All in a Day's Work - A Look at the Varied Responsibilities of Internal Auditors​For the most part, companies are in business to make money. Schools, charities, and other nonprofit organizations may have the goal of educating, influencing behavior, or helping those less fortunate.

To do this, many organizations enlist the aid of governing bodies such as boards of directors — an assembly of experienced business professionals who represent the organization’s stakeholders — to provide oversight and strategic direction.

For the board to steer the organization effectively, board members must receive timely, accurate information about the organization’s many strategic, operational, financial, and compliance risks as well as assurance the risks are being well managed.  Enter the internal auditors.
