Compliance and standards

​The key to compliance

Navigating the world of compliance is challenging and complex. How can corporate real estate teams ensure that their facilities management partners are up to the task?

The convergence of technology, evolving workplace needs and integrated facilities management (FM) outsourcing capabilities has ushered in a new era in corporate real estate (CRE) outsourcing: Outsourcing 4.0.

As part of this emerging partnership model, FM service providers have been transformed into strategic enterprise partners. CRE teams increasingly rely on their FM partners to provide expertise and solutions to achieve compliance objectives across regulatory, operational, contractual and ethical dimensions. The stakes are exceptionally high for FM partners, as non-compliance can be catastrophic for an organization’s people, processes and profitability.

As the complexity of compliance grows, how can FM service providers build compliance expertise and effectively partner with their clients to achieve compliance objectives? Download The Complexity of Compliance for an in-depth discussion of the four key areas of compliance, the role that standards can play in helping organizations to achieve compliance and the fundamental elements of an effective compliance program.

Demystifying the compliance conundrum: the compliance framework

It's useful to consider the following framework when evaluating your organization’s compliance program across four key dimensions. Roll over the graphic below to learn more about each dimension:

Master service agreements Labor contracts Third-party contracts Pricing agreements C o n t r a c t u a l International National Industry-specific Regional Local S t a t u t o r y a n d R e g u l a t o r y Procurement Vendor management Financial reporting Accounting Information security Data governance Safety General operations Human Resources O p e r a t i o n s a n d F i n a n c e Employees Clients Marketplace Shareholders Communities Ethics Ethics

Adopting standards: means to achieve compliance goals

Implementing standards can help your organization achieve its compliance objectives by providing a supportive governance framework, standardizing operations, and creating a straightforward approach to performance measurement and verification. To learn more about the role that standards can play in achieving compliance, please refer to the resources below.  

International Compliance Standards Guide

How can my organization adopt standards to support our compliance program and achieve business objectives?

Understanding the different types of standards is a complex undertaking, especially from a global perspective. For a primer on the different types of standards, their applications and use cases, please consult our International Standards Summary Table.
