Earlier this year, our client Volkswagen, represented by Hiltrud D. Werner, Board Member for Integrity & Legal Affairs, and Tobias Heine, Head of Together4Integrity, held a keynote speech at the annual ECI Impact event. They gave detailed insights into integrity management at Volkswagen. There, the Integrity Index® was surveyed and the Integrity Perception Workshops® were implemented. Due to the great interest of the audience in the presentation, a separate Q&A session was held a few weeks later, also with our founder and Managing Director Katja Nagel.

How can integrity and compliance be sustainably anchored in the corporate DNA?
Tobias Heine, Head of Together4Integrity at Volkswagen, addressed this question in his presentation at the “Bundeskongress Compliance” last November. By establishing a holistic integrity and compliance management system in the Volkswagen Group, the corporate culture was transformed. This was made possible, among other things, by the use of the Integrity Index®, which analyzes the current integrity status, enabling targeted improvement measures to be initiated and improvements to be tracked. The Integrity Perception Workshops® also aided the transformation at Volkswagen Group by measuring and understanding the employee’s perception on the topic of integrity. The GOII was an official sponsor of the event. The “Bundeskongress Compliance” is a yearly conference of integrity and compliance professionals in Germany.
