ON DEMAND WEBCAST | Co-sourcing Ethics and Compliance

Extending Your Compliance Team
Without Expanding Your Budget

Featuring Kathleen Edmond (60 mins)

Companies choose to outsource or co-source various parts of their operations for many reasons, with budget and headcount at the top of the list. In ethics and compliance, companies have many opportunities to co-source elements of their ethics and compliance programs, beyond just the traditional hotline relationship. Co-sourcing brings a level of experience and expertise in a dedicated business partner, but is still a new concept for many practitioners.

In this webcast, Kathleen Edmond, partner at Robins Kaplan and former Chief Ethics Officer of Best Buy, shares how to determine whether co-sourcing is right for your organization, how to choose the right co-sourcing partner and how to maximize the benefits to achieve the highest ROI on your co-sourcing relationship.

You will learn:

  • The benefits and potential drawbacks of co-sourcing
  • How to determine what to co-source and what to retain in-house
  • How to measure and maximize value and efficiency in a co-sourced model
