Guardian role of professionals in upholding ethical governance
Good corporate governance and ethical leadership are widely recognised as important factors to minimise risks of corruption and malpractices at the workplace. Professional accountants provide invaluable advice to senior management on corporate governance and act as guardians watching out for malpractices and non-compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. Accountants who perform their guardian role well can spot the red flags, blow the whistle and guide companies to maintain sound risk management and control systems to prevent corruption and related malpractices.
