By now, you've been inundated with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) information. You know that you need a "Whistleblower" solution. That is, SOX requires a system that employees can use to report complaints and concerns confidentially, and that makes sure those complaints are received, tracked, reported and acted on appropriately.
So, you've got a couple of decisions: do it yourself or outsource, and when to start.
There are compelling reasons to outsource - and we created The Compliance Partners just for that reason. And, since we created The Compliance Partners from the ground up just to assist companies with SOX compliance, we have the most comprehensive solution, our costs are competitive, we can customize to your requirements and you can be live in hours.
Firms like yours need:
- A solution that provides multiple communication methods including voice, email and web forms.
- Trained professionals receiving the communications from your employees. Professionals who recognized the difference between minor issues and issues that need attention and escalation right now.
- A provider that can reduce the risk of your company being charged with reprisal under Sarbanes-Oxley. (Just reducing this exposure - which has risks not only for companies but also subjects management personally to very substantial fines - makes outsourcing the far superior solution).
- Multilingual capability
- A provider that understands Audit Committees and how issues should be handled at the Board level.
- Competitive pricing
- 24/7 coverage
You can get all of this for as little as $1,500 per year from us.
