Mastercard-produced compliance training film now features foreign-language subtitles

An award-winning anti-bribery training film that’s available for short and long term licensing can now include subtitles in twelve different languages.

“Behind the Bribe” is based on a Mastercard production that depicts the story of my FCPA violations, eventual guilty plea, and sentencing to fourteen and a half months in prison.

It’s designed for use by any corporation or multinational in any industry, and in any location.

Subtitles are user friendly, where the viewer simply clicks on the language of preference, and the subtitles automatically link to the video.

The 11-minute video, available for licensing from Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC in association with Mastercard, has been awarded two prestigious Silver Telly Awards.

Karen Griffin, executive vice president and chief compliance officer at Mastercard, said: “We recognized the need to move beyond the traditional classroom exercise to help our teams understand the potential impact of bribery and compliance events.”

“Richard’s story delivered just that and we’re looking at ways to continue to build on this film to continue to reinforce other learning moments.”

Here’s the one minute trailer:
