    CPE: 1.5

    Level: Overview

    Recommended Prerequisite: None

    Field of Study: Behavioral Ethics

    We know from the ACFE’s Report to the Nations that employee tips are by far the most important source for detecting fraud. And yet, we only hear about a small fraction of the fraud that employees observe. Building on insights from behavioral research, this session will explore the reasons behind employees’ reluctance to report misconduct to corporate GRC functions. Using criminological research, this session will explore effective strategies that organizations can use to better harness employees’ resources to effectively prevent, detect and remediate risks or intervene in an incident.

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Identify strategies to engage employees in organizational governance
    • Compare research on promoting a speak-up culture
    • Apply research on self-governance to the field of organizational ethics
