2017 July ECI Fellows Meeting

July 12 - 13, 2017

It’s the element of an E&C program that is the hardest to implement. What are the “appropriate incentives” that encourage employees to uphold your values and standards? During their summer meeting, the Fellows will delve into the science of motivation and ways to develop “the carrots” that encourage ethical conduct.

Leadership buy-in is critical if E&C is to become essential to business strategy. During their January meeting, the Fellows discussed the mindset of the C-Suite, and the competencies that are necessary for CECOs to win the support of this important group.


2016 July ECI Fellows Meeting  

July 13-14, 2016
Ethics & Compliance and the Future of Work
The Westin Crystal City, Arlington, VA

Meeting recap:
A “Gig Economy,” where independent workers perform particular “gigs” or tasks through intermediaries on a contingent or temporary basis, are loosening the traditional bounds between employers and workers.  This recent phenomenon coupled with revolutionary changes in technology are presenting new challenges for ethics and compliance officers and potentially exposing companies to greater risks of misconduct.  For two days ECI’s Fellows thought-leadership forum on “Ethics and Compliance and the Future of Work” tackled this and other emerging issues.

Fellows and subject matter experts from MIT, Deloitte, PWC, and Toronto-based Strategy and Talent Corporation, addressed such questions as how “Tone at the Top” translates to contingent workers and third party relationships, ways that outsourcing and offshoring potentially undermine organizational culture and values, and how far companies should go in providing ethics and compliance training for contractors and other third parties without creating co-employment legal issues. 
Conference participants also explored implications of the increase in the numbers of workers who are employed by a company, but perform their work remotely at home or satellite work sites.  The Fellows proposed new research initiatives on the impact of these and other evolving work relationships and agreed on the need to monitor fundamental changes in the nature and structure of work going forward to assess the impact on ethics and compliance programs.
