[tabs id=”Effective_Policy_Management_Communication_Workshop1405″ heading=”Effective Policy Management & Communication Workshop”] [tab title=”Description” tabid=”Description”]Policies & procedures must be in place to safeguard and educate staff, to protect the organization against unnecessary risk, ensure the consistent operation of the business, uphold ethical values of the organization, and to defend the organization should it land in turbulent legal waters. 

However, effectively managing policies is easier said than done. Ad hoc or passive approaches mean that key policies are out-dated, scattered across the business, and not consistent– resulting in confusion for recipients; and an insufficient level of governance and reporting for auditors and regulators.

It is no longer enough to simply make policies available. Organizations need to guarantee receipt, affirmation AND understanding of policies across the business. To consistently manage and communicate policies, organizations are turning toward defined processes and technologies to manage the Policy lifecycle. The continual growth of regulatory requirements, complex business operations, and global expansion demand a well thought-out and implemented approach to policy management.

This workshop provides a collaborative learning environment in which the attendees will be guided through lectures and discussions to learn how to implement an effective policy management process within their organizations. [/tab] [tab title=”Who Should Attend” tabid=”Who_Should_Attend”]
