LRN's work with Bemis shows how it put that belief into action. MORE PARTNER INFORMATION: Bemis is a major global supplier of flexible and rigid packaging used by leading food, consumer products, healthcare, and other companies worldwide.

Learn more at CHALLENGES: Organizational changes had led to a lack of concentrated focus on ethics and compliance. A full-time resource had not been dedicated, and the company's Code of Conduct did not reflect its brand values. The 150+ year-old company needed to demonstrate to employees its continued innovation. SOLUTIONS DEPLOYED: Under new leadership, Bemis was ready to focus on coordinating compliance functions, promoting the company's core values, and creating a new company Code of Conduct. LRN was hired to help carry out its vision to build a new program, including writing the new Code of Conduct and developing a training program for its global employees. "I would not hesitate to recommend LRN—their professionals, the ease of doing business, their learning platform and library—for any type of industry. I have worked with competitors, and have not found that ease of use or accessibility that I do at LRN." –Robin Schroeder, Associate General Counsel - Compliance & Business Integrity, Bemis Company Inc. COMPANY PROFILE TYPE OF COMPANY: Public SECTOR: Manufacturing, Packaging Products SIZE: 18,000 employees When Robin Schroeder, Associate General Counsel - Compliance & Business Integrity, joined Bemis Company nearly four years ago, Bemis wasn't yet ready to dedicate full-time resources to its compliance functions. At the time, compliance was being managed as an additional responsibility of each attorney in specialized practice groups. Compliance functions were divided among attorneys, such as those around insider trading and anticorruption, and online training was not coordinated. Bemis also had new leadership, including a CEO, CFO, and president of its largest division. By early 2015, given that management was interested in branding opportunities to emphasize the company's four core values, Robin was able to steer the company to dedicate full-time resources to lead the compliance program.
