Governance, Risk and Compliance

In today’s competitive business landscape where change is the only constant, organisations must be equipped to take well-informed risks, ensure company-wide compliance and execute good governance to enable them to grow and succeed.

Joined-up advice 

Organisations in both the public and private sectors are under greater scrutiny from regulators, the media and, increasingly, the public. It is no longer enough to focus on profits or delivering services well, organisations are judged on other criteria, including their behaviour, morals and ethics.

Demonstrating a holistic and coherent approach to governance, risk and compliance that will stand up to both external and internal scrutiny is essential. This approach is key to protecting brand, reputation and credibility.

At MHA MacIntyre Hudson, we understand organisational changes are part of an evolution driven by technological development, data, automation and cybersecurity. That is why we have bought our governance, risk and compliance services together into a single service line. This allows us to offer the joined-up advice our clients need to embed a joined-up strategy in their organisation.

What makes us different?

Here at MHA MacIntyre Hudson, our approach is all about putting our client at the centre of everything we do.

We listen first because the needs of every organisation are unique and it is your needs that will shape the way that we work with you. Through discussions with your senior staff and gaining an understanding of the nature, size and complexity of your organisation we can offer you potential solutions to the challenges that you may be facing.

We work with clients in both the public and private sectors, and across all industry sectors. While we see overlap in the mounting external pressures that all our clients face, we craft solutions based on our knowledge and understanding of each individual organisation.

Through our membership of Baker Tilly International, we can access that specialist knowledge and expertise in more than 130 countries. We can be on hand to support and advise your organisation, wherever you need to us be.

How can we help you?

In today’s fast-paced world, businesses have to evolve and adapt to new ways of doing business to remain competitive. Strong, joined-up governance lays the foundations for an organisation to thrive despite these pressures.

Taking on new processes and systems, however, opens up more commercial and regulatory risk. Getting ahead of these issues and identifying them early is the difference between success and failure.

We will be with you every step of the way and will ensure any solutions are effective by assessing, monitoring and bench marketing against best practice.
