HURST, Texas, Nov. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In alignment with its core values, Ancora Education announced today that it will be participating in Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week, organized each year by the Society of Corporate Compliance and the Ethics & Health Care to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics by holding annual compliance and ethics trainings, auditing current processes, and introducing new policies.
As a part of its efforts, Ancora Education will be providing additional employee ethics training, offering a virtual Cookies and Coffee with Compliance event, and coordinating daily communication across the company to get employees thinking about compliance and ethics in their roles and ways to maintain the established culture of compliance at Ancora Education.
"Doing the right thing requires buy-in, commitment, and on-going training," said Ancora CEO, Michael Zawisky. "Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week is a reminder that a culture of compliance is built over time and it doesn't just happen automatically."
Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week is an extension of Ancora Education's ongoing compliance and ethics program, which is headed by Dr. Jessica Sanders, Chief Compliance Officer and Lindsay Matthews, Chief Human Resources Officer. Ancora Education has Standards of Conduct that all employees are expected to follow. The standards call on employees to conduct business with the highest sense of integrity in all circumstances and to act, at all times, with the highest degree of integrity on behalf of the Company.
A company-wide compliance and ethics education program, Achieving Compliance Excellence (ACE), is held bi-monthly and allows the organization to reinforce with employees their compliance and ethics obligations. Participation in Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week gives additional opportunity to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics and ways to further incorporate these into the Ancora culture.
"Each day there are thousands of decisions made across our workforce solutions platform. Equipping employees with the knowledge, training, and tools ensures that everyone is well-positioned to make the most ethical decision possible," said Zawisky.
