    CPE: 1.5

    Level: Intermediate

    Recommended Prerequisite:

    • Applied knowledge of how the elements of the Fraud Triangle can guide employee behaviors and lead to corporate fraud
    • Experience with fraud prevention programs

    Field of Study: Behavioral Ethics

    The last few years have shocked CEOs, boards of directors and shareholders. Scandals from Wells Fargo, Volkswagen, United Airlines and Uber (among others) demonstrate the unanticipated ethical impact of poorly conceived performance incentives. In this session, we unravel how these perverse incentives come to be, what to watch for, and how to better align corporate incentives and performance management to improve fraud prevention

    You Will Learn How To:

    • Identify the unanticipated consequences of performance incentives that don't clearly align with corporate ethics and integrity principles
    • Determine the impact of corporate ethical culture as an internal control that can influence employee behavior
    • Compare recent fraud case studies where perverse incentives and unrealistic performance expectations contributed to fraudulent behavior with significant consequences for the company
