Compliance Officers Effecting Change

Corporate compliance is a hot button issue. People all over the world routinely complain about corporate malfeasance and the damage it does to people, communities, and the planet. This has led local, state, and national governments to craft and enact new laws and stiffer penalties for companies guilty of non-compliance in a number of areas. These changes can be expensive and companies are not taking them lightly. One of the most effective and proactive steps companies make is to hire compliance officers. And these compliance officers are effecting change in a number of significant ways that help both the companies, their customers, and the communities in which they does business.

Compliance officers help to craft policies and practices designed to protect the public from harm and the company from expensive litigation. Compliance officers are also charged with making sure those policies and practices are followed by all employees. It is often like management by walking around. An effective compliance officer not only creates policy, they study its viability and interact with employees at all levels to see if those policies and practices are being adhered to and how that is affecting the employees, the business, the customers, and the bottom line.

One company that made a brilliant hire at Chief Compliance Officer is Hall Capital Partners. They hired Helane Morrison, arguably the perfect compliance officer. Morrison as a law degree from the University of California, Berkley. She has worked for Appellate and Supreme court justices, and was a partner in the San Francisco based law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. While all of this work gave Morrison a solid background to prepare her for the position of CCO of Hall Capital Partners, her next job made her the ideal candidate to become a compliance officer.

After 10 years with he law firm, Helane Morrison left to become the Securities and Exchange Commission’s San Francisco Regional Office’s head of regional enforcement. In that role she investigated companies throughout Alaska, Idaho, Northern California, Northern Nevada, Oregon, Montana, and Washington for signs of fraud, insider trading, and compliance with a whole host of laws. She was also in charge of the SEC’s examination and enforcement programs. After 11 years at the SEC, Helane Morrison left and became the CCO of Hall Capital Partners. Since 2007 she has helped the company to craft and continue to comply with the requisite laws.

Venezuela Prolongs Two-Day Workweek

As recently reported by Reuters, Venezuela is in the middle of an energy crisis that threatens the economic and political stability of the country. Venezuela relies on hydro-electricity to power up most of the country, so a drought of the magnitude that the country is currently experiencing is a serious problem. There have been food and medicine shortages throughout the country with little hope of improvement in the near future.
As a way of curtailing energy use and trying to conserve resources, the government of Venezuela instituted a two-day workweek for government sector employees starting in March. Given that the situation has not improved, the government is now extending the two-day workweek for the public sector for an additional two weeks. This affects about 2.8 million employees in Venezuela. Expert Manuel Gonzalez sees mounting concerns over how these employees will afford to feed themselves and their families with the burden of more austerity measures from the national government. President Maduro has been the subject of widespread criticism for his failure to adequately address this situation and restore calm to the country. Critics of President Maduro say that the austerity measures are not enough to have a real impact on the energy usage in the country. His critics also lament that these austerity measures only serve to deepen the economic recession that is plaguing the country right now. There are reports from Linked In people clamoring for a more long term solution.

Testing out Wen by Chaz

When it comes to high profile haircare products, it is hard to get any higher than Wen by Chaz. With WEN Hair, individuals receive a top of the line product, yet it is not something available in stores. It can only be purchased directly through the sephora website, and this comes with a subscription (although the subscription can be cancelled at any time). For someone who is interested in the product, it is important to know how it is going to affect their hair and what all it takes to receive the quality hair after finishing using the product. All of this is important as it is not the cheapest product on the market. So, knowing how it is going to interact with someone and their hair is vital.

First of all, it is very important for anyone considering using Wen hair to understand it is going to not be a shampoo. This is one of the biggest misconceptions people have with the product. For whatever reason, people purchase WEN Hair from Amazon and immediately assume it is going to be the shampoo. The fact of the matter is, it is not a shampoo but a conditioner. It is designed to inject hair with large amounts of vitamins and minerals hair requires to grow strong and to become fuller and thicker. The shampoo is designed more for removing oil and other buildup found in the hair. That is why anyone who is looking for the product needs to still use their own shampoos while using Wen by Chaz.

WEN Hair is especially thick, but as long as someone spends the necessary time removing the conditioner from the hair and rinsing it out, they should have no problem and will enjoy a fuller, thicker head of hair whenever they rinse out.
