TFL Compass is a consulting firm that provides strategic advice and implements solutions to build and cultivate effective compliance and ethics programs that meet your business goals and stakeholder and government expectations.

We work with our clients to develop and maintain programs that teach employees what the rules are, how to behave, and where to turn for help.

We understand that resources are often scarce for compliance & ethics department.  We collaborate with clients to identify the highest priority goals that need to be met and develop practical, customized, and innovative solutions.  We carefully scope these solutions so we can bill on a flat fee basis.

Typical engagements include the following:

  • Code of Business Conduct updates;
  • Legal and compliance risk assessments;
  • Training development, refinement, and delivery for all levels of employees, management, and the Board; and
  • C&E communication strategy and execution, including targeted communications for senior management and sales executives.

TFL Compass can also facilitate your team-building events and create and manage any corporate communication campaign (recent campaigns include change management related to records management).
