Companies are spending more resources on ethics and compliance programs. Department of Justice and SEC prosecutors are increasing their focus on compliance training programs to make sure they are tailored to a company’s risk profile and the company’s workforce. Compliance officers have to develop training content that is engaging and relevant to specific categories of company employees. In this aggressive enforcement environment, a company’s training program has to be effective and documented to ensure that a company’s culture and commitment to ethical conduct is adequately promoted and embedded.
Join industry experts Farzad Barkhordari and Michael Volkov to learn the legal best practices and practical steps to designing and implementing ethics and compliance training strategies.
In this webinar, you will learn:
