The UK Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1st July 2011, making it a legal requirement for all businesses that operate within the UK to ensure adequate protection and training is in place against bribery and corruption in the workplace.  Our Bribery Act e-learning module has been developed from the ground up with experts, to help you understand the corporate offence of failing to prevent bribery, and how to put procedures into place with staff relating to the new legislation, and by making use of online training, job disruption is minimised as the course can be completed around your staffs current workflow.

Target Audience - This module is targeted primarily at businesses and individuals who are self-employed; however, it will also be of use to anyone who would like to increase their awareness of this new legislation.

By allowing them to work at their own pace you can have peace of mind that everybody has received adequate information, without feeling the need to compete with their peers.
