Overview

Compliance and ethics programs are critically important to the success and growth of any organization. Effective programs allow organizations to identify and mitigate legal risks, thereby preventing reputational damage or harm to the value of a company. An effective compliance and ethics program also allows any organization, large or small, to establish itself as doing business with integrity, which enables organizations to command the respect of employees, customers, suppliers, and the government. With an increasingly tough enforcement environment, and greater demands for transparency and accountability from a variety of stakeholders, an effective compliance program is no longer just “nice-to-have.” It’s essential. A distinguished faculty, drawn from major corporations, academia, law firms and the government, will provide you with the tools you need to create or enhance a program that works to increase employee awareness and mitigate legal risk. Compliance and Ethics Essentials 2019 is highly interactive and includes case studies, practical tools and real-time benchmarking with peers.
