An effective workforce compliance program is a team effort. If a department, office, vendor, or even an individual worker is out of compliance, the entire organization is at risk. Your team also shapes your compliance program over time: what they find engaging, and what they don’t—as well as their technological preferences, accessibility needs, and learning styles—should guide the content of your training courses and components of your platform.
That said, your organization also needs to invest in your MVPs: the members of your board. Executive or board oversight is one of the 4 pillars of a sound compliance management system—which is why regulators require it.
Join Compli and Killgore Pearlman next week as we discuss how to cover your compliance oversight bases efficiently. Attendees will learn about regulatory requirements from a seasoned lawyer, and what oversight teams want to know—directly from a veteran board member.
