Who would have thought that this time two years ago, a majority of us would be working from home and Zooming into meetings instead of rushing down the hall to the nearest conference room?
But like everything else these past 24 months, the pandemic became a catalyst for one of the biggest shifts in work environments – transforming policies (and shifting mindsets) around the applicability of remote work across all industries.
New Year, Same Hybrid Work Environment
With COVID-19 variants continuing to cause disruptions to in-office work, it’s safe to say, virtual is our new reality…at least for the time being. In our recent webinar, “Preparing for 2022: Compliance Trends and Priorities” we discussed exactly how big of an impact the pandemic has had on work policies and procedures, discovering that:
- 74% of compliance professionals state their firms have changed policies and procedures to allow more flexible work arrangements.
So, what does that mean for compliance leaders and teams? Finding new ways to ensure your organization’s home offices remain in compliance despite the many dog, kid, and general life-related distractions.
An easy way to keep on track of your new policies and procedures, and ensure you don’t miss any key dates in your compliance calendar? Compliance Program Management. Stay on top of projects and the eternal questions of “who’s handling what?” even with your team spread out across the continental U.S. (and beyond).
Because while our work environment may never be the same, our compliance shouldn’t suffer the consequences.
