerial positions.”

The training makes extensive use of graphics, text and voice narration to make it easier for those with visual impairments or hearing difficulties.  Interactive scenarios specific to particular areas of risk are also included.

“This is a fully managed service for companies, including updating of the units, which they can brand as their own e-learning portal,” adds John.  “It’s not simply a ‘tick box’ exercise, but designed to embed the messages and create a positive attitude to the adoption of business ethics.”
