The two organisations will expand availability of ethics and compliance solutions in Italy
London – June 27, 2018 – Leading ethics and compliance software and services company NAVEX Global® today announced a strategic partnership with the Omniapart Group, which will expand its offering of business consultancy services to include NAVEX Global’s ethics and compliance solutions.
Through the partnership, Omniapart Group will provide a comprehensive suite of services to its clients across a number of sectors. The incorporation of NAVEX Global’s advanced range of ethics and compliance SaaS solutions and services – including whistleblower and speak-up help lines, third party due diligence solutions, incident and policy management solutions and online compliance training courses – allows the Omniapart Group to further broaden its existing reach in the Italian market, as well as adding further value to its services provision.
“The Omniapart Group is a leading organisation in the Italian professional advisory services industry,” said Steve Smith, Vice President of Sales at NAVEX Global. “We’re excited to be working closely with them. Our mutual goal is to increase the adoption of scalable ethics and compliance solutions in new markets where the development of effective compliance programmes is already proving beneficial for organisations. The expansion of the services that the Omniapart Group provides, and the development of a more integrated ethics and compliance offering, will greatly benefit client organisations. It will also improve the access of Italian companies to a comprehensive ecosystem of compliance solutions.”
“By partnering with NAVEX Global, we have aligned ourselves with the global leader in ethics and compliance solutions,” said Francesco Cipullo, CEO of Omniapart Group. “The Omniapart Group aims to fulfil our goal of helping organisations navigate the evolving regulatory landscape, and improve their long-term business performance through the enhancement of their ethical workplace practices. In the wake of new whistleblowing regulations recently passed by the Italian government, the incorporation of NAVEX Global’s solutions and services will enable us to provide a full suite of compliance tools and resources to our customers. This in turn will reduce organisational risk by helping to protect our clients’ staff, company reputation and financial performance.”
Note to editors
On November 15, 2017, the Italian Parliament approved legislation that will improve existing whistleblowing provisions in Italy. The main innovation being the widespread introduction of formal, comprehensive whistleblowing guidelines for the private sector.
Amending current regulation on corporate administrative liability, the Whistleblowing Law stipulates that organisations’ compliance programmes must detail one or more channels of reporting of misconducts, as well as providing greater protection of whistleblowers’ identity. The law also addresses previous deficiencies in reporting processes, with a particular focus on anti-corruption.
