Compliance

We can help your company create a culture of doing things the right way. We know the impacts that legal issues can have on business, we break down the barriers to profit-making and find the opportunities of the regulation.

Compliance means abiding by laws, rules and regulations. The number of new requirements is constantly increasing with the growth in Finnish and foreign regulations – and there is no end in sight.

 

The way we see it, the purpose of compliance is by no means to prohibit everything, rather it is to guide, enable and support business. We can help your company create a culture of doing things the right way, supporting your company’s success within the framework of regulations set by society and the fair and equal treatment of customers.

More open and more ethical

A company’s customers, investors and other stakeholders are continuously calling for more open, more ethical and more transparent operations. Therefore, in addition to laws and regulations, the ways of operating and ethicalness of the business operations must also be at the core.

 

We have developed new ways to prevent regulatory, economic and reputation management risks. We actively monitor sector legislation and trends, so we often know already in advance what the authorities and your customers are requiring. Partnering with us therefore gives you a frontrunner advantage.

 

Moreover, we aren’t afraid of challenging new regulations or old ways of operating. We act as an interpreter between company management and other players when the situation so requires. As a result of our open and fair way of doing business, the company’s management can sleep their nights restfully knowing that the outsourced function is in trustworthy hands.
