Ethics and Compliance Program Effectiveness: Auditing and Assessing the State of the Organization’s Culture
September 19, 2017
1:00–2:00 p.m. ET
This webinar tackles the challenging problems associated with evaluating ethics and compliance program effectiveness. Ever-changing external requirements, board expectations, and the leadership team’s focus on compliance continue to increase the need to know if gaps exist in an organization’s ethics-related behaviors, and if the organization’s culture supports doing the right thing from an ethics standpoint.
The presenter will describe a framework to support internal audit’s role in ethics and compliance program effectiveness and measure the “strength” of the organization’s culture. The framework can be used to examine the application of ethical standards, how organizations investigate and address grievances, external financial disclosures, and how the culture impacts the ability of employees to work consistently with ethical expectations.
In this session, participants will:
- Learn about a framework that can be used to support audits of ethics-related practices.
- Examine possible barriers to implementation of ethics-focused audits.
- Examine ways to address barriers, resulting in the ability to successfully achieve an effective ethics-related audit.
