2016 Compliance Effectiveness Survey
For any compliance program, a critical measure of success is its ability to prevent incidents from occurring. Determining how many events are avoided is difficult, though. Employees rarely come forward to report, “I was about to commit a felony and then remembered that compliance training I received.”
Yet, near misses do occur and can provide proof of a compliance program’s effectiveness. To gain a better understanding of the effectiveness of compliance programs at preventing problems, in the third quarter of 2016 the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and the Health Care Compliance Association jointly fielded a survey of compliance and ethics professionals.
