Board Support an Important Factor in Ethics and Compliance Programmes


New York, NY -- (SBWire) -- 08/24/2021 --Ethics and compliance can be a tricky area for any organization. However, there is evidence to suggest that where this has been made a priority by those at the top of the chain it tends to trickle down through the rest of the company too. The most recent Ethics and Compliance Program Effectiveness report, published by ethics and compliance solutions provider LRN has found that where boards made extra efforts to focus on ethics and compliance in 2020, staff were 1.6 times more likely to behave fairly and do the right thing. The research was focused on more than 630 ethics, compliance and legal executives and experts and looked at areas such as whether the board of the company supported ethical and compliance programmes fully during times of crisis or backed away from them. Some of the benefits of board support for ethics and compliance included the business being better positioned to meet future challenges and to act in alignment with public expectations.
