WHITEPAPER | Cracking the Global Code of Conduct

Build a truly global Code of Conduct.

Many of today’s compliance leaders are increasing their understanding of the important distinction between companies that “do business overseas” and those that are true global organizations, and are rethinking their approach to compliance as a result. This is nowhere more apparent than in the growing number of employers looking to create a truly global Code of Conduct.

It is tempting to believe that a global Code is simply a broader version of the Codes many organizations developed with a US workforce in mind. But as challenging as writing a US-based Code is, a global Code of Conduct creates a very different set of challenges.

In this whitepaper, you’ll learn:

    • Why a global Code of Conduct is different
    • The unique challenges creating a global Code presents
    • The process of constructing a global Code
    • Whether your organization has a global mindset, and how that may impact your Code creation process
    • 4 considerations to keep in mind when engaging local leaders
