Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week 2018
October 25th, 2018
Nexus will be participating in the national Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week, November 5-9. This week-long celebration of compliance and ethics is a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics for organizations nationwide. Companies across the country utilize this designated week for compliance staff to build awareness in ways that reinforce not just specific rules and regulations, but an overall culture of compliance. This participation in the week-long initiative includes the goals of:
Awareness– of Nexus policies and procedures, conflicts of interest, relevant laws/regulations, anonymous compliance reporting methods, the organization’s compliance and ethics staff, etc.
Recognition – of training completion, compliance and ethics successes, etc.
Reinforcement – of the culture of compliance for which Nexus strives.
Nexus Enterprises, LLC specializes in providing Utilization Management review services to the Workers Compensation and healthcare industry. We are delighted to once again participate in national Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week. During the week of November 5th, 2018, Nexus’ Compliance Department will be posting daily Compliance & Ethics blogs to the company intranet site. Each blog will contain reinforcements of Nexus’ policies and will provide examples of recent enforcement actions against other companies who have suffered the repercussions of non-compliance. In addition to the daily blogs, each team member will attend a scheduled compliance refresher training and sign an acknowledgement form. Team members will have opportunities to win prizes for answering Quiz questions that relate to the daily Compliance & Ethics blogs. This year, Nexus is taking our recognition of our internal Compliance Ambassadors a step further by asking each team member to submit a self-nomination for Compliance & Ethics Champion, an award that Nexus’ executives feel is very important. Prior to starting any role with Nexus, team members are trained on their responsibility to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of all information they have access to or come in contact with. Team members sign confidentiality and conflict of interest statements and acknowledge policies that describe the acceptable use of issued computer equipment and internet access. Nexus is excited to spend next week reinforcing our commitment to compliance continuity!
