2017 ECI Fall Best Practice Forum

Creating a Speak Up/Listen Up Culture

November 1 & 2, 2017 
Loews Chicago O’Hare Rosemont (Chicago), IL

Employee willingness to raise concerns is one of the most essential – and the most fragile – elements of your E&C program. It hinges on your success in establishing both a “speak up” and a “listen up” culture in your organization. The Fall BPF will focus on creating an environment where employees are encouraged and valued when they report suspected wrongdoing. Learn about best practices in management training and support; systems and incentives to foster speaking up; and ways to prevent retaliation.

ECI's Best Practice Forum (the next generation of the Sponsoring Partner Forum) is a unique immersion experience where you will get expert analysis on your ethics and compliance program, and valuable input from your industry peers. Multiple members of your team are encouraged to attend to participate in high-level interactive sessions from leaders and peer-to-peer sharing. Attendees will walk-away with your own action plan to bring back to your organization.

Who should attend?

Mid-level practitioners, Training specialists.
Open to members and non-members.
Members receive discounted registration.
