Becoming compliant is extremely important. However, maintaining the level of compliance and continually addressing new or changing regulations is also crucial. Compliance management is a process. This process usually involves a number of people, or even a department of the organization tasked with adhering and enforcing compliance standards relevant to that organisation.
The importance of compliance in the workplace has become paramount to the core operational and corporate structure of any business. Most organisations are focusing on becoming 100% compliant to not only adapt to safer work environments, but also to satisfy the increasing regulations and standards set in place by relevant authorities.
It’s the responsibility of the company’s owners to ensure the necessary regulatory measures and procedures are in place. As such, compliance can be seen by many as extremely important to any organisation in order to satisfy its legal obligations.
Some of the obligations include:
- Workplace Bullying
- Workplace Harassment
- Supporting Mental Health
- Fraud and Corruption
