Alexander strongly emphasizes the importance of compliance culture in organizations, believing that a culture promoting compliant behavior reduces the likelihood of ethical lapses or legal violations. He argues that creating a culture of compliance is not only ethically sound but also makes good business sense in today’s era, where consumers are well-informed and employees prioritize alignment with organizational values. Alexander suggests that organizations should reinforce their values and highlight the economic benefits of compliance to gain employee buy-in and engagement, emphasizing the need for continuous improvement, conducting root cause analysis, and involving various stakeholders to address cultural issues effectively.
