As organizations expand their business operations around the world, they are faced with various new cultural norms and expectations. In some geographies, extending gifts, entertainment, or offering hospitality to clients and prospects is an important step in building a relationship. While this practice may benefit an organization’s goodwill, there are a number of regulations such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act, and World Bank policies that address these very practices. Failing to comply with these regulations or various internal organizational policies can result in irreversible reputational and financial damages.

Join experts Margaret Cassidy, Owner and Founder of Cassidy Law PLC and Timothy Schmutzler, Regional Vice President of GRC Solutions at MetricStream for a webinar that will explore an effective program for managing gift-giving, entertainment, and hospitality. Learn about the role of technology in defining risks, implementing an approval system, and establishing controls across the organization.

Additional topics to be covered during this webinar include:

  • The context driving an increase in anti-corruption laws and more rigorous enforcement
  • The various laws and regulations that impact your organization’s GEH program
  • Choosing between a ‘manual in-house point solution’ versus a ‘GRC platform to manage your organization’s GEH program
  • Managing the roll-out of an enterprise-wide GEH policy
  • Best practices in GEH policy creation, approval, and compliance
