Keeping up its tradition of encouraging employees to follow the highest of standards, Behavioral Health Group announced today that it will be participating in Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week, organized each year by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics & Health Care Compliance Association (SCCE & HCCA). As a part of its efforts Behavioral Health Group will be providing team members with new and interesting information about compliance and ethics in the workplace and will be holding various contests with the opportunity for team members to win prizes. The first annual Integrity Award will be given to a team member nominated by a peer for outstanding displays of integrity in the workplace, and the Compliance Department will be presenting the new branding to the organization.
Jay Higham, BHG’s Chief Executive Officer, shares that “Having a clear understanding of the expectations around corporate compliance lets each of us stay focused on BHG’s broader goals and help operations run smoothly. Maintaining compliance equips us to do our jobs well, reach our career goals, and keep patients safe and happy. In turn, BHG can achieve its goals and grow faster.”
Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week is an extension of Behavioral Health Group’s ongoing compliance and ethics program, which is headed by Marlin Martin, Sr. Vice President of Regulatory and Clinical Affairs.
Company-wide compliance and ethics education, held at the time of hire and again annually allows BHG to roll-out new and updated compliance and ethics program policies and reinforce with employees their compliance and ethics obligations. Participation in Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week gives additional opportunity to shine a spotlight on the importance of compliance and ethics and boost compliance culture.
