A Culture of Compliance



By Steve Day and Ted Rogers

As the independent representative to the settlement transaction, we need to instill a sense of confidence in the consumer. A key to this is the development of a culture of compliance within our organizations.

In today’s environment, operations struggle with the challenge of increased regulatory scrutiny and enforcement, while noting others in the marketplace that choose to deal in questionable activities to gain market presences.

Due to the social media world, one ethical lapse by a member of an organization can almost instantaneously expose it to the entire online world. By seeking to create a culture of compliance within their operations, leading edge companies are taking proactive steps to avoid the embarrassment and potential loss of business that can result. 

Most importantly, this direction must be a focus for every employee within our organizations—which is certainly a challenge!

At ALTA’s Annual Convention, we will have an open discussion on the challenges, internally and externally, to a culture of compliance, highlight the dangers of non-compliance, and focus on marketing our agencies as focused on the best interest of the consumer!
