Corporate and regulatory compliance training is not the most exciting topics for employees. Corporate compliance ensures your organization runs smoothly and regulatory compliance ensures that your organization follows all applicable laws and regulations.
Common compliance areas in business include:
- Federal and State Laws
- Company Policies and Procedures
- Codes of Conduct
- Data Security
- Fraud Protection
- Business Ethics
- Sexual Harassment
- OSHA Regulations
- Workplace Violence
- Risk Management
- Workplace Substance Abuse
- Diversity and Inclusiveness
Noncompliance with federal and state laws can be detrimental to any organization. Ethics violations can also create turmoil within the organization and cause the loss of trust with customers and the public in general which can take a very long time to recover from.
Compliance training helps employees understand the issues and how to identify and report problems before violations can occur.
The key to effective compliance training is:
- Make it personal—use real-world scenarios and make it relatable
- Make it interesting—tell a story and make it visually stimulating
- Make it understandable—clear, concise, and to the point—don’t inundate them with too much information
- Make it easy to access—on demand and portable learning allows them to train when it’s convenient
- Make it ongoing—your team should be constantly learning, but don’t rehash the same old training—change it up!
