Companies need compliance to operate properly, but compliance may not always be sufficient, which is where ethics come into play. When we discuss compliance and ethics, there is a connection between the two that forces us to look beyond simply checking off a list of dos and don’ts since it includes creating a framework for an internal control environment. Gaining a competitive edge in the present corporate environment requires a value-based approach to compliance and ethics.

The most essential benefit of this course is that it will assist participants in establishing a solid ethics and compliance programme in their workplace to prevent misconduct and guarantee organisational survival in the face of Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous times. The training is also perfect for people who are new to compliance or have limited expertise in it, as well as for seasoned professionals who feel the need for a refresher in this rapidly changing field.
