Compliance

The public is highly sensitive as to whether companies comply with the laws and regulations governing responsible corporate governance. Indeed, compliance has long been a solid component of good corporate governance, which is not merely a question of abiding by all the laws and regulations. Instead, compliance is also part of value- and values-driven corporate management. Although for a long time, compliance was only an issue for large multinationals, it is now important for mid-sized companies as well. It is not only a question of avoiding financial risks, criminal sanctions and damage to the company's reputation while protecting its property and shareholders' assets, but also of recognizing opportunities that compliance can bring with it, in connection with process and tax optimization or the company's reputation as a business partner and an attractive employer.

Mid-sized com­pa­nies ope­rate dif­fer­ently than large com­pa­nies: mid-sized com­pa­nies address stra­te­gic issues dif­fer­ently because they are more fle­xi­ble and less focu­sed on pro­cess. In addi­tion, mid-sized com­pa­nies are cha­rac­te­ri­zed by flat hier­ar­chies, visionary lea­ders and often pri­vate ownership. For these rea­sons com­p­li­ance looks dif­fe­rent in mid-sized com­pa­nies, and the rigid com­p­li­ance sys­tems used by the big play­ers can­not sim­ply be impo­sed on their mid-sized coun­ter­parts. Ins­tead, mid-sized com­pa­nies need a com­p­li­ance sys­tem with a lean orga­niza­tion and a modu­lar struc­ture.
