Raising awareness of and educating employees on the Group compliance policies and the applicable laws and regulations is a fundamental part of the RBP. There are a number of challenges in delivering a programme of this nature across more than 30 countries, including language, culture and logistics.

Feedback is sought from all attendees to ensure that the programme develops year on year and is relevant to each Region and its employees rather than being a ‘one size fits all’ approach. 

Since 2010, annual training has included:

  • e-Learning modules for human rights, anti-bribery and ethics, anti-trust and contract risk management; each of which requires a 100% test score in order to pass.
  • ‘Train the facilitator’ training of local managers and site-based compliance officers and subsequent cascaded site-level training. 
  • Site level training by the Group RBP team at higher risk sites.

This has been further supplemented by the provision of RBP training to be included in Group induction processes; reinforced in 2015 with revised guidance and materials for HR teams globally to ensure that this is standard practice around the Group.
