Incorporate compliance and integrity objectives into your business Strategy
Including compliance and integrity objectives in the business strategy ensures that leadership is dedicating appropriate resources to and is supervising the compliance programme. This improves the likelihood that leaders, employees and the company will adhere to ethical standards when conducting business, particularly in high-risk geographic or business areas.
Profit and compliance should not be treated as conflicting with one another. The key way to avoid this is to integrate compliance and integrity objectives in a company’s business strategy.
