The value of your compliance program is demonstrated with a mixture of art and science. Hard data and evidence-based information is your scientific proof, while more abstract observations of attitudes and behaviors make up the art of your compliance program. Together the art and science of your work tells its story of effectiveness. 

This section will give you the guidance to best tell your compliance program’s story of effectiveness through best practices in program assessment and benchmarking. It will give you the tools you need to package the raw data of your work into a compelling presentation to your CEO, board and senior management. And it will provide expert advice to help guide you through nurturing key relationships across your organization to showcase the value of your program even when it’s not in the spotlight.

I love the concept that a solid E&C program is self-perpetuating. Doing the right things right.

It is fascinating that the world's most ethical companies have continued to out-perform the S&P 500 since 2007. It proves that having a strong ethics and compliance culture truly creates an environment where employees thrive, thus resulting in the business thriving, and not just surviving.

Another important thing to note is that while establishing a strong E & C culture may seem to be cost a lot of time and money in the short run, it will pay off in the long run. Often it seems that companies that aren't ethical are able to attract employees with high pay and customers with low costs. However, over time a weak E & C culture will push customers and employees away. They will see that a high salary or a low priced good are not worth it if they have to deal with bad ethics. Establishing a strong ethical culture may not seem easy at the start, but it is something every company can do.
