Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

When someone new joins a team, we often think about onboarding from the manager and the new employee’s perspective, but often we may think less frequently about how that person’s team will be impacted in their work and as team members.

In this episode of GWIC, Lisa speaks with two of her peers at Pearson as she is reflecting on her first-year anniversary.  Sarah Powell is Compliance Counsel and Director, Third Party Anti-Bribery and Corruption Compliance and Cindy Merlino is the Global Ethics and Compliance Specialist, and both spent considerable time to do everything they could to set Lisa up for success.

We discuss how they support a new team member, from preparing pre-first day to the onboarding process, and provide tips on how to do that successfully while continuing their work.  We also talk about integrating new people and what qualities are important to them in a new team member.

Finally, Sarah is from South Africa and just returned there from London so we get a view on South Africa’s self-quarantine and how past ethics and compliance issues impact the current situation.  Cindy, like so many Americans, is adjusting to homeschooling while continuing her own work.
