Workshops & Seminars

Our workshops are designed as a one-day compact activity. We introduce the topic together and then work in small groups to dive into more niche relevant aspects. Each participant will receive a certificate of participation listing the topics covered.

The workshop preparation also entails a briefing meeting one week in advance, tailored specifically for the company. A debriefing meeting will follow the workshop to highlight the results that have emerged.

On the contrary, seminars are held over a longer period than workshops. They expand on the workshop material and are designed to maximize active participation. As a format, there is a choice between either a compressed seminar (2 to 5 days) or an online seminar over a longer period of time (e.g. one session per week over a period of six weeks to three months).

Workshops

Anti-Corruption, Transparency, Compliance

→ What is corruption?
→ Why is corruption bad for our business?
→ What are the laws and rules?
→ What rules and processes do companies need to introduce in order to effectively eliminate corruption?
→ How can we create an effective compliance system?


We explore how corruption is detrimental to good corporate governance and how good compliance guidelines and processes help to improve transparency and a company's reputation.

Workshops

EU Directives and National Laws

What is an EU directive and how is it implemented?

By considering the EU directive on disclosure of non-financial and diversity information (2014/95/EU), we explore how a directive is created and then translated into national law.

Participants will learn the processes, time-scale, and ways for participating and influencing both EU directives and the national laws implementing them.

Workshops

Code of Conduct

→ How is a Code of Conduct shaped?
→ Why do we need a Code of Conduct?
→ How to implement a Code of Conduct in an organisation?


Companies may guide their employees and managers towards common values through a basic philosophy, including vision and mission statements.
This is often not enough.

Common core values also include clear rules of conduct, respect for the law, transparency and anti-corruption principles, protection of the environment and sustainability, design and conduct of labor conditions including non-discrimination policies, as well as generally the respect for human rights.

Workshops

CSR Strategy: Design and Implementation

→ Why does a company need a CSR Strategy?
→ What are the components of a CSR Strategy?
→ How can it be implemented?
→ What is the impact of a CSR Strategy for a company’s business success?

Workshops

Non-financial Reporting Systems

→ What kind of management reporting systems are necessary to facilitate a systematic recording and monitoring of non-financial facts and data?
