In the current age of access to various mediums and information, it is easy to sway the attention of the human mind towards ensuring 'Culture of Zero Tolerance'.  At Vibe Consulting we believe the key to sustaining Policy Adherence is through replacement of 'Positive thought processes' rather than reprimanding employees for deviant behaviours.

At Vibe Consulting we have developed strategies which looks into the practices of the Risk functions by understanding the depth of their communication. We customized tool measures the following:
1. Political stock of the personnel of the risk function in a firm
2. Belief and ownership of risk goals of the Business leaders in a firm
3. Presence of Business risk champions
4. Knowledge of policies and processes
5. Resource allocation towards awareness of policies and processes

The premise of the measurement is based on the standard risk matrix of LOW, MEDIUM HIGH AND EXTREME.
These assessment has used by our clients as a start point to begin process / systemic change management programme. Through this assessment we develop Perception / Change Management strategies to build a Culture of Adherence
1. Simplification of Policies
2. Connect with Business goals
3. Co-own and Co-develop strategies of Policy adherence
4. Build a sustained interactive platform

In our experience, we have seen in organizations been able to reduce their violations between 50 to 60% through a year's intervention.
