Ethics and Compliance Based Leadership Models: Essential to Compliance and Performance

Author: Arthur C. Taylor, Jr., CAMS-FCI

This white paper is intended to introduce an argument for greater emphasis on companies creating and establishing a culture built from ethics, values and compliance as an organizational control. Material examples and indicators, that the benefit of a value/ethics based compliance program far exceeds a rules-based compliance program and can also lead to improved employee and organizational performance, will be shared in this paper.

This paper will also introduce an argument that companies have an opportunity to aspire for more than a culture of compliance. They should instead emphasize and incentivize leaders and decision makers to guide and support their company through an ethics-based decision model.
