Compliance Professionals Share Insights on Revitalizing Codes of Conduct

A company’s code of conduct is the bedrock of a strong compliance program but it cannot be set in stone. Companies need to reevaluate and periodically update their codes to ensure their relevance. A recent panel discussion at Ethisphere’s 8th Annual Global Ethics Summit looked at the experiences of three large corporations in updating and upgrading their codes of conduct, focusing on the key issues they faced in the process. The program was moderated by Ed Petry, vice president at NAVEX Global, and featured Megan Belcher, vice president and chief counsel at ConAgra Foods, Bettye J. Hill, vice president and chief ethics and compliance officer at Oshkosh Corporation, and Peter Loftspring, assistant general counsel and chief compliance manager at Black & Veatch Corporation. This article summarizes the key takeaways from the program.
