Compliance professionals don’t often get the recognition they deserve. Let’s change that.
'Tis the season for joy and thankfulness and to take a few moments out of our day to thank those who help us continuously through the year. Many of us pause and give thanks to our mail carrier, mechanic, daycare provider, and others. Without their help, our day-to-day lives outside of work would be more challenging. What about inside work? What about those who keep us running and out of hot water: our compliance crusaders? You know who they are: those heroes that have gone above and beyond for the greater good of the organization throughout 2018.
During this time of year, we would like to pause and put a spotlight on these heroes that ensure the business stays running and employees stay out of hot water. We celebrate compliance professionals every year on September 26, but that doesn't mean we need to limit it to just that day. In fact, we've been sharing their great work throughout the year. Here's a round-up of some of the best blog posts where we shined the spotlight on our fearless heroes.
