Seminar on Occupational fraud

LEWISTON, Maine — The Central Maine Human Resource Association is hosting a special seminar, “Tough Lessons: Managing Employee Moral and Ethical Dilemmas” 7:45-9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at Ramada Inn and Conference Center, 490 Pleasant Street, Lewiston.

Occupational fraud might be more common than many professionals think, particularly because some experts argue that the economic downturn might be leading more people to commit it.

Unfortunately, it can be easy to begin to find “grey” areas and justify many decisions to achieve our goals and dreams. This can become an unexposed trap that causes some employees to fall into the Dark Side of Success at some point along that journey. Unethical behavior becomes the accepted choice and the quest for more consumes them.

John Borbi, author of “Tough Lessons: the Dark Side of Success” will be the guest speaker. His story helps discover the warning signs and ways to break free from this destructive pattern.

Because of his life experiences, Borbi is uniquely qualified to share techniques on managing moral and ethical dilemmas. He travels the country to challenge and educate a diverse group including university students, corporate managers and employees, and is highly sought after for keynote addresses at national and international conferences.

Pre-registration for this event is required and is offered via the web: Cost, $20.00 and includes breakfast.
