For example, consider the substantial risks of faulty social security legal status classifications of employees. They can be found but in administrative processes across the enterprise. Compliance means compliance with mandatory law and recognized ethical standards within the company. These rules are the employees usually through training events or 0 It is responsible to provide prescribed information to the employment agency or the heavy representation of disabled people. The question could well be: in the company who assumes responsibility for a such overarching process organization? Risk reduction is the primary objective of compliance management integrated in the company. The media coverage of recent times however impressively demonstrated us that this not always possible.
Even compliance certified company with competent departments, can protect insufficiently against the risk of breach of compliance and frequently resulting scandals and compensation processes. Possibly the classic compliance management falls just short approach. Among the four commonly mentioned tasks of a compliance organization: the provision of procedures for the identification of risks the deployment of an internal information system the establishment of internal and external communication the introduction of an internal control system. A such compliance management based primarily on information and communication, organization or even control is out of the question. It would be important that an effective compliance influence takes organization more directly to business processes. With the help of Six Sigma projects you could come closer to this concern.
In addition to the aim of a general quality improvement of administrative processes, could consistently defects in compliance work on out point of view. The two corporate goals, optimization and compliance of administrative processes not contrary to each other, they can represent rather a powerful tool combined approach, which helps to make long-term sustainable companies. In addition to the achieved compliance, processes optimized in this way help to reduce costs, save time and increase flexibility. Compliance and efficiency can reconcile itself if a holistic perspective is taken in the process analysis and optimization and the Compliance quality not from the eye is lost. Especially medium-sized companies could quickly absorb the changing compliance requirements due to their agility and innovation strength and quickly implement in such a tuning procedure.
