Compliance Management in a Balanced Scorecard approach

Compliance management is the process of ensuring activities across the organization are in line with laws, regulations, and requirements. Requirements are set by a comprehensive collection of entities, including governments, regulatory and industry bodies, and employee unions. Every organization/business must follow rules that require them to perform corporate activities ethically and safely, these rules include all outside regulatory, and legal requirements as well as internal policies. Compliance management involves the procedures and policies used to reduce the risk. This is a documentation exercise and its aim is to protect a company from damage which can be high financial penalties.

Companies can implement compliance software to automate compliance processes. It is an ongoing process of monitoring and assessing systems. Compliance management is important to prevent noncompliance and other damages to the company/business. To do a successful monitor for your business you need to Assess, Organize, Remediate and Report.

Compliance management is usually taken as a standalone process and not attached to strategy execution.  Due to this approach, there is a possibility that the compliance requirements can create problems in business continuity and also introduce risks.  Hence compliance requirements have to be managed as part of strategy execution and it should be part of the strategy review process as a subtopic.

Compliance managers have some responsibilities such as;

  • Manage and supervise control systems
  • Create a strategy for preventing damages to legal rules
  • Internal policies guidelines
  • Estimate the efficiency of controls
  • Identify risks or non-conformity issues
  • Design, improve and implement productive and efficient company policies
  • Team up and maintain continuous communication with the HR department
  • Improve current strategies (if necessary)
  • Periodically revise procedures, reports, etc.
  • Manage colleague works
  • Identify compliance issues and give necessary training
