When regulations are breached, its most often because an employee, agent or associate has gone rogue and is not following the rules, by accident or by choice. Organisations in every sector are doing very little proactively to check the actual compliance status of their people. Managers can often produce little or no firm evidence when required that their employees have signed explicitly to comply to the myriad of policies that are required of them. Emailing policies and regulations out to people and hoping they bother to read them simply does not wash anymore.
Down the line a lack of evidence of active compliance and a compliance culture may produce major legal headaches for an organisation, its reputation, its income and can lead to senior managers facing fines and personal liability law suits (e.g. SMCR). Scaremongering? A quick look at recent fines for breaches from regulatory bodies illustrates the very real dangers that you and your organisation face. Our world is becoming increasingly compliance-focused whether we like it or not and you simply cannot afford to ignore it. Like a burglar alarm, waiting until you have been broken in to is already far too late.
Mitigating your risk is critical and there is something you can do immediately. Orchestra Read and Comply™ by Signarus can be running in your organisation within a day of placing an order. For every regulation, policy, procedure and standard your organisation publishes or updates, your employees individually confirm training and state for the record that they agree to comply digitally. The Orchestra management dashboard provides you with real-time evidence of the state of your organisational compliance as well as that of each individual. This provides your organisation with the evidence you may need when things go wrong.
Compliance reports can be quickly exported and used in a myriad of evidential ways. Without this, you are leaving you and your organisation exposed every day. Better still, our unique compliance solution runs in Office 365 – the same place where your employees are actually working and not hidden away in some compliance software backwater.
Our compliance solutions work in Microsoft Office 365, Azure and on-premise to meet your current and future IT strategies. Our Read and Comply™ solution installs in one day remotely by our team if you are in a hurry. It is conveniently licensed as Software as a Service (SaaS) and attracts a simple Opex monthly fee calculated on the number of people in your organisation.
