Program Assessment and Analysis, Development and Support
CLEAResources offers a wide range of support: Audit and assessment of your current compliance and ethics efforts or program. Many Codes of Conduct call for a third party, objective, and periodic review of the compliance and ethics program. CLEAResources has the expertise to accomplish this with affordable ease.
Comprehensive Investigations by Licensed and Experienced Professionals
Companies with even the best compliance and ethics programs experience incidents from time to time and all companies are obligated to investigate what happened and how to prevent it from happening again. Because of the dramatically changing whistleblower landscape, it is more important than ever that your organization have an effective investigations policy that is followed each time an investigation is needed. CLEAResources can assist with the development of an investigations protocol and policy or conduct the investigations you need done. We have licensed investigators with decades of investigations experience and a national network of interviewers ready to assist you.
Comprehensive Risk Assessment Support
“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.”
–J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
Many Chief Compliance Officers are dual-hatted and may not have the knowledge or skills required to accomplish an effective risk assessment. You can count on CLEAResources to help you get this critical foundation block of your program squarely in place, so that your program is directed at mitigating the right risks and that your valuable and limited resources are put to the best use.
Development of Program Strategic Plan for Growth and Maturity
“We have to build the framework in which we will execute the tasks.”
–LTG Claude V. Christianson
A compliance and ethics program is not a destination, it is a journey. Every corporation should know and have a plan as to where it is going with its program and what the program goals are each year. This can be an intimidating task initially, but CLEAResources has developed a unique and innovative one-sheet compliance management tool that costs no more than Microsoft Office(R) and a piece of paper. We can help you build the framework that quickly and easily identifies the tasks—even as business operations and risks change.
Code of Conduct Design, Development, Drafting and Roll-Out
The Code of Conduct remains a somewhat elusive document. Attorneys ask: “What should go in it?” Employees ask: “Do we really have to certify that we read the whole thing?” and management does not always understand the role the code should play in day-to-day operations of the organization. Yet, it is the linchpin of the compliance and ethics program. It puts your risk assessment into action and guides those who hold the highest risk areas for your organization. CLEAResources has expertise in this area: from the development of corporate values, to a user-friendly, understandable layout and prose, we can make your Code of Conduct go to work for you. CLEAResources offers any kind of level of support you need from a quick proofread to total life cycle project management, let us know how we can best support you.
Assistance with Development and Drafting of Compliance Policies
Drafting and maintaining policies are everyone’s favorite corporate task, right? No, it’s really not. Getting a handle on what policies are needed, which can be consolidated or even eliminated is a necessary step to mitigating risk in your company and CLEAResources can advise every step of the way.
Assessment of Corporate Culture
“If you don’t manage your culture, your culture will manage you.”
Do you know what your employees’ opinions are about their workplace? Do you know where your corporate culture needs work? CLEAResources can assist your company with identifying where the culture needs improvements or where it’s strong so that you can align executive changes to maximize the talent and potential of your workforce.
Assistance with Evaluating Vendors and Technology to Support Your Program
We only have so much time in the day, so when you are booked 25/8, let us know how we can help you identify an automated or technology solution that will increase your productivity and effectiveness in managing your compliance and ethics program. There are so many options available. We can be a valuable partner to help assess what you need to best use the limited resources you have for your program.
Custom Training Development and Delivery for the Workforce or the Board Room
Whether it is working with our e-learning partners or developing a custom presentation for your field workforce or boardroom, CLEAResources knows adult learning and can help you get the word out on what needs to get done and more importantly, how to get it done to sustain corporate growth and success. Our team can draft the training for you, help match you to a vendor with an off-the-shelf solution, or assist with developing realistic and relevant scenarios to take your training to a new level.
Advice on Development of Monitoring and Auditing Schedules and Protocols
You don’t get what you expect; you get what you inspect. It is never safe to assume everything is going smoothly and according to policy. Trust, but verify. This requires careful planning so that time and money are not wasted. CLEAResources can help you develop monitoring and auditing protocols to achieve continuous effectiveness of your program and to be able to identify where breakdowns are most likely to occur.
