Compliance

For companies, compliance entails the abidance by legal regulations, as well as the creation of organizational precautions which ensure the abidance by legal and internal guidelines. Compliance guidelines represent an obligational set of rules in a company, which employees must follow. Nonetheless, unfortunately, corruption and bribery are common occurrences in corporations, for instance in the context of monetary incentive systems which reward employees based on sales.

An internal inhibition of corruption is of immense significance to enterprises, as a possible bribery scandal would cause an enormous loss of reputation. Further, fines, claims for damages, and skimming of excess profits are impending. In case of a fine, shareholders must expect a loss of their capital assets. The managerial staff, on the other hand, must expect possible prison sentences in case of an investigation.
