High-Quality Ethics and Compliance Program (HQP) Assessment2019-07-02T13:56:04-04:00

We’ve changed the game when it comes to ethics & compliance program assessment and benchmarking.

There is a lot of talk about what it means to have an “effective” ethics and compliance program.


We cut through the chatter and established a definitive measurement framework of maturity and effectiveness of a High-Quality Ethics & Compliance Program assessment (HQP).

This isn’t our first rodeo. Our history of conducting original research and survey-work goes back to 1922. This experience and our dedication to working closely with member and non-member organizations has given us unique insight in to the needs of working E&C professionals and their programs.

The HQP Compliance Program Assessment Tool is ready to assess and benchmark your ethics and compliance program. Are you ready to use it?


Demonstrating ethics & compliance program effectiveness and improvement has historically proven to be a challenge. Knowing which data points and KPI’s are most informative and significant has eluded E&C professionals for some time. With the HQP Measurement Framework and Assessment Tool, we tell you what data to collect and have created a quantitative analysis to establish program maturity and effectiveness.

The HQP Assessment is a combination of:

  • 5 Primary measures: Principles
  • 27 Secondary measures: Supporting Objectives
  • 100+ Third-level measures: Leading Practices

The HQP Assessment is self-administered, 107 questions and only takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

The HQP Assessment is more than a report card of performance.

We developed HQP as a holistic approach toward continuous program improvement.

Assessing your program is the best first step to sustaining, improving and growing your E&C program.

This is all about knowing where you are in your program, determining what level of HQP maturity works for you, and setting a baseline for ongoing program measurement.

HQP Assessment doesn’t end there.

Make the most of ECI’s diverse network of ethics & compliance peers, colleagues and friends across industries to find out the best practices that others use to grow their E&C programs.

We are forming new Working Groups to review the HQP Assessment statistics and the outcomes of our current assessment cycle.  If you are interested in being part of one of these working groups, contact Casey Williams directly at casey@ethics.org or click here to join.
