Big4, the premier social networking forum for professionals and alumni of Accenture, Andersen, BearingPoint, Capgemini, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers, PwC notes that a new poll released by Deloitte shows 57.7 percent of companies plan to focus more time and resources on compliance programs. Robert Biskup, a director in the forensic & dispute services practice of Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP says the management has led the new movement toward compliance.

He said Deloitte was seeing more and more management teams recognizing how critical their actions are in leading the way for corporate compliance efforts. He also noted commitment of so many to invest in compliance in 2012 was a good example of that new push.

However, reports that the respondents to the survey had some concerns and among them was the potential for management to override controls (17.2 percent). A percentage (14.5 percent) also worried about excessive pressure on unrealistic sales and performance expectations as challenges to the compliance programs.
