Corporate Compliance Training

Goals

To understand the demographic makeup of corporate compliance officers who purchase corporate compliance training materials and tools for their companies.

Early Findings

Information on the demographic makeup of corporate compliance officers who purchase corporate compliance training materials and tools for their respective companies is scarce. This is because companies tend to approach the purchase of training materials as a department and not as individuals, and such responsibilities usually fall within the purview of the heads of the department or training managers.

Per your instructions, we expanded our research to focus on the demographic makeup of compliance professionals in general. Below are some of our findings:
  • Compliance officers in the US are predominantly white and female. According to DataUSA, 76.3% of compliance officers are white, while 53.4% of them are female.
  • The median age of compliance officers is 44.9 years. Male employees are generally two years older than their female counterparts.
  • According to a recent study by Accenture, high employee costs and high attrition rates are pushing firms to explore other technology options to serve as a replacement to compliance officers.
