Business compliance is a vastly complex area of the working world, and as a result, it’s home to a huge array of roles and responsibilities. Navigating the ever-evolving regulatory laws can be extremely difficult without the help of a talented and dependable compliance function, especially when the evolution of modern tech changes the face of business on what seems like an everyday basis.
Compliance jobs can include titles such as ethics officer, compliance manager, financial compliance officer, compliance monitoring administrator, and many others. In the business protection space, many roles tend to overlap. From increased productivity to greater rates of employee satisfaction, a great compliance function doesn’t just benefit the backend of the business, it enriches every aspect of the operation.
Investing in compliance shows that business cares about the employees and the safety of the brand, acting as a good morale booster and an extra line of defence against outside (and inside) threats. In the financial sector, compliance professionals are responsible for ensuring that markets are as fair and transparent as possible, while making sure to adhere to any outside regulatory requirements. Without the talents of these individuals, organisations would not be scrutinised for unethical practices, and ultimately, the consumer is the one who pays the price.
In the UK, financial compliance is monitored incredibly closely – failure to comply with the stringent regulations can result in more than just substantial fines. Poor compliance practice can leave companies susceptible to lawsuits and open to financial crime.
There are many different types of financial compliance risk to watch out for too, five of which include:
To ensure that your business remains compliant as it evolves, you’ll need to have the right people on board.
A great compliance officer makes sure that your processes keep in line with every regulation, both internally and externally, and that your business keeps up with the times.
