Course description

Auditing Corporate Culture and Ethics

More and more organizations are finding themselves in the news because of corporate failures, fraudulent events and other negative social realities. After close analysis of many of these events, the organization’s culture is more frequently cited as the reason why these failures and major issues were allowed to occur. More executive management teams, Board of Directors and even regulators are realizing the linkage between corporate culture and negative events and are paying more attention to the impact culture has in an organization. 

It is time for organizations to conduct a comprehensive review of culture and ethics! It is time to be proactive and for internal audit to add value in this challenging area. Where do you begin? We have developed a comprehensive two-day seminar that provides you with the needed background, support, tools and techniques to provide the needed guidance to the Board to protect the business. While culture and ethics could be a soft area to assess, we have a former Chief Compliance and Ethics Officer to take you through every aspect and to help you build a comprehensive and dynamic audit approach.

This seminar has seven key sections that will help you to: understand and connect the key components of culture and ethics; outline what is important to the Board and executive management; analyze those organizations that know what it takes to establish a great culture; the models you should consider; how to define and measure culture and ethics; discuss the need for a formal ethics committee; and then in a Workshop, we will facilitate and build a comprehensive and dynamic culture and ethics audit approach for your organization. It is a big job - one that will provide added value and continue to position your internal audit group as a leader and advisor to your organization.
