Transparency International Hungary has evaluated numerous state owned enterprises companies on how they uphold legal regulations concerning public disclosure. Businesses have had a noticeably weak average, scoring only 46 points on a scale to one hundred. There were no public companies this spring that upheld all regulations. At that time, TI has decided to help public companies operate in a more transparent and accountable manner. This is why this e-learning material was developed.
The “SME Courage” anti-corruption teaching material, developed jointly by Telenor and Transparency International, lends a helping hand especially to small and middle-size businesses in the fight against corruption. Its foremost aim is to get users familiarized with the situations involving possible corruption cases and their possible consequences. The teaching material available online provides domestic SMEs with sufficient knowledge not only about laws but also practicalities and everyday examples to facilitate conscious and fair conduct. With the help of “SME Courage”, a company is able to efficiently train subordinates and lay the foundations for an honest, fair and transparent working environment even without the necessary resources.
