IBS Whitepaper: Create and Maintain a "Culture of Compliance"

Posted by Michelle Baron on Aug 09, 2011 @ 09:20 AM

Compliance should be the ethical core and integral to the day-to-day operations management of an organization. To regard compliance as a project or a target is to foster a lack of acceptance and provide a clear message that we are only doing these things because we are forced to do so.

Compliance must be specified in corporate policy and the ethics program, clearly and consistently communicated to the organization’s people, owned and operated by qualified staff, inherent in measurement and management processes, evident in rewards and punishment, and supported by appropriate compliance software technology.

Compliance is an integral part of the day-to-day company operations. This report, sponsored by IBS America, Inc. and written by Charles H. Le Grand, provides a concise and clear framework for building and enabling the compliance management culture and processes. You will learn what a "Culture of Compliance" is and what its main components are.
