Effective compliance is driven by two elements:
- A clear and simple set of rules and guidelines
- Employees and leaders who live a value based corporate culture
Several compliance problems don’t arise because of missing compliance rules, but because employees are not fully convinced or motivated and don’t really live the existing rules actively. Thus, internal communications with a strong focus on engagement play a significant role in motivating employees to live culture of integrity!
The role of internal communications:
- internal communications regularly and thoroughly inform leaders and employees about compliance regulations and guidelines
- internal communications engage leaders and employees to actively and responsibly live a value based culture and thus to achieve a company wide compliance execution
Via various engagement activities and dialogue formats, internal communications enable employees to experience sensitive topics and deal with them directly, to they can understand and get convinced about the mechanics and benefits of compliance.
