Commitment Statements

There is strong evidence from many studies in the science of behavior change to show that when an individual makes even small commitments, it becomes more difficult for that individual to act in ways that are incongruous with those commitments over time. Compliance Wave recommends the use of simple, actionable commitment statements to encourage employees, officers, and third-party agents to make such commitments.

These files contain commitment statements related to facets of a variety of corporate compliance issues. Get ideas from this list, use them in an edited form, or just take them as is. Asking employees to affirm these commitments will go a long way to effecting the changes in behavior that an effective compliance program requires.
