Why You Should Attend
Compliance and ethics programs are critically important to the success of any organization. Effective programs allow organizations to identify and mitigate legal risks and prevent harm. With an increasingly tough enforcement environment, and greater demands for transparency and accountability from customers, employees and the government, an effective compliance program is no longer just “nice-to-have.” It’s essential.
The skills necessary to implement an effective compliance program are usually not covered in business school or law school. Whether you are new to the area or a seasoned compliance professional, PLI’s program will give you the tools you need to improve your organization’s compliance program. Our distinguished faculty, drawn from major corporations, academia, law firms and the government, can help you improve your program, increase employee awareness and decrease legal risk.
