Compliance in Seventeen Syllables

Being a compliance pro can bring out all the feels. One day, you’re on top of the world because your Board gave you a shout-out at the last quarterly meeting for improving speak-up metrics.🌟

The next, you’re sending out job applications to run skee-ball at any Chuck E. Cheese within a 50-mile radius because you’re so over people ignoring your training reminders. 🐭 

It’s the kind of emotional roller coaster that inspires the world’s greatest poetry ➡️ And that’s exactly why we’re sharing some compliance poems of our own for International Haiku Poetry Day!
