About Board and Fraud

Board and Fraud is a blog that aims to bring a practical approach to issues facing the board of directors and the audit committee specifically in the area of governance, risk management, compliance, and internal audit, with a strong focus on fraud, ethics, and internal controls.

You all should know that leadership matters in fostering ethical conduct at work. However, the focus is often on top level managers and their “tone at the top.” The role of middle managers has remained somewhat of a mystery until now.

Niki den Nieuwenboer will lead a robust and enlightening discussion on her recent study that examined a case where middle managers, in response to upper management pressures, coerced front-line employees to deceive upper management about their performance.

She plans on spotlighting the creative role that middle managers played in finding ways to cheat, and discuss implications for ethics management and fraud prevention.

Stay tuned for more announcements about the symposium line-up and registration information as we round out the day!

 

Best!
