I work for a company that provides many services that are regulated under some arm form compliance- from employment eligibility verification to use of arrest records to drug screening practices to EEO and OFCCP hiring practices, and on and on and on.
I woke up today thinking about writing a blog post (jasonblais.com is my wordpress blog if you're interested in taking a look) about compliance and Human Resources. A while back I had posited that compliance should truly be pulled from HR's responsibilities so HR can focus on talent acquisition and retention, and post called From HR to Talent Acquisition and Retention. As I was thinking about my post today, I really began thinking of all the angles where compliance comes into play for a human resources professional.
So I wanted to ask this group for some simple feedback. When you hear the word 'compliance', what's the first thing, or first part of your business that comes to mind?
