Corporate ethics and compliance programs do not operate in isolation. That’s why executives need to take great care that corporate culture, performance incentives, and disciplinary systems are closely integrated with standard human resources and talent management processes. Effective ethics and compliance programs balance incentives and sanctions to encourage good and deter bad conduct. Disciplinary systems must be designed clearly and objectively, standards transparent and their enforcement clearly communicated across the organization.
