Apart from being free from the traps of cases that have tarnished a good name as well as obstructing business processes, the steps taken by bank bjb in preventing corrupt practices, especially in the form of gratuities, are appreciated by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).
Based on the official announcement issued by KPK, bank bjb was included in the top five finalists for 2020 Best Gratification Control Unit (UPG) event organized by the anti-graft agency.

"Like an illness, corruption will spread and eat away all parts of body as well as paralyzing, even destruct the nation. Therefore, corruption must be prevented. Bank bjb, through its Gratification Control Unit (UPG), tries to make efforts to prevent corruption from an early age and eradicate it from each fraud potential to its roots in order to avoid the dangers of corruption which not only violates law and morals but also creates structural damage," said Widi.
Through the UPG, bank bjb makes corruption eradication a part of the company's programs. This effort was made since corruption is not only a moral problem, but can also be prevented by structural steps to narrow down the possibility of corruption and fraud. At the same time, bank bjb constantly fortifies its employees from the temptation to commit various kinds of corruption.
These various measures to prevent and eradicate corruption are the manifestation of the joint commitment that bank bjb has made with KPK regarding PPG and the expansion of State Administrators Asset Report (LHKPN) in 2011. Through this commitment, bank bjb always strives to always implement PPG and LHKPN. This is proven by the award given by KPK to bank bjb, both in the gratuity sector and in LHKPN sector.
