Ethics and Compliance documentation have become mandatory and essential for the proper management of a global corporation. Regulations are necessary to protect the integrity of a company and to maintain accountability to its partners, investors and customers. Having a set of ethics and compliance policies promotes enterprise-wide awareness as well as the early detection of problems before they escalate into problematic situations. It also deters flagrant waste, abuse, fraud and corruption. These are particularly pertinent in today’s business climate, as evinced by the recent high-impact fallout triggered by the failure of a few giants in the financial arena.
Fear of financial loss, legal action and reputational damage has also inspired more companies to pursue ethics and compliance, but as a business process, ethics and compliance management also generate considerable positive value. Companies that have adopted proper ethics and compliance have become more productive and have achieved lower legal risks in business dealings globally. Customers are also more likely to buy their products and services.
