Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. Last week we considered the SEC regulations requiring companies to detail human capital issues in their annual reports and what it meant for compliance. This led to a week-long dialogue between Matt and myself about the current state of employee trust and its role in corporate culture and a best practices compliance and ethics program.
Some of the issues we consider are:
- Trust is down.
- The now former UK KPMG Chairman who told employees to ‘quit whining’ about the Coronavirus health crisis issue.
- Employees are under more pressure to deliver results. What does this do to trust?
- Employee to employee trust issues in WFH.
- Trust issues around RTW, both employee to employee and management response to employee health and safety issues at the workplace.
- Benjamin Moore getting rid of legal department and then restricting employee access to legal assistance.
- Greater fear toward retaliation stopping whistleblowers from coming forward.
