With the many Federal Employment Laws currently in place, making sure your company adheres to them can be tricky. You have to cover all of your bases even when your plate is full. In fact, your company's HR department is probably working hard to ensure safety, compensation, benefits, etc., all align with federal law. Despite the efforts businesses make, many find staying on top of the laws difficult. According to a survey conducted by ADP, 52 percent of mid-sized companies have experienced at least one HR-compliance issue. Additionally 90 percent of companies (of all sizes) look for outside aid to help them meet regulations. That statistic makes sense, given that half of HR departments worry they won't be able to keep up with current laws.


If your business is among the 90 percent that wants a little extra help, you're in luck - it's readily available. The facets of HR compliance related to employee training (such as workplace safety and ethics) are easy to outsource. By using eLearning courseware to teach your employees and HR team valuable information about workplace laws, you'll save time and adequately train the people in your company. Here are the ways in which video training makes HR compliance simpler:

Cuts Down on Time

Rather than place your employees in an hour-long meeting (which they may not have time for), you can present eLearning courseware that's less than 10 minutes long. These short videos cover a specific topic, hitting all the key points. With the quick learning format, your employees will have to watch numerous videos, but they can more easily squeeze them into their already packed schedules.

Doesn't Require a Trainer

If your HR department has to train all employees on certain labor laws, they'll have to create presentations and administer them. Video learning removes that need. Employees can sit at their desks and watch videos without the help of other personnel. This frees up your HR team to work on other important projects, like meeting other compliance areas.

Companies Can Manage Progress

ej4 eLearning courseware can come with Thinkzoom, an innovative system that makes tracking employee progress easy. Through the platform, administrators can check to see which employees have completed their training and which have not. This system makes ensuring the entire company is up to date on labor laws simpler. Furthermore, Thinkzoom has a custom content tool administrators can use to make training videos that address the company's unique policies.
