This time Eric talks about compliance surveys. Eric discusses what sort of content you might consider including in the survey instrument, whether you might want to consider benchmarking, and finally Eric discusses some of the practical elements of putting together a survey.
This time Eric talks about three different areas to focus on when evaluating how you are reaching your remote workers to educate and inform them of the compliance program. Eric discusses use of local and existing resources, what resources should be developed by the compliance function and how technology can be put to use.
Eric is also speaking at SCCE’s Energy and Utilities Conference in Houston on February 11th. Join us there if you can!
This time Eric discusses some considerations when looking at the role, responsibilities and relationships the board (or governing authority) of the organization with the operational personnel of the compliance and ethics program. There are a few key best practices to consider when evaluating the board’s role, including their training and knowledge of their responsibilities, their understanding of compliance risks and controls and their relationship with operational compliance.
Also, Eric mentions his upcoming speaking role at the SCCE’s Utilities Conference in Houston, February 10-12, 2019. If you are interested in attending, information is here.
In anticipation of our upcoming webinar on code of conduct development we talk today about what “requirements” for a code of conduct exist. Eric also provides a sneak peak into some of the content of the webinar by discussing the Department of Justice’s February 2017 memorandum and how that applies to code of conduct development.
How do you avoid all compliance risk? Hint: you can’t. This week Eric talks about some recent articles and discussions that suggest there might be a magic bullet or two (sometimes in the form of a new software tool) that will take away those pesky compliance concerns. We alk about the practical and the pragmatic view of this topic.
Also, please join us next week for a webinar on developing your code of conduct. We’re putting the webinar on with our friends at the Clear Law Institute on January 17th at 3PM ET. If you are interested in joining us for “Updating Your Code of Conduct: Best Practices” you can register here.
