Posted By: Compliance Australia on August 9, 2010 in - Comments: No Comments »

Over time our services have evolved to keep pace with the dramatic changes in the Governance Risk and Compliance landscape. We are now able to offer a fully integrated suite of GRC services, ranging from governance support to directors and senior management, right through to detailed risk management and compliance programs.

At the highest level we are able to assist clients with a Corporate Governance framework that delivers effective stewardship and management; a Risk Management program that is conducive to informed risk taking; a Compliance Program that satisfies key regulatory obligations and a robust Corporate Culture.

At the more detailed level we assist with the design, implementation and maintenance of risk management and compliance programs.

Our strength lies in the broad range of skills, qualifications and experience of our team members. Our consultants include senior directors, professional risk and compliance consultants, accredited trainers and respected academics. We also have close relationships with other consultants in areas such as board and executive compensation, change management and executive mentoring and coaching that complement our services.

We offer rates that most professional firms find hard to match. When you engage with us our senior consultants actually deliver the service, rather than simply being the contact point at the start and finish of the engagement. In other words you get the dedicated attention of experienced professionals at very competitive rates.

Risk Management TrainingEvery Corporate Governance, Compliance and Risk Management program should include structured training and education for directors, management, employees and service providers. For those organisations subject to the licensing regime under the Corporation’s Act, the Trade Practices Act and the Anti Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Act there are more prescriptive training and competency requirements that must be satisfied.

At Compliance Australia we can provide training programs for a wide range of topics including:

  • Anti Money Laundering
  • Directors Duties
  • Trade Practices
  • Business Ethics
  • AFSL Licencing
  • Market Misconduct, including Insider Trading
  • Continuous Disclosure
  • Responsible Manager duties
  • Occupational Health & Safety
  • Privacy

We have found that the most effective approach to training involves tailored solutions delivered face to face with our clients in small group sessions. As most of our consultants are accredited, experienced trainers we are able to design and implement practical training programs that provide excellent value.

Risk and Ethics consutling
At the heart of every effective corporate governance, regulatory compliance and risk management program is a robust ethical culture.

Our Director of the Business Ethics Centre, Professor Stephen Cohen, is widely regarded as one of the most experienced consultants in the field of applied business ethics in Australia.

Compliance Australia, trading as the Business Ethics Centre, offers a range of services related to ethics and corporate culture, including:

Ethics Frameworks
We assist with the design of the overall ethical framework by clearly articulating responsibility for establishing and maintaining the corporate culture. We start with ensuring ownership by the Board, its sub-committees and senior management and then develop a framework which identifies responsibility for communication, training, monitoring and reporting.

Codes of Conduct & Ethics
We have extensive experience in drafting codes of ethics and conduct. We also assist in the implementation of codes throughout an organisation through workshops, online and face to face training and case studies.

Ethics Audits
A consultative service where we work with our client to align their values as professed by the board and senior management and values as actually perceived by various stakeholders, such as shareholders, customers and employees. In the process of an ethics audit we develop and implement processes to maintain the agreed corporate values. The objective is to ensure that all stakeholders share a common sense of purpose and beliefs.

Monitoring & Reporting
We can assist with the development of compliance, whisteblowing, complaints handling, employee feedback and breaches of codes of conduct and ethics; and reporting mechanisms for senior management and the board.

Training & Education
The most effective way to promote responsible behaviour is to develop an ongoing education program for all levels throughout an organisation, including the board and senior management. We assist in the design and ongoing conduct of ethics awareness programs.

We have assisted a number of organisations following ethical breakdowns by conducting investigations following regulatory breaches, negative publicity and beaches of internal or industry codes.
