The role of ethics and compliance officer can be isolating.
You have to investigate some of your colleagues. You have to deny some of their requests. You have to make sure they know what they are not allowed to do.
It’s no surprise that most employees don’t swing by your office just to say hello. And that was before the pandemic. For the last 2 years (and counting), most of us have been emotionally and physically isolated from our colleagues.
This is why I am very much looking forward to meeting, in person, several of my colleagues today, and to break the isolation. If you live near Hartford, Connecticut, we’d love you to join us. And if you don’t, you can still watch the livestream – but we all know it won’t be the same.
Are there other ECOs living in your town or state? Why not reach out to them and organize a meetup? Nothing fancy. A coffee shop will do.
Just to break the isolation.
