Failure to organise your compliance framework and react to internal issues can be disastrous for organisations, resulting in fines, sanctions and reputational damage. During the heat of the COVID-19 crisis, while most organisations adapted at pace and carried on through the pandemic, aspects of their usual compliance processes did go into a level of hibernation. Now is the time to look back at what happened, put right any ‘wrongs’ and use lessons learnt to strengthen your organisations’ business conduct and ethics framework.
Where there may have been ‘wrongs’, the decision of any corporate entity to launch an internal investigation is a significant one and often of critical importance to its reputation and commercial future. For international companies, or those with global commercial exposure, foresight into the myriad of legal and practical challenges of internal investigations is vital.
How can you effectively manage risk across your organisation and what are the critical elements of your compliance framework that will help achieve this? How can you embed and measure a culture of compliance? What about when something goes wrong in an overseas operation, how do you react and manage potential issues?
