Media & Publishing

GoodCorporation has worked for a number of organisations in the media and publishing sector, including the BBC.

Our work in this sector has covered a range of ethics and compliance issues including high-level reviews of anti-bribery and corruption policies and procedures, development of anti-bribery compliance programmes, as well as reviews and benchmarking of corporate responsibility reports.

Our most high-profile work in this sector however, is the review of the BBC’s child protection and whistleblowing procedures that formed part of the Dame Janet Smith Review. Our findings were published as part of the review and a subsequent review conducted to examine the corporation’s procedures for managing safeguarding, bullying and harassment, speaking up and raising concerns.

GoodCorporation has also worked for BBC Worldwide to assess the adequacy of its anti-corruption programme and the effectiveness of its Modern Slavery Statement.

Speaking at the press conference to publish the Dame Janet Smith Review into Jimmy Savile enquiry, Lord Tony hall, director general of the BBC said; “GoodCorporation are impressive people, they made 53 recommendations, 51 have been accepted, one we are still working on and one we have found a better way of doing. These people are experts; these are not people who will not speak the truth … because they have done.”

Our clients in this sector have included: BBC, DMGT, Reuters, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, GCap Media.

GoodCorporation has a thorough understanding of how to assess Adequate Procedures.  Their years of experience provided us with a trustworthy, third party review of our internal systems, that has been invaluable in preparing us for the requirements of the Bribery Act and ensuring that BBC Worldwide is operating within best practice in this arena.
