Look at the diagram above, and reflect on it for a moment. Do you have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset? Ideally, if you want to give yourself and your organisation the maximum chances of success, you would want to adopt a growth mindset.


The MIoD and Alinae Consulting, have invited Eduardo Briceno, expert on the topic to Mauritius for a training session in September.

Les entreprises du secteur privé invités à s'incrire à un projet de lutte contre la corruption



Les entreprises mauriciennes peuvent désormais s'inscrire à l’Integrity Pledge Project, un projet qui vise à engager le monde des affaires dans la lutte contre la corruption à travers l’amélioration des pratiques au sein des entreprises du privé.


Ce projet, officiellement lancé aujourd’hui au Hennessy Park Hotel par le Mauritius Institute of Directors en collaboration avec l'ICAC, Business Mauritius, Transparency Mauritius et des entreprises du secteur privé, comprend un outil d’évaluation qui permet aux entreprises d’identifier et réduire les risques de corruption au sein de leurs opérations.


L’outil d’évaluation est sous forme d’un questionnaire de 36 questions qui touche à divers éléments des opérations d’une entreprise, notamment, la mise en place d’un programme anti-corruption, la gestion du sponsorship et des dons, la gestion des cadeaux au niveau des entreprises, le whistleblowing et les contrôles internes entre autres.


Une fois le questionnaire complété, les entreprises pourront ainsi faire un état des lieux des systèmes existants et identifier les éléments qui nécessitent une amélioration. Les entreprises recevront un score basé sur les réponses données dans le questionnaire, et devront avoir un minimum de 50% pour passer à la prochaine étape, soit la signature du « pledge » qui symbolise leur engagement contre la corruption.
