CONVERGE19 is in its 4th year of bringing together the world’s leading companies for 2 days of dynamic speakers, thought-provoking breakout sessions, and opportunities to connect with like-minded professionals. You will leave the conference with new resources and best practices allowing you to continue the hard work of driving ethics to the center of your business. In today’s episode I visit with Michael Williamson, Chief Compliance Officer at Pacific Dental, on his talk at Converge19, moving an Ethics & Compliance from rules-based to leverage values.

You can move your Ethics & Compliance Program beyond a rules-based, blind obedience construct by leveraging values. In this session, Michael Williamson will describe how to animate your organization’s values and create alignment behind them to foster a self-governing culture of ethics and compliance. He will make the case for inspiring employees through purpose and values to act as individual leaders based on shared beliefs rather than coercing employees through rules or motivating them through performance-based rewards and expectations. You will learn how to bring your organization’s purpose and values to life in support of an ethics and compliance culture that, minimally, will pivot your Program to a posture of proactive risk mitigation. Finally, Williamson will tie it all together to demonstrate how this helps create strategic differentiation between you and your competitors.
