Identifying and eliminating risks in your company. Why is it important?

Nowadays, the business environment is becoming more transparent and more and more importance is attached to the reputation of the merchant and the honesty, ethicality, compliance with the principles of good practice and requirements of applicable law.

What’s the benefit?

The purpose of the compliance program is to ensure that the conduct of company managers and employees does not pose a risk of violation of rights and does not harm the company or other natural or legal persons.

The company pursues a targeted strategy that focuses on the behavior of the company and its employees, which complies with the laws, ethics and business practice principles, not only protects the company from the negative consequences of violations, but also ensures a positive reputation and credibility of the company. In addition, as a result of these targeted actions, employee satisfaction increases, loyalty and even a sense of pride in the company are promoted because everyone wants to work in a workplace that is organized, safe and socially responsible.

How does the compliance program work?

Compliance guidelines in easy-to-understand language for company employees explain applicable regulatory enactments and requirements, provide advice on avoiding violations, and provide a set of rules that significantly reduce the chance of violation.

In order for the Compliance Guidelines to identify the risk factors in their daily lives and to find the right action model, every employee of the company should become familiar with the content of the Compliance Guidelines, both as regards the applicable legal framework and the expected actions of the employee in such a situation.

Compliance guidelines are a complement to the company’s agenda rules and are binding on every employee. Violation of the rules of compliance guidelines may lead to the prosecution of a person through disciplinary action, including termination of employment, as well as civil liability: the obligation to indemnify for damage and to compensate for damage to the reputation of the company. In some cases, violation of the terms of the Compliance Guidelines may be the basis for prosecution or criminal liability.

The company manager will be able to make sure that every employee in the company has passed the test and the test results confirm that the employee is familiar with the content of the Compliance Guidelines, correctly understands the rules set out therein, and is able to choose the actions to follow.

The Compliance Guidelines consist of several mutually compatible modules in different fields:
