Managing organizational, financial, regulatory and reputational risk has long been a core discipline of organizations in highly regulated industries. However, in recent years the rise of the activist shareholder, followed by increasingly sophisticated regulators and deeply empowered customers and employees has combined with a more complex array of risks to elevate the importance of broad, comprehensive and integrated risk and compliance programs.
It is no longer the case that Risk and Compliance management are quiet, unseen activities, only visible when something doesn’t work. Companies now are expected to demonstrate in stark relief how they are managing their impact on the Environment and Society around them and to be transparent about how they Govern themselves.
In the face of this challenge, the enterprises that thrive will be those who build unified, connected and integrated ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) strategies that build on and elevate their GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance), EHS&S (Environment, Health, Safety and Sustainability) and Corporate Learning programs.
This primer will explore the evolution of risk and compliance management, articulate the key role of ethics and compliance Learning and highlight the transformative power of platforms that connect risk management data with ethical culture across the enterprise.
