Learn to identify compliance and integrity risks

Module Compliance: Organisational Culture & Behavioural Risk

In this module, you will learn all about compliance and integrity risks.

Module Organisational culture and behavioural risk

Human behaviour can drive organisations and teams to great achievements, integrity and prosperity, but human behaviour can also lead to issues and problems. An important underlying cause of many problems, fines, scandals and inertia to change is rooted in human behaviour and the culture in many organisations. This implies that to be effective and integer organisations need to understand human behaviour. In the remit of risk,  compliance and audit it means that compliance officers nowadays should be much more on top of the potential risks of human behaviour and organisational culture for the organisations' performance and integrity. These behavioiural risks need to be identified, assessed and managed across the organisation

In this module you will learn to look at the organisation through a behavioural lens. We will focus on what’s visible and easier to detect but we will also deep dive into the informal drivers of behaviour. Factors that are less visible and tangible yet very influential on the behaviours of employees and leaders.
