Compliance Questions

Q:

How can the company’s compliance policies be improved and/or better applied, communicated and enforced?

Answer

Compliance policies should be accessible to all employees, well communicated, and easy to understand and apply. Responses to this question can provide valuable end-user feedback in this regard. The additional area of “enforcement” may provide some insight into an organization’s ethical tone and employee perceptions about fairness and equality. A quality compliance program will assure that all violators are treated fairly, but equally. If employees perceive that management or others are “above the law,” the compliance program loses credibility.

Q:

What are the compliance- and/or ethics-related challenges you face most frequently in your current role?

Answer

This question provides information on several important aspects of a compliance program. First, it may highlight risks that the compliance officer was unaware of or didn’t fully appreciate (risk assessment). Second, it assesses how well employees are able to apply corporate policies in the context of their role (policy comprehension/retention and training effectiveness). Third, it reiterates and reinforces the employee’s understanding of risks and policies specific to them (training). Interviewees frequently struggle with this question initially and the interviewer may need to provide an obvious example of such a challenge to help the interviewee get started (i.e. gift policy, etc).
