With emerging and evolving regulatory expectations, companies increasingly find themselves making substantial investments — in the form of time, effort, and funds — to ensure the organization is in compliance. And that means gaining buy-in from stakeholders and the board. 

Building a compelling business case for compliance is the key to inspiring that engagement. It relies on knowing the measurable benefits of a compliance program, aligning the program’s strategic objectives with corporate goals, and demonstrating the team’s ability to meet them, through clear and attainable metrics, year after year — and it’s no small feat. 

This webinar, the second in our guest speaker series, features a panel discussion with industry experts Anthony Wareham, a 25-year health and safety leader, and Keith Serre, partner and head of Deloitte’s Compliance and Operational Risk (C&OR) offering. The two discuss practical tips, lessons learned, and stories from the field related to their experience building a robust business case for compliance.
