[Listen again] Using ethics and values to rebuild, not just recover, from corporate crisis

What you'll learn on this podcast episode

Stories of compliance failures aren’t strangers to news outlets or entertainment networks. But while the circumstances can make for great media headlines, what is arguably more interesting is watching how those companies respond. In this episode of the Principled Podcast, host Emily Miner is joined by Carlos Villagrán Muñoz, Gerente de Compliance (Director of Compliance) at CMPC. Listen in as the two discuss how, over the past decade, CMPC has sought to not just recover from a significant compliance failure, but rebuild—stronger—by focusing on ethics, culture, and values.
