The Twelve Days of GRC

Blog Post created by Steve Schlarman Employee on Dec 22, 2014

Greetings and Happy Holidays.   As this year draws to a close, we can all take a deep breath as this has been a big year in the world of GRC.  Collectively as an industry, we have seen the advent of new laws and industry regulations; we have embraced new technologies; we have weathered financial storms and organizational challenges; we have made great personal strides; and we have had our share of experiences – both good and bad – that give us the unique title of GRC professional.  Before we let next year’s challenges overwhelm us, take some time this holiday season to enjoy a cup of eggnog, watch George Bailey and Clarence in “It’s A Wonderful Life”, giggle at the Grinch with the kids or do whatever you do to enjoy this holiday season.

 

For those of you needing a little extra holiday inspiration, here is a little own holiday jingle for you to sing and reminiscence about 2014.
