  • Integritatea in mediul de afaceri - modele de bune practici europene

Promovarea integrității este vitală în combaterea practicilor ilegale și lipsite de etică ce pot apărea în mediul de afaceri de zi cu zi.

Studiul oferă o trecere în revistă a principalelor standarde de conformitate aplicabile, în România, tuturor categoriilor de companii, indiferent de domeniul în care operează și care converg către o conduit integră în afaceri. Studiul se adresează cu precădere ofițerilor de conformitate care doresc fie să pună bazele unui astfel de sistem în companiile pentru care lucrează, fie să îl testeze sau revizuiască pe cel existent.

Volumul de față răspunde la întrebări de genul „ce poate face organizaţia mea ca să fie un lider moral?”. Altfel spus, este despre cum pot întări companiile buna reputaţie pe piaţă şi creşte performanţa prin asumarea poziţiei de lider în materie de etică în afaceri.

Studiul oferă o privire de ansamblu asupra modului în care politicile de integritate și codurile de etică sunt respectate, aplicate de către companiile private din România.
