NAVEX survey: Remote work, whistleblower trends to test speak-up cultures
Maintaining a speak-up culture is becoming increasingly more difficult for businesses with many employees still working remote, putting more of an onus on the reporting function, according to the latest NAVEX study.
NAVEX’s “2022 Definitive Risk and Compliance Benchmark Report,” published Tuesday, surveyed more than 1,100 risk and compliance professionals from across the globe. Among the respondents, 84 percent said they work in the C-suite or management level.
Key findings included how risk assessments can be better leveraged; shifting priorities changing leadership’s commitment to compliance; evolving to new workforce dynamics; low levels of whistleblower protections; and how environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues are gaining attention but are not yet standardized.
