Compliance Survey Center

The OIG recommends using surveys to better understand employees’ knowledge and perceptions of your compliance program. Our Compliance Knowledge Survey was designed by experts under the direction of the former HHS Inspector General. This comprehensive survey measures employees’ understanding of your compliance program through 30 questions and dichotomous answers. Clients receive a detailed report with an analysis of each question, and we benchmark your results against other organizations who used the same survey. To learn more, visit the Compliance Survey Center page.
