Ethics & Compliance
Program Assessment Services

Gain insights into the effectiveness of your compliance program, learn how it compares to leading practices
and chart a path to improvement.

A Comprehensive Review
of Your Program

Our Compliance Program Assessment looks at your corporate governance systems and ethics and compliance program. The result? A detailed findings report and executive presentation that identifies gaps and includes recommendations to reduce risk and improve business practices.


Identify how your program aligns with the hallmarks of an effective compliance program outlined by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, and international regulations.


Benchmark your program using data from the World’s Most Ethical Companies and determine where your program is in line with leading practices–and where gaps may exist.


Utilize the practical and actionable roadmap included in the final report to help prioritize program initiatives, intelligently allocate current resources, and plan for future investment.

“A lot of the things we’ve developed have come from being part of Ethisphere’s community and getting these assessments, because that’s where we hear about the importance of training and get ideas about what other companies are doing.”

–Mark Ohringer Executive Vice President, Global General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, JLL
