Ethics and Compliance For Humans (Paperback)
Humans are complex creatures; we are often unpredictable, emotional, and irrational. These are real complicating factors for organizations seeking to do business ethically and in compliance with all applicable rules and regulations.
In Ethics and Compliance for Humans, corporate compliance expert Adam Balfour articulates why ethics and compliance departments, HR and business leaders must keep people top of mind when designing and implementing ethics and compliance programs. The human-centric programs Balfour espouses resonate with and are highly relevant to their audiences. They not only consider the human experience, but also protect those who are-or might otherwise be-harmed by wrongdoing.
With the staggeringly high costs of compliance violations and integrity failures and the impact that corporate wrongdoing can have on people and our communities, organizations need effective E&C functions to prevent these lapses. The programs and policies intended for this purpose must go beyond satisfying baseline standards, however, to drive real behavior change. Balfour offers guidance, dispels pervasive myths, and explores systems and tools that bridge the gap between E&C leaders' intent and an E&C program's lasting impact.
