Happy Compliance Officer Day (SEP 26, USA)

We launched Compliance Officer Day as a new annual event that takes place every year on September 26th designed to celebrate compliance officers and your colleagues.

Why did we organize this? Because you deserve it. It's our way of showing our appreciation for all of the work compliance officers and their teams do for their organizations. So thank you for dedicating yourself to this challenging, stressful, and important line of work. Your dedication to preventing bribery, corruption, and unethical conduct by promoting values-based behavior and encouraging people to do the right thing does not go unnoticed. You may not have superpowers, but you are all superheroes.

On this page, you'll find a number of resources we've prepared with the help of our community to help you stay effective, ease stress, battle burnout and maintain a happy and healthy work/life balance. We also invite you to join the conversation on Twitter and LinkedIn with the #ComplianceOfficerDay hashtag to see how people around the world are celebrating.
