Integrity & Awareness Week November 8 -12, 2021, Celebrating HSC’s Commitment to Doing the Right Thing
November 9, 2021
 

Greetings from the Office of Institutional Integrity and Awareness

Starting Nov 8-12th, HSC along with many other organizations across the United States and internationally will Celebrate Integrity and Awareness Week. We will utilize this time to reflect on the ongoing commitment to our ethical culture, our values and high trust behaviors that support HSC’s mission and vision.

Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week began 19 years ago by the Healthcare Compliance Association (HCCA) as a way to educate employees about the importance of compliance and ethics in organizations. Compliance Day quickly grew into designating a Compliance Awareness Week. In 2005, the HCCA Board of Directors and the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) Advisory Board launched the first National Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week. This year organizations will focus on the core principles of Awareness, Recognition and Reinforcement.

Having a week designated to corporate compliance and ethics allows compliance and ethics (C&E) professionals to focus on the culture of compliance and not just the rules and regulations.

The Office of Institutional Integrity and Awareness (formerly known as the Office of Institutional Compliance and Integrity) creates an integrity-based approach program that emphasizes responsibility for ethical behavior and commitment to our Code of Culture. By utilizing this proactive approach, we demonstrate the consistency of our values in action with choices and decisions as an institution and individually.

In support of Integrity and Awareness Week, the Office of Institutional Integrity and Awareness will be hosting a variety of activities that continue to build and strengthen our ethical culture. You are encouraged to participate. Please see below for a list of scheduled events and activities.
