Employees must typically complete compliance training in order to continue their employment.
It will often revolve around specific company policies or rules but can also be about laws or regulations that are applicable to the organization and the employee’s job.
Compliance training is usually always job and industry-specific and is time-sensitive.
Employees will often need to complete compliance training by certain deadlines in order for the organisation and its employees to be in compliance.
Why is Compliance Training important?
Compliance training is often mandatory for employees because it serves to protect an organisation’s values, policies and commitment to the law.
Disregarding the required rules, regulations or policies within an organisation can have drastic consequences, including loss of employment, fines, criminal prosecution, audits or damage to the business’s reputation.
Having employees meet a standard of compliance training ensures that an organisation has secured legal accountability.
Annual compliance training is an important part of your program–but don’t stop there.
A compliance program is only as strong as its employees.
Compliance is a lot to keep up with. Annual training provides employees with a “big picture” reminder of how your compliance program operates, but is not enough to keep compliance top-of-mind. Compliance education should teach your employees on an ongoing basis, helping them do their jobs and helping you stay compliant.
The great thing about running your compliance program through the RedSeed LMS is that you have the ability to automatically enrol trainees is updated compliance courses as they become available, and report on when team members are due a refresher.
