Thank you for your interest in ECI’s High-Quality Program (HQP) Assessment Tool.

What is High-Quality Program (HQP) Assessment?

The High-Quality Program Assessment (HQP) Tool is the definitive way to benchmark and measure the success of your ethics and compliance program. HQP Assessment allows you to:

  • Identify strengths and weaknesses of your E&C program.
  • Compare your benchmarks to other organizations in your industry.
  • Track your program success and improvement over time.

The HQP assessment is completed online, is approximately 100 questions, and should take 30-45 minutes to complete.  Following your completion of the assessment survey, your results are immediately available by selecting the “Spider Chart” in the tool. These results can be printed or downloaded as both a PDF, and a PNG for easy insertion into PowerPoint, Word or email.

How do I take the HQP Assessment?

Step 1: Determine which HQP Assessment version is best for your organization.

The Ethics & Compliance Initiative is offering two versions of the HQP Assessment – one for larger organizations (corporate) – generally defined as those with greater than 500 employees, as well as a dedicated E&C function – and the other for small to mid-size enterprises (SME) – generally defined as those with fewer than 500 employees, who do not have a dedicated E&C function, or have one that is less substantial.

When you register for the Assessment, please ensure to let us know whether the corporate or SME Assessment is best suited for you.

Step 2: Fill out the form below.

Once you fill out the form, you will receive a unique ID and link to take the HQP Assessment. This assessment is normally $500 and is just one part of ECI’s suite of services supporting High-Quality Ethics & Compliance Programs (HQPs).

Please allow up to 3 days to receive your login credentials and instructions by email.  If you have any questions please contact us at myhqp@ethics.org.

Step 3: Take the Assessment

Although this is not the “multi-user” version of our assessment, you may want to consider gathering a group of knowledgeable individuals from your organization to review the questions and formulate a common answer.

What are the next steps?

Review your assessment results. Using the HQP Assessment report, you will have a snapshot view of your E&C program’s maturity.  Use your results to view comparisons against the overall benchmark of organizations who have taken the HQP Assessment.

ECI provides opportunities to discuss and disseminate your HQP results with other E&C leaders at our IMPACT Annual Benchmarking Event. Members receive discounted attendance to IMPACT and other ECI events.
