Most codes of conduct nowadays contain a clear statement that employees must act in accordance with applicable competition laws. That sounds nice and simple. Or does it? One of the greatest challenges for compliance professionals, lawyers and consultants alike is the fact that many employees feel that competition rules are very complex and sometimes obstructive or even counterintuitive.
The objective of any compliance program should be to increase awareness to such extent that employees at least know which actions to take in case they are faced with business dilemmas. In other words: how to move from engaging employees to wanting to learn, through training sessions to actual behaviour in accordance with company policies? How to get these complex legalistic rules into the daily DNA of the employees we are most concerned about?
