Make Way for the Chief Integrity Officer: Beyond Compliance
Today, corporate compliance is more important than ever. However, compliance officers cannot be expected to carry the whole weight of corporate responsibility on their shoulders. The authors discuss the main compliance challenges faced by managers today. To address those challenges, they propose the creation of a new senior executive profile: the Chief Integrity Officer. This person would support the CEO and the board in shaping the corporate culture, helping to create an organizational environment in which people are happy and proud to work -- not just because they are complying with the law, but because they are making a positive contribution to society.
