Integrity is the cornerstone of good governance. Fostering integrity and preventing corruption support a vibrant commercial environment in which open and transparent competition is celebrated.
Integrity refers to the application of values, principles and norms in the daily operations of organisations. Businesses are under growing pressure from stakeholders to conduct themselves as good corporate citizens and for staff to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with the standards set by the organisation.
Achieving a culture of integrity requires coherent efforts to update standards, provide guidance, and monitor and enforce them in daily practice. It also requires organisations to anticipate integrity risks and apply tailored countermeasures.
Governance Manager’s organisational integrity framework has been developed to assist organisations with establishing the appropriate policies, processes and practices to identify and manage the specific misconduct risks that could threaten their financial, operational and brand stability.
