As compliance professionals, we’ve all had our fair share of awkward moments! In fact, there are so many that you could probably make a bingo card out of them.
So we did! (Actually, two!)

Here’s a sneak peek of a few awkward moments (hat tip to our customers and fans for providing some of these!):
The solution to every issue is to write a policy or create an e-learning module
Someone insists “your system” must not be capturing their training completion

Got Bingo? Hey, awkward moments happen. If you are faced with these kinds of situations occasionally (we’ve all been there!), remember that YOU are being paid to develop an effective compliance program. And that means you “shall be given adequate resources, appropriate authority, and direct access to the governing authority or an appropriate subgroup of the governing authority.”

Nearly all of them could be eliminated by having your senior leadership team and Board of Directors agree on making an effective compliance program a priority.
