The appreciation course on Corruption Risk Assessment for Government Institutions took place at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja from March 4 – 5, 2015. Organized and jointly hosted by the United Nations Global Compact Office New York, the Global Compact Network Nigeria, the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) the course focused on the UNGC’s 10th principle on Corruption which states that “Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery”.
Principle 3 of the Children’s Rights and Business Principles (CRBPs) indicates that all businesses should provide decent work for young workers, parents, and caregivers. This webinar explored how companies can commit to supporting children’s rights by paying particular attention to the rights of young workers – who are above the minimum age of employment – as well as parents and caregivers. The discussion looked at what kind of support companies can provide to implement Principle 3, including provisions of safe working conditions for young workers, paid leave, breastfeeding and child care facilities, agile working hours, and the benefits of providing such support. The webinar also included specific examples from business.
