Phoenix, AZ - JANUARY 7, 2013 - Corpedia, the global leader in ethics and compliance training solutions and advisory services, announced in a joint release with NYSE Euronext the launch of a critical training program, What it Means to be a U.S. Publicly Traded Company, a program developed with leading global companies for a global audience that focuses on the governance and compliance onboarding guidance immediately after a merger or acquisition with a U.S. publicly traded company.
Public companies are well aware of the importance of the policies and guidelines put in place to protect organizational assets. However, during the on boarding process post-merger or acquisition, joining employees need to be quickly "brought up to speed" on what it means to be a publicly traded company.
Preventing fraud in compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), as well as the importance of creating accurate financial statements and cooperating with internal audit in order to comply with the requirements of a stringent regulatory environment are just a few of the many topics public companies need to communicate to their workforces.
With contributions from clients Jones Lang LaSalle, AECOM, and other leading global organizations, Corpedia developed a program that will help companies thrive during the onboarding process post-merger or acquisition, providing guidelines and best practices employees need to know in order to understand the implications, responsibilities, and benefits of joining a public company.
"We recognize the need to train newly acquired employees as quickly as possible on the myriad of compliance rules and regulations. With input from global companies, Corpedia developed a program that helps organizations onboard employees post M&A as efficiently and effectively as possible," said Tim Erblich, President of Corpedia.
