Training helps make compliance, ethics an organizational strength

Social services organizations are often faced with complex matters regarding compliance and are held to a high expectation for ethical practice in the workplace. Because it is impossible to monitor compliance 100 percent of the time, ethics and compliance have to go hand in hand: Compliance means conforming to rules, specifications, policies, standards and laws, while ethics are the moral principles that govern a person’s or group’s behaviors.

In the training Compliance and Ethics: A Valuable Partnership in Social Services taking place Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Worcester, will help a wide variety of staff - including executive leadership, IT managers, operations managers, compliance officers, human resources managers, program directors and others - understand how compliance and ethics work together to strengthen your organization.

In this seminar, trainer Heidi Ferreira,  J.D., Vice President of Risk Management, Evaluation, and Outcomes at The Home for Little Wanderers, will cover:

  • Mandated reporting: When are you required to report suspected abuse and neglect, and to whom?
  • Confidentiality: HIPAA/ Massachusetts Privacy Laws:  What’s the difference and why do you need to know?
  • Boundaries: Maintaining boundaries, and the risks involved when you overstep them; and
  • Social media: The pros and cons of how it has changed the work that you do.
