Why Read This
When risk and compliance professionals are challenged by a constantly changing regulatory landscape, business environment, and risk profile, it's easy to overlook the critical role corporate culture plays in keeping GRC programs running effectively. However, recent cases have shown that a neglected culture quickly breaks down the organization, with a wide variety of serious negative implications, such as financial penalties, poor employee retention rates, and diminished brand value. If you influence culture effectively, you heighten the value of GRC across the organization; the workforce becomes your best asset for exposing new risks and providing valuable feedback to key decision-makers. This report explains effective ways to continuously drive improvement in your organization's culture to make sure it's resilient against risk and compliance challenges that are sure to come.
