Course overview

Gifts and hospitality are great. Champagne, a luxury dinner, an all-expenses-paid trip abroad. Who wouldn’t enjoy receiving an unexpected benefit in their line of work? But if that surprise gift now meant you were expected to do something for someone else, that would be considered a bribe.

Gifts and hospitality are a high-risk area for corruption. Although small gifts are usually acceptable, problems arise when companies don’t set clear guidelines for their employees or have robust policies in place. To make sure you’re not caught out, you need to keep a record of any accepted gifts, consult your company policy, and learn to recognize what is and isn’t appropriate.
