Workplace Integrity

It is all to easy to turn a blind eye, remain silent.  Sometimes, knowing what the right choice or action is and how to go about it, whether and how to speak up can be confused by role, risk, reward or task and sometimes, the priorities set by their management or organisation or their approachability.  Employers can unwittingly encourage the wrong behaviours for perfectly rational reasons.  Most people who find themselves on the wrong side of a scandal, corporate fraud, bribery or corruption probe consider themselves fundamentally honest. However where opportunity (gaps), motivation (the individual’s why) and justification (rationalising self interest) are present, then along comes ethical risk too.

At Floodlight Business, we help employees unpick the legalities and internal policies as applied to their role, location and activity.  We deliver client support, training, workshops and facilitation sessions in a way to ensure the personal risk of self interest/misplaced priorities or loyalties, versus integrity is well understood.

Support in action

Integrity Workshops

Delivering insightful, lively and practical sessions and debate on all matters of integrity and ethical risk in the workplace.  Resources and content are tailored to make each session personal to the individual, their roles and their organisations.  We spend time with management and leadership teams to understand the concerns and internal dynamics, risk areas and market or geographic vulnerability.  Code of Conduct training can be ‘dry’.  Our sessions look to achieve a personal connection, through personal insight, storytelling and engagement.

Bribery and Corruption Awareness Training and Resources

Bribery and corruption remain significant ethical risks to corporates. We provide an interactive approach to understanding the legal framework alongside an appreciation as to what motivates people towards those behaviours which result in bribery and corruption, accounting scandals and fraud. Put simply, our job is to give resonance and reason to the law, your internal codes of conduct and market statements on bribery and corruption.  We make it personal.

Coaching the Unfamiliar

Transactions (M&A), deals, bids and tenders, multi-party consortia or JV’s or international growth projects (new office, new partners) all throw the organisation and sponsoring employees into the unknown. Team members involved may feel pressed (how do I run a deal and my day job), inexperienced, not clear (leadership may not communicate the objectives). New people, new dynamics, different culture.  Getting a deal through is only the beginning; transition and integration is not an easy task.  We see brilliant opportunities wane because team difficulties, poorly defined shared objectives and challenges can be wearing.  Knowing your place in the team, your shape and how you fit to deliver the big picture, what you are missing or need to enhance, is important.  We bring our deal and collaboration experience to the table and provide practical implementation support, facilitation and coaching.

Equipping for Integrity

Identifying ethical dilemmas and understanding the legal, governance and compliance framework is one part of the equation of integrity; the other is knowing how to respond and the role of governance.

We encourage individuals and teams to go beyond compliance training and to get their employees resourced and ready for such situations. We cover when to respond, to whom and how and what it means for personally to do so.  We help teams understand each other’s role; particularly relevant for in-house legal and governance teams engagement into their clients (the business).

Resource Influence

Busy teams including their leadership have enough on their plates than to produce integrity and governance articles, workshop materials, interviews, short influences, code of conduct, content for PQQ or ITN/ITT responses on Collaboration, CSR, ABC, Modern slavery, Social Value. We provide this support externally, weaving in client values and strategic priorities to ensure rich and thought-provoking content. Customers and key suppliers are heavily influenced by integrity and collaboration topics in making their decisions around procurement and partnering – they need to trust and work with their service delivery partners.   Your reputation and ethos directly impacts them too.
