Policies, Compliance, and You

By August 13, 2018Learning Content

Remember when you were a kid and your life was just a series of rules being thrown at you:

“You CAN’T go in there!”
“DON’T eat that!”
“That’s NOT for climbing.”

Yeah, being a kid was a drag wasn’t it? And I bet you said to yourself that when you were older, you’d be your own boss and you’d only abide by your own rules.

But then, adult life happened and all those dreams of individual autonomy came crashing down. Nothing’s really changed has it? Back in the day, it was making sure you followed the rule against eating glue in class, and now, it’s whether you are complying with GDPR at work.

Yep, nothing’s really changed…

All those rules didn’t disappear; they still exist. They’ve just evolved and grown into scary, confusing names like Policy and Compliance.

Now we’d love to tell you that Policy and Compliance was a brand, new cop show charting the lives of two grizzled, but by-the-book New York City cops called Kevin Policy and Gary Compliance. But unfortunately, we can’t.

Compliance ensures organizations stay within the parameters defined by legal rules or policies. And for instance, Data Protection, Food Safety, and Cyber Security are all examples of those policies, which require your legal compliance. I wish we were talking about cop shows, too.

You see, whatever the industry you are in, from hospitality to construction, it’s vital that you’re aware and understand the specific policies, regulations, and laws that are pertinent to you and your business.

Keeping up-to-date and compliant with these specific policies is the only way to safeguard your business and its reputation. Not to mention avoiding the potential costs and legal ramifications of non-compliance with the law, which can be massive. So, all in all, it’s necessary for legal compliance to be a top priority of any business.

The question remains then, how can you ensure your business stays on the right side of law?

Well, that’s simple. Utilize the proper policy and compliance training, obviously, professionally provided for you by Litmos Heroes.
