HR professionals are experts in designing incentives programs through salaries, bonuses, promotions, and other rewards strategies.

While the HR department might not think that bribery issues are within their purview, CECOs and HR professionals know that employees may confide in their managers before they call anonymous hotlines, the law department, or faceless people in compliance whom they have never met. On the flip side, the employee may be disgruntled and bypass the company altogether, going straight to the government to seek a reward under the Dodd-Frank whistleblower program.
