Survey on your company's focus on Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) issues. Some companies use regulatory compliance to provide insights and value while others scorn Good Governance and Risk Management compliance as beaurocratic controls. However, compliance is a fact of business life in the corporate world. Employees at all levels from the Board level to the senior management and C-level officers and most employees must understand that the GRC components are instrumental in strategy decisions, evaluating processes and business activities, and often where the future of the organisation is shaped.

We conduct this survey to scan your company's plan to update, invigorate and/or automate the Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) principles, policies and processes within the next year. Please share (anonymously) your expectations for the organisational development in your company for 2016 by taking this brief survey. Thank you!
