Limiting risk preventively
In addition to all the cultural aspects of compliance work, the HR department must also address risks within its own ranks:
- What happens if an HR colleague takes a bribe?
- How can HR processes be made fair and transparent?
- Do HR colleagues adhere to the Code of Conduct and demonstrate the company’s values?
The HR department not only needs answers to these questions but must also put processes in place which, in the best case scenario, prevent unethical behaviour from even occurring. At the same time they need to respond appropriately to compliance violations when these arise.
