HR compliance is a process. It's a way of defining proper individual and group behaviors, and assuring that laws and policies are understood and followed. This means you must know the laws and develop appropriate policies in relation to these laws. Compliance also means you and your managers need to communicate these policies to the troops, along with your expectations for adherence and the consequences for non adherence. The latter requires specific investigative and punishment procedures.
Effective HR compliance programs need to be integrated into your business strategies and given more than just lip service. Compliance has to start at the top and trickle down to all levels, so everyone in the company knows that the workplace must be kept safe and discrimination won't be tolerated.
Join us as our experts examine a few of the Legal Compliance issues that HR executives need to be aware of in 2010.
David McLean, Vice President(World Travel Protection Canada Inc.)
Corporate travel is a necessity in a global economy. So is ensuring the safety of your employees. And with an increasingly uncertain world, this can prove stressful, disruptive and logistically challenging.
This presentation offers insight into the evolution of travel risk management approaches that assist the enterprise with this critical duty of care, and will focus on one of these brought to the market recently by Zurich Financial Services’ emergency assistance company, World Travel Protection. Recognizing that traveling employees seek peace of mind prior to and during their travels, and the enterprise seeks to mitigate employee’s exposure to risk, Nomadz® was developed to serve both purposes. Nomadz®, is the first proactive, location-aware assistance service delivered through the convenience of a BlackBerry® offering the traveler location-specific alerts and the enterprise the ability to identify a traveler’s proximity to risk using both their reservation destination as well as their actual GPS location.
