Most E&C professionals warn their business leaders against compliance programs that simply check the box.
The reality is that many E&C professionals simply check the box too. They wait for Corporate to set the tone, write the policies, create the training, implement the controls and schedule the audits. They do as they are told and nothing more. When their business unit pushes back, they simply say “Corporate wants this.”
If that’s you, then perhaps you should look for a successor, someone who is guided by principles, not systems.
