The birth of standards
The biggest construction project of its time, the Sydney Harbour Bridge was not only proof of a nation pulling itself up by the bootstraps through infrastructure, it was proof of the need for industrial safety standards. SAI Global’s business was born out of the need to better protect the lives of people and workers.
A global impact
SAI Global begins its expansion beyond Australia, entering 31 countries across 60-plus languages and adding assurance and compliance to their capabilities through the acquisition of the Australian Quality Council. SAI Global is formed.
SAI Global begins a legacy of leading in EHS, helping customers manage risk and create safer work cultures. The acquisition of Cintellate laid the foundation for what would become the EHS component on the SAI360 platform.
Creating cultural change
SAI Global brings employee behavior into their ethics and compliance, rounding out a 360 approach with learning programs designed to train staff and help them take the right action within organizations. Building from the acquisition of Integrity Interactive, SAI Global begins a legacy of affecting real cultural change in ethics and compliance.
Serving the public trust
Continuing a legacy of service for the public good, SAI Global expands into food safety, bringing its reputation as a standard-bearer of assurance into food, agriculture and consumer goods with the acquisitions of FoodCheck Ltd. and Advanced Food Safety Pty Ltd.
Staying ahead of regulatory change
SAI Global brings risk management and services into U.S. Healthcare, establishing its first compliance tool and enabling customers to stay ahead of the rapidly shifting regulatory landscape. Through the acquisition of Compliance360, SAI Global begins offering Risk and Learning to Chief Compliance Officers and General Counsel alike.
The forefront of digital risk
Digital risk capabilities are added as SAI Global’s growth and innovation continues. With the acquisition of Modulo, SAI Global brings risk and compliance into cybersecurity, data privacy and GDPR. Later that year Barings Asia acquires SAI Global, furthering its commitment to leadership at the global level.
Relocation and continued growth
In 2017, SAI Global moves its headquarters to Chicago, a U.S. hub of technology and innovation. The following year the company launches SAI360 and acquires Strategy BCP, adding Business Continuity Management into their portfolio of capabilities.
A single partner
SAI Global furthers its presence in financial services by adding a robust internal audit and regulatory compliance offering, effectively becoming the most complete integrated approach to risk management on the market. Through the acquisition of BWise from Nasdaq, the company rounds out its capabilities in the GRC space and furthers its position as a market leader.
Adapting to COVID-19
Throughout the most challenging year in recent history, SAI Global continued to support customers by standing up pandemic preparedness resources, templates, and remote and virtual audits.
