Every compliance program needs polices, training, reporting, leadership and audits to succeed – but it’s not enough. Federal guidance makes clear that an effective compliance program requires a strong culture to support it. Practical experience also teaches us that culture will make or break a compliance program.
We will walk through steps providers can take at the employee, management and board levels to cultivate a compliance culture that takes your company in a direction of employee trust, internal reporting, audits with integrity, and compliance strength.
Using examples from the headlines, we will walk through
real-world fact patterns and decisions that shaped compliance culture.
Identify steps providers can take to promote a positive
culture of compliance, as well as strategies to counteract negative culture
forces. Approaches will include board involvement, staff training,
accountability and incentives, and more.
