Two team members on the compliance team.

Culture x Compliance: Redefining Organizational Compliance

Never before has the financial industry faced such a need to both define and successfully implement a culture of compliance. Organizations across the country and around the globe continue to face fluctuation in work environment and protocols – a challenge which, given the ongoing nature of COVID-19, necessitates a symbiotic relationship between HR and Compliance teams. 

But what really makes up a culture of compliance? And how can organizations of all sizes implement tactics to drive not only organizational compliance but individual responsibility? In this webinar, we sit down with both compliance and HR professionals to discuss and define a Culture of Compliance.   

This webinar covers:

  • Defining your culture of compliance: Beyond just buzzwords, the tactics organizations can implement to start on the road to a stronger, more unified culture of compliance.
  • Why culture is the key to compliance: Highlighting the role culture plays in a firm’s ability to comply with specific rules and regulations
  • Scaling for success: The different challenges faced by both large and small organizations when defining and implementing a culture of compliance, especially in a hybrid work environment
  • Finding the right technology: Why integrating the right compliance technology enables firms to solidify the culture around compliance as well as the structure of compliance programs
