Waiters Aren’t the Only Ones Who Rely on TIPs !! Innovative FRAUD prevention Technique


I came across this extremely  innovative concept in an advertisement of ETHICSLINE, an Hotline provider in ACFE‘s Anti-Fraud Resource Guide that states

“IPs are the leading method for detecting organizational FRAUD & Abuse.”

Well, right here is an extremely amazing & clandestine idea that was revealed to me & its a pleasure to share this info with you all.

Everybody has heard about various HOTLINE’s available for different products & concepts viz.  Customer care, Order, Inquiries, Public facilitation, etc. But has anyone ever thought about maintaining the information database on numerous Compliance issues for an induvidual, a Company or any form of Business Entity.

Why is it Necessary:

Hotlines provide a confidential and anonymous means through which fraud and other forms of business misconduct may be reported. Since no organization is immune to organizational fraud and abuse, a hotline can enable early detection and minimize the negative impact to your business.

And, hotlines are mandatory for many companies: Section 301 of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) requires publicly traded corporations to establish procedures for the confidential and anonymous submission of concerns regarding accounting or auditing matters. Even private companies, academic institutions, and government entities who are not currently required to comply with SOX have instituted hotlines since they are relatively inexpensive “insurance” when compared to other forms of internal control and provide real, measurable, anti-fraud benefits. Hotlines are also a core part of an “effective” ethics and compliance program as defined by the U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

What is it about?

Global Compliance introduced the original compliance reporting hotline in 1981 and is now the largest and most innovative provider – serving thousands of clients and their 25 million employees in over 200 countries. Global Compliance’s current client base includes 50% of the Fortune 100, 35% of the Fortune 1000, and 25% of the Global 500, along with major academic institutions, government entities, and non-profit organizations.

As the most experienced provider of hotlines worldwide, Global Compliance has built a proprietary database of over 3 million hotline reports – it’s the largest and most robust source of ethics and compliance reports in the world.

In addition to hotline and case management services, Global Compliance also offers expert advisory services, training and awareness programs, and benchmarking that leverages the proprietary database and provides contextual insight into ethics and compliance program performance. These services are also offered and delivered globally to its international client base today.

Hotlines are an effective means of uncovering allegations or concerns specific to:

  • Accounting, Auditing, and Financial Reporting
  • Business Integrity
  • Diversity, Equal Opportunity, and Workplace Respect
  • Environment, Health and Safety
  • Human Relations, Administrative, Compensation
  • Misuse or Misappropriation of Organizational Assets, Information

9 Tips to find your next job & keep yourself alive during job search


1. Network! Think of the people you know — relatives, friends, professors, classmates, co-workers at summer jobs, and others. Make more of an effort to meet with people, and use these conversations to ask their advice, to make them aware of your job search, to learn more about their jobs or their organizations, and to get the names of others who might be useful in your job search.


2. Target your Résumé. Make sure your résumé is targeted to the employers who receive it. Make sure your résumé is easy to read and the most important details stand out. Make more than one résumé if you are applying to more than one industry.

3. Be prepared. You should have a copy of your résumé at all times. It is also a good idea to have fresh copies of your résumé prepared in case you are called to an interview at the last minute.

4. Create a contact database. Write down all the employers you contact, the date you sent your résumé, any contact made, people you talk to, and notes about those contacts. Keep a notepad with you at all times — take notes as soon as you hear about an opportunity or when you leave an interview. Get into the habit of updating your database daily.

5. Learn how to talk about yourself. Throughout your job search you will speak with many people at different levels. You must be comfortable having conversations about yourself with other people. Keep in mind that you never know who may end up being useful to your job hunt.

6. Prepare an elevator speech. You never know who you’ll meet in an elevator, in line at the coffee shop, or on the street. Know what your skills are and how to communicate them. You should be able to tell prospective employers and others you meet what you can offer. You should also be able to talk about how your skills relate to the industries that interest you.

7. Find out all there is about employers in your field. Remain current on any issues or developments in the field, read trade journals or professional publications, and read the newspaper. It is extremely impressive during an interview if you know about the latest merger or coup in the industry.

8. Follow-up with leads immediately. If you find out about a position late in the day, call right then. Don’t wait until the next day.

9. Stay confident. Job hunting takes time and energy. Remain confident, but prepare yourself for challenges ahead. Don’t get disgruntled if you are still looking for a job and it seems like everyone you know has an offer. Most students find their jobs after graduation.
