Zeppelin GmbH represents Zeppelin Group as a member of the Forum Compliance Mittelstand. Adhering to the company’s internal compliance rules is a binding requirement for all our employees. It is a vital part of ensuring our company’s long-term success and is a requirement in every business situation, which we aim to take into greater consideration and further develop as a member of the FCM.
The Forum Compliance Mittelstand (FCM) is a voluntary association of small- and mid-sized enterprises and associations that serves to promote and spread a value-driven way of doing business among companies of a similar size. The FCM takes the specific features of SMEs as a starting point and exploits the opportunity to develop and spread practically relevant solutions, concepts, and methods for SMEs. The FCM works at the intersection of business, ethics, and compliance, and fosters dialog between research and practice.
It organizes regular meetings for its members, where they discuss current issues and challenges as part of presentations and panel discussions. The ongoing aim of the FCM is to conduct research projects into compliance management for SMEs and in doing so to actively foster dialog between researchers and the world of business.
At Zeppelin, we are keen to use this as a chance to help set the benchmark for dealing with business ethics and compliance in German SMEs.
