ISO 37001 is the international standard that establishes the methodology to be followed for the prevention, detection and reaction to bribery within an organization. It considers both bribery based on the employee's own benefit and bribery committed by the company.
Beyond the legal aspects, the practice of bribery involves a series of negative consequences for companies in the long term. Among them:
