NATIONAL COMPLIANCE OFFICER DAY
On September 26th, National Compliance Officer Day recognizes the professionals who oversee the regulations, policies and procedures of an organization, ensuring it conducts business ethically. Legally, these professionals carry a heavy burden.
Businesses, non-profits and government organizations employ Chief Compliance Officers, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officers, or similar high-pressure positions. These professionals not only oversee these organizations’ policies but also respond to allegations of misconduct and evaluate procedures. They make changes when necessary. Additionally, they collaborate with teams to contribute to making the best decisions for the business to maintain compliance.
Compliance Officers require the ability to understand complex issues and promote ethical behavior. Business environments continually change. A compliance officer responds to those changes appropriately. Often their fast-paced schedules involve a high amount of risk and stress. They are responsible for protecting and watching over thousands of employees. While they may not have superpowers, Compliance Officers are all superheroes in the eyes of the organizations they protect.
It’s the risk of violations, and the financial and reputational damage that accompanies them, that makes Compliance Officers so important. Organizations value their analysis and ability to identify those risk factors. A Compliance Officer’s ability to help prevent expensive ethical and regulatory violations preserves an organizations reputation and more.
