Earlier in 2021, ETHIC Intelligence surveyed global compliance professionals to evaluate the role of compliance teams in organisational and business challenges.
We focused on this topic because, as a world leader in compliance auditing and certifications, we believe that it is our role to provide the compliance industry with the key emerging trends that we identify through our valuable contacts and experience.
The main takeaway from the survey was that, regardless of the size of a company, or its industry or location, not enough resources are being provided to compliance departments.
Other key findings were:
- organisations are still relying on compliance to guide their business strategies
- the responsibilities of organisations’ compliance teams are continuing to grow
- interest in management systems and certifications has increased significantly.
This whitepaper can be used as an informative tool for organisations to improve their compliance based on industry strengths and weaknesses.
