Ethical due diligence in hiring and assessing professional accountants

CGMA guidance for assessing potential employees

This briefing, co-produced with IBE, investigates why ethical conduct is so essential to business success and how companies, as well as employees themselves, can ensure that the recruitment process is used as an opportunity to promote values-based behaviour.
