In 2015, NAVEX Global partnered with an independent research agency to survey ethics and compliance professionals with responsibility for administering training across their organizations. The goal was to determine their top priorities and challenges. The findings represent responses from 677 individuals responsible for ethics and compliance programs.
This report is an excellent starting point for organisations committed to benchmarking and improving programme effectiveness. To leverage more advanced benchmarks, NAVEX Global offers custom benchmarking options as part of our Integrity DiagnosticsTM and Integrity MetricsTM report service. These services allow you to get apples-to-apples benchmarking for your organisation based on your industry, company size, or other defining factors.

While there’s no hotter topic at the intersection of business and technology than AI, Avanade research shows that 88% of global business and IT decision-makers say they don’t know how to use AI, and 79% say that internal resistance limits their implementation of it. It doesn’t have to be this way. Human-centered AI, which focuses on augmenting the workforce to improve customer and employee experiences, can contribute directly to achieving business goals.
This point of view discusses the ways your organization can take advantage of a human-centered AI approach, including redefining jobs and creating a digital ethics framework.

• Is my organisation following up on cases in an appropriate timeframe?
• How can I more effectively follow-up on anonymous reports?
Establishing a culture of integrity, ethics and respect is the number one priority for companies in 2017, according to a new report. In common with the 2015 report, getting an organisation's culture right is the main objective for compliance professionals in the year ahead, with 85 per cent of respondents saying it is one of their three main goals.
However despite this, only 32 per cent of firms indicated that they are planning to undertake a culture or ethics assessment in the next twelve months. In addition, workplace behaviour was rated as the lowest area of risk receiving attention by stakeholders (29 per cent).

This report reviews all-industry benchmarks created using data from all participating companies 4,600, in the NAVEX Global database and should serve as an excellent starting point for companies wishing to assess their organization’s reporting data—and help equip them to make informed decisions about programme effectiveness, potential problem areas and necessary resource allocations.
This paper shares the 7 steps organisations need to take to ensure that they meet the requirements of standard-making bodies worldwide and to also establish a culture of ethics, integrity and compliance.
The data from your ethics and compliance helpline should be benchmarked against comparable organizations to assess program health and make improvements such as implementing policies, training employees, and conducting investigations. Learn everything you need to know about benchmarking your helpline data in our toolkit.
Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme, including:
Does our culture support employees who raise concerns?
Are our communications with employees reaching the intended audiences and having the desired effect?
Are our investigations thorough and effective?
Do we need more training?
Do we need to review or update our policies?
Do employees know about our reporting channels?
Comparing internal data year over year to help answer these questions is important. But getting a broader perspective on how your performance matches up to industry norms is critical. This year’s analysis of our EMEA & APAC data from nearly 14,000 ethics and compliance hotline reports revealed key data points that compliance professionals can use to benchmark and assess their programme’s performance, and move toward predictive risk mitigation.
A strong ethics and compliance programme improves organisational culture, protects corporate reputation and enhances employee engagement. When an ethics and compliance programme is lacking, an organisation could be exposed to significant risk. To ensure compliance programmes meet ongoing best practices, assessments and regular reviews are necessary, valuable and expected by numerous internal and external parties, including government agencies.
New laws and regulations, new lines of business, new geographies and mergers and acquisitions become part of a growing enterprise your compliance ecosystem must support. This requires those in charge of the system to regularly revisit and assess their risk and priorities to make necessary adjustments that ensure an effective compliance programme.
