For the last two decades, companies have been expected to establish effective compliance and ethics programs. These programs often need to include a system that allows for anonymity or confidentiality, where employees can blow the whistle without fear of retaliation.
The Covid-19 pandemic has only highlighted why a compliant ethics program is an absolute business necessity. More than half (52 percent) of employees are experiencing burnout in 2021 (up from 43 percent pre-covid), 41 percent of remote workers never want to go back to the office, and 1 in 4 women experience harassment while working from home.
Remote workplaces have introduced a new range of compliance risks and developments, including a significant increase in fraud and whistleblower activity, workplace safety conditions, cybersecurity, data protection, and more. These trends are sparking the need for new guidance on corporate compliance programs issued by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission.
Much of the whistleblower software available today makes whistleblowing a siloed and scary process for both employees and human resources teams. But, it doesn’t have to be.
Encouraging employee feedback and reports with the proper tools and processes can help companies retain top talent, save thousands of dollars from less employee turnover, avoid embarrassing and public legal action, build cultures of trust and longevity, and more.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- What companies need to do to stay up to date with the newest DOJ guidelines and values of a modern workplace.
- How to develop a comprehensive employee feedback strategy.
- How to proactively improve workplace culture to benefit from the honest feedback and input of your employees.
