INTEGRITY IN THE BOARDROOM
Code of Conduct/Ethics and Whistleblowing Policy and Procedures
Are The Boards Playing Their Role?
As a means to communicate what is deemed acceptable conduct/ behaviour or otherwise in an organization, employers would typically include such requirements in the letter of appointment to employees and contract personnel. In addition, reminders may be issued by those charged with governance from Time to Time to employees on the need to comply with company policies.
The Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance 2012 espouses a Code of Conduct/Ethics and a process to ensure compliance by personnel in listed issuers as a means to enhance transparency, accountability and integrity in the organizations. This half-day session focuses on what a code of conduct/ ethics is and how it may be drawn up for application & adherence. Participants will be introduced to the obligations of a listed issuer’s Board on code of conduct/ ethics as well as whistle-blowing policies and procedures, while the ongoing initiative by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to legislate a corporate liability provision on bribes and corruption (along the line of Sec/on 7 of the UK Bribery Act 2010) by company employees and associates will also be discussed.
The speaker will share examples on what went wrong in certain organizations that resulted in severe reprimand and fines levied by regulators. Key challenges in formalizing and effectively deploying whistle-blowing initiatives, including remedial measures, will also be shared.
The half-day session is meant to impart pertinent knowledge and insights on the intricacies of the topic covered by the Governance Expert. Case studies will be used to explain the topics with better clarity.
A “Questions & Comments” session is provided at the end of the session, enabling participants to engage with the speaker either on clarification of matters or additional information pertaining to the topics covered.
The session will be led by an ex-KPMG partner with 36 years of experience in 4 key practices, namely Internal Audit, Risk & Compliance Services, Financial Risk Management, Forensic, and Accounting Advisory Services.
