Compliance Essentials Certificate® (CEC)

Certificate Overview:
Compliance: the word that brings fear to managers’ minds. But compliance in the workplace isn’t only mandatory – it’s vital. It helps you align with rules and guidelines that protect both the business itself, and the employees’ well-being. Failing to comply with regulations can lead to fines, and can even damage your brand reputation.

1. Equality and Diversity (CME01)
What comes to mind when you think of equality and diversity? In the present day, the aims of equality and diversity in the workplace remain simple: to ensure that everyone has access to the same opportunities and the same fair treatment.

2. Sexual Harassment (CME02)
Sexual harassment certainly isn’t an easy subject to bring up, but it’s a serious issue that shouldn’t be avoided. Workplaces of all kinds need to adopt a zero-tolerance policy from the start.

3. Fire Safety Awareness (CME03)
From celebratory bonfires, to singing around the campfire and toasting yummy s’mores – we probably all have lovely memories attached to fire. But, if not controlled properly, fire can be lethal. Fires can destroy property, cause injuries etc.

4. Drug and Alcohol Abuse (CME04)
From Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman, to Shakespeare’s Bardolph, entertainment throughout history has long featured disorderly characters and their drink and drug use. Perhaps less spoken about, though, is how to handle these types of behaviors.

5. Anti-Bribery Practices (CME05)
Bribery is a term you’re likely to associate with those classic black-and-white mobster films, right? But when applied to our modern lives, it’s actually a term that businesses need to be familiar with, too.

6. Anti-Money Laundering (CME06)
As organizations increase in size and complexity, the opportunities for money laundering grow too. At the same time, regulators are becoming more watchful. In recent years, they’ve imposed penalties that ran into the billions.

7. Active Shooter (CME07)
No one wants to think about a tragedy happening in their workplace. The possibility is distinctly uncomfortable, so talking about what you might do is difficult. The unfortunate truth is that these tragedies do happen.

8. Code of Conduct - Working Well with Everyone (CME08)
It used to be that employees picked up how to act in the workplace as they went along. But guessing how to interact with others isn’t ideal. What if people don’t share the same ideas? They can get things wrong.

9. Whistleblowing (CME09)
No organization is perfect. Sometimes employees can make suggestions that can help improve their work environment. Sometimes, though, they need to go further. For example, if they witness behavior or practices that are illegal.

10. Conflict of Interest (CME10)
As organizations become larger and more complex, the possibility for conflicts of interest grows. While sometimes accidental, they’re quite common, and are generally easily managed.
