Importance of a sustainable compliance culture

The promotion of a sustainable compliance culture across the enterprise is a responsibility of the board of directors and the executive management, ...

The board members are liable for ensuring that the company complies with the regulations, the laws, the internal policies and ethical principles.  Their tone at the top filters down the elements of a “good culture” through the layers of management and decision-makers. The code of conduct and the corporate shared values foster the alignment of business decisions and plans towards a mature compliance culture. Where culture is favorable, behaviors are more desirable in terms of policy compliance, risk prevention, whistleblowing and accountability. Building a compliance culture is a process to prioritize risks and educate managers and employees to perform controls to manage those risks. Promoting the adherence to the objectives of the ethics and compliance program involves many activities, such as assigning accountability, strengthening monitoring controls and ensuring accessibility to legal advice.
