How do you create a safe, productive & ethical environment?
Compliance training is the most important responsibility of a training department/ professional. As outlined below, this kind of training is not simply about minimizing legal responsibility—it is key to creating an environment that is safe, productive, and ethical. The headlines and statistics confront us with an uncomfortable truth: Compliance training is often treated as an afterthought.
We can do better. Our workplaces can be safer and more inclusive, which will make them more inviting for everyone—and more productive. To achieve such a workplace, organizations will need many things: Clear, well-communicated policies, fair discipline, discussion, and more. It is clear to us that these rest on a solid foundation of good compliance training. Not necessarily the compliance training handed to us from decades gone by, but modern, well-designed training. In other words, best practices recommend compliance training with more measurement, better instructional design, more follow-up, and more discussion to really change corporate culture for the better. This is what modern organizations should want to be: safer, more ethical, and more caring about their people.
