This corporate ethics and compliance training will provide you a framework for the evaluation of the effectiveness of your organizational ethics and compliance program. It will help you understand the importance and role of periodic evaluation in order to ensure compliance and avoid lawsuits.

Why Should You Attend:

The evaluation of an ethics and compliance program for effectiveness is a critical component of understanding whether your program actually has a positive effect on your company in terms of culture and risk management. It is also a critical component of a defensible program should your company be investigated or prosecuted for potential wrongdoing. In both instances – the positive culture and the defensible position – evaluating your ethics and compliance program periodically for effectiveness is not only an increasingly required part of doing business, it will also allow you, your colleagues, your executive leadership and your board to sleep better at night.

This webinar will provide a holistic review and assessment of:

  1. the essential ingredients of an effective global ethics and compliance program
  2. what tactical steps and substantive issues are of utmost importance in achieving an effective ethics and compliance program
  3. what the government’s expectations are with regard to what an effective program means
  4. how to test whether your overall program is effective
  5. how to maintain and reboot your program for effectiveness

By reviewing the key elements that can make a program effective, this webinar will better equip the attendees with a more comprehensive understanding of the full importance of an effective ethics and compliance program – a real program as opposed to a paper one.
