Integrity in Business: Developing Ethical Behavior across Cultures and Jurisdictions
Integrity in Business is a salient guide to business integrity when navigating the increasingly regulated and complex global economy. Offering an in-depth analysis of the relationship between growing regulations and monitoring and integrity in business, Frank L. Holder takes a comprehensive look at the relationship between business practices and the regulatory environments in developed and developing economies. He answers questions like: what critical issues will developed economies encounter while experiencing regulatory changes? Do developing economies experience issues in adjusting to new global standards and how might these affect the local customs?
Frank L. Holder chronicles changes in the regulatory environment over the last ten years and also examines the parallels between how crackdowns on criminal behavior in corporations have led to increased numbers of regulatory agencies and government legislations (including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act). Drawing on over 20 years advising multinational corporations and governments, Frank L. Holder presents numerous case studies ranging from Enron to Citibank to the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme and provides practical solutions to how to limit risks and liabilities and improve integrity in your firm.
