Have you ever heard of compliance? This word comes from the word comply, and represents the act of obeying an established rule because you agree with it. It´s different from professional order, that is, it isn´t an imposition, but accepted by those who conform to the internal and external commands, rules and regulations. And why does this have an impact on the life of those who must make an international move? Because, guided by the Code of Conduct and by the Company Policies, the compliance causes avoid illegalities in the processes – specially when there is a great challenge, such as an international move – reducing the incidents of frauds and increasing the efficiency of the services rendered.
The example is simple: Would you open your house, with everything you´ve bought with your hard-earned money, and leave it in the hands of strangers? Although the obvious answer is “no”, it isn´t what actually happens. Yes, because we do leave our homes in the hands of strangers, as long as there is some guarantee of trust behind it. This happens whenever someone does some kind of work in your house, including the company responsible for your move. Specially if it is an international move, involving long distances and many legal operations.
And how is this relation of trust established? With a transparency of the company in its business and the ethics of its professional relationships, all based on the mechanisms of compliance. Compliance practices are not only a legal imposition, since they are, basically, the foundation stone in building up an ethical company culture. In other words, the mechanisms of compliance does not remain in the field of ideas, but are essentially collaborative and are continually improved.
Thus, as they are part of the professional essence of each of the company´s employees, compliance practices are completely related to the organizations core business. That is, in the case of moving and relocation companies, the responsibility of transporting their client´s goods to anywhere in the world with professionalism, but also with care and respect as if those goods were the personal belongings of each and every employee.
It is very clear that if the compliance practices are absorbed by the employees as absolute truth and not as an imposition – that they don´t always agree with – the chances for the success of the business are infinitely greater. This is because, guided by ethics, integrity and transparency, there is the guarantee of the commitment to improving the mechanism of detection, correction and prevention of errors and ethical misconduct. Thus, everyone wins: the company, in image, the employees in personal satisfaction and, mainly, the clients, who are assured of the success of their goes, when they hire their services.
Using a service that is known for its compliance and its strong legal concern makes your life easier in many respects, specially when your goal is moving to another country.
