Transform Your Compliance Culture with Ethics Ambassadors

July 19, 2022 10:54:13 AM CDT / by Jennifer May

Want to create an Ethics Ambassadors Program, but aren’t sure where to start? Or already have one, but it needs a refresh? Never fear, Broadcat is here! A few years back, we posted a blog about getting your business to own compliance culture, and the sentiment is still very true today. No compliance team can influence their company’s culture on their own—it has to be shared with the business. You already know the best way to do this (hint: Ethics Ambassadors, in case the title didn’t give it away 😉). Now, let me show you how to get it done with PEP!

PEP Up Your Ethics Ambassadors

First, PREPARE your organization by creating a strategy and outline of what you plan to do with your Ethics Ambassadors by answering the 5Ws (who, what, where when, why) and H (how) of the program. This will help your org better understand your goals, create the buy-in you’ll need, encourage leaders to nominate rising stars to participate in the program, and ultimately support the Ethics Ambassadors in their efforts!

Next, you need to EQUIP your Ethics Ambassadors with the knowledge they need to confidently hit the ground running. Make it easy for them by providing a strong onboarding and communicating regularly about topics you want them to communicate to their teams. Then support your Ambassadors’ efforts by providing talking points and email drafts to include with any job aids or other resources they will furnish to their peers. Also, allow lots of opportunities and outlets to ask you questions and get the info they need to boldly go forth! 

And, of course, you’ll want to PROVIDE opportunities for your Ambassadors to continue to grow in their roles as organizational leaders. The Ethics Ambassador network you build is the perfect place to create open dialog, collect feedback, and establish a community of support across the organization.
