I’d like to take this opportunity to ask all compliance & ethics professionals to think about their organizations’ policies for a moment.
That’s right. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath and think about your policy universe. Breathe in. Breathe out. Slooooow, deeeeeep breaths. Now open your eyes. Do you feel calm, cool, and collected? Or, are you more stressed now than you’ve been since this nutty, global pandemic started?? If I had to take a wild stab in the dark, it’s closer to the latter for most of you — and with good reason.
Most organizations — public, private, government, and non-profit — have an absolute mess on their hands when it comes to policies. You have too many of them. They are inconsistent - in form and in substance. They are incomprehensible and impossible to find. And — news flash! — nobody reads them.
Most organizations — public, private, government, and non-profit — have an absolute mess on their hands when it comes to policies.
It’s time to make sense of that mess. And, honestly, it’s not that hard. It’s not easy, mind you. But it’s doable — and most certainly worth doing. Your organizations will be better off. And, more importantly, your colleagues will be relieved. He!!, they might even thank you!
Join us at the SCCE CEI virtual conference for breakout session #608, where I will partner with our client, Desiree Ramirez from the University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC), to talk about:

- Tips, tricks, and potential pitfalls; and
- Policy management
We hope you’ll join us for this virtual session on September 15th, 11:15-12:15 CT. You can learn more about the SCCE’s Compliance & Ethics Institute and register to attend here. We’re looking forward to another great conference!
