NAVEX Global’s Agile Code of Conduct
Innovation in User Experience for Policy & Training Management
[tabs style=”default”] [tab title=”Executive Summary”]
The most significant exposures to risk and compliance issues are at the front lines. The organization must effectively engage employees and educate them about their responsibilities in the context of their role in the organization. The challenge is that organizations need to find a way to get everyone involved and engaged to build integrity across the whole organization and the extended enterprise. User experience for policies has been typically poor in most organizations, resulting in time-consuming and redundant processes, a check-box mentality, and lack of central coordinated efforts for communications. Organizations have ended up with multiple sources of policy, training, surveys, assessments, and issue reporting hotlines. Policies, particularly the Code of Conduct, is only as good as your front-line understanding, participation and alignment with them. It is no longer enough to have the right written Code of Conduct and supporting policies; you have to show it is understood and operationally effective. This requires employee engagement in the Code of Conduct experience. NAVEX Global’s Agile Code of ConductTM is a GRC solution that GRC 20/20 has researched, evaluated, and reviewed with organizations that are using it in dynamic business environments. GRC 20/20 has evaluated and verified the innovation found in the Agile Code of Conduct and sees this as a compelling offering for engaging employees on the Code of Conduct. Through an integration of web technologies into a unified user experience, the Agile Code of Conduct makes compliance and ethics communications more efficient, effective, and agile. In this context, GRC 20/20 has recognized NAVEX Global’s Agile Code of Conduct with a 2015 GRC Innovation Award for the best user experience in policy & training management in 2015.
