Senior Executive Accountability Regime: The HR Perspective

We are delighted to have Jennifer Cahill, Partner and Co-Founder, Savvi Recruitment Consultants; Majella Walsh, Head of Compliance for Ireland, Barclays; and Susan Doris-Obando, Senior Associate, Matheson deliver a webinar on the proposed Individual Accountability Regime and the practical implications for HR professionals in regulated financial services entities.

In this webinar our speakers will explore what the proposed Individual Accountability Framework, and specifically the Senior Executive Accountability Regime (SEAR), will mean for HR professionals in regulated financial services firms and outline the practical steps they will need to take to comply with the proposed regulations. Both Susan and Majella were closely involved in the SMCR implementation in the UK and bring that practical knowledge to the table for our panel session.

Key Takeaways:

  1. What is the Individual Accountability Framework and why did the CBI advocate for this legislation?
  2. Understanding what the proposed SEAR legislation means in practice for HR professionals in regulated firms
  3. Understanding what HR professionals need to be doing now to prepare for the proposed legislation.
