If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?

As I dodged the rain drops on my way to bring in the newspaper this morning (yes, I still read print - my boys and I read the sports and comics during breakfast), I thought of this old joke. And while some of you are answering, "Pilgrims," I'd argue that April showers also bring Ethics and Compliance Week 2009! (It's May 3-9 for those of you unfamiliar with this important week!)

We're planning a few cool things here to celebrate and recognize the importance of Ethics and Compliance (more to come in a later post), but I wanted to see what you all are doing in your organizations. Here's a partial list of ideas that I've collected from my discussions and email threads with some of our customers:
  • Message from CEO to workforce on importance of ethics and compliance
  • Update/New compliance posters at major locations
  • Compliance/Ethics polls posted on intranet homepage
  • Remind employees of Code of Conduct
  • Compliance Quiz/Survey - prizes to random employees who complete
  • Awareness campaign around Ethics Hotline availability
  • Voicemail message from CEO/Compliance Officer
  • Roll out new compliance training
  • Compliance word jumble or crossword puzzle - with prizes
  • Essay on Compliance/dealing with ethical dilemma - award for best submission
Post a comment here with your ideas and I'll share them with our customer base.
