Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week: November 3-9, 2019
Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week offers a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics at your organization. By having a designated week, you and your compliance staff can build awareness in ways that reinforce not just specific rules and regulations, but an overall culture of compliance. Using the “hook” of Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week, you can emphasize your overall message in several different ways.
With a week-long celebration of compliance and ethics, you have a great opportunity to introduce and reinforce your chosen themes. Your plans will rely in part on your organization’s specific needs, but some basic goals may include:
- Awareness – of the Code of Conduct, relevant laws/regulations, hotlines and other reporting methods, the organization’s compliance and ethics staff, etc.
- Recognition – of training completion, compliance and ethics successes, etc.
- Reinforcement – of the culture of compliance for which the organization strives.
