DATA AND INSIGHTS TO GET MORE VALUE FROM YOUR PROGRAM
Most organizations have compliance training programs in place today. In most cases, these
programs are pursued to both protect the organization and to help build a culture of ethics and respect. Yet too many programs stagnate and lose effectiveness as learner fatigue grows, content ages and key measurements and strategic targets are missed. The compliance training

Once again it’s time for our annual review of trends and events that will impact your Ethics and Compliance (E&C) program in the year ahead.
This year presents a unique challenge. We are preparing our predictions before the dust has settled from the recent U.S. election. It’s likely that the election will have an impact on regulatory and enforcement efforts in the coming year and beyond, but at this time it is difficult to know what the impact may be and how it will affect the work of ethics and compliance officers.
While changes are likely, many of the challenges we face are unlikely to be affected at least in the near term. For this reason, we are confident in our predictions and recommendations. We’ve talked with industry experts, our colleagues at NAVEX Global, and ethics and compliance professionals from our more than 12,500 client organizations and based on their input, we’ve selected the Top 10 Predictions and Recommendations for 2017.

Establishing a culture of integrity, ethics and respect is the number one priority for companies in 2017, according to a new report. In common with the 2015 report, getting an organisation's culture right is the main objective for compliance professionals in the year ahead, with 85 per cent of respondents saying it is one of their three main goals.
However despite this, only 32 per cent of firms indicated that they are planning to undertake a culture or ethics assessment in the next twelve months. In addition, workplace behaviour was rated as the lowest area of risk receiving attention by stakeholders (29 per cent).

Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme, including:
Does our culture support employees who raise concerns?
Are our communications with employees reaching the intended audiences and having the desired effect?

Do we need more training?

A strong ethics and compliance programme improves organisational culture, protects corporate reputation and enhances employee engagement. When an ethics and compliance programme is lacking, an organisation could be exposed to significant risk. To ensure compliance programmes meet ongoing best practices, assessments and regular reviews are necessary, valuable and expected by numerous internal and external parties, including government agencies.
New laws and regulations, new lines of business, new geographies and mergers and acquisitions become part of a growing enterprise your compliance ecosystem must support. This requires those in charge of the system to regularly revisit and assess their risk and priorities to make necessary adjustments that ensure an effective compliance programme.
