Jun 4, 2018

Listen now as Tom Fox explains how compliance drives business success!

In today's podcast, I had the pleasure of chatting with and learning from Tom Fox, one of the nation's leading writers, thinkers and commentators on corporate compliance. Known as the Compliance Evangelist, Tom has recently published "The Complete Compliance Handbookwhich provides the most up-to-date guidance available on what constitutes a best practices compliance program for companies. Is your organization in compliance? Listen in and find out.

It is by having a robust compliance program that a company can provide the ongoing oversight to literally burn compliance into the very DNA of the organization. As a result, the company is run more efficiently and, at the end of the day, is more profitable. Similarly, this type of changing a corporation from the inside out, whether it's rethinking the organization's culture or adapting the business strategy for changing times, is something we stress with many of our clients.

A master of the ins and outs of compliance

In this podcast, Tom Fox and I talk about:

  • How to build a strong culture and organization

  • The challenges organizations face when confronting compliance issues

  • Why people sometimes miss the value of rules for themselves and their organization

  • How people solve problems from habits, which is not always the best way

  • How compliance is a business solution, not just law
