Compliance Training Is Not Always Boring

It is that time of the year, where every employee must tick the mandatory courses in compliance training. Some prefer to take the training online while the rest choose offline. Whichever way it is, Compliance Training is fun, says no one ever.

No matter which industry your organisation fits in, legal and regulatory compliance is vital both for the organisation and the employees. Research has shown the positive change the training could bring about some of the large and most successful organisations, especially in this region. Improper or insufficient training could lead to the breaking of laws by the employees and might be costly for the organisation.

Therefore, it is the responsibility of all the organisations in our region to keep their employees trained and this should be recorded, maintained and managed effectively.

Compliance Training is mostly content loaded, not always engaging, no matter how many times it is delivered. Few organisations still cling onto a lecture-based format that the employees fail to appreciate regarding it as boring, a waste of time or even irrelevant. The question then becomes, how do you structure a strategy for Compliance training?

Nowadays we have Learning Management Systems to spice things up. Whether your compliance training budget is small or large, there are plenty of ways to make your training sparkle and stick. Engaging content and instructional design are the key ingredients. Add a pinch of gamification, social learning, and narrative format and your audience will absolutely devour it.

Off -the -shelf, bit-size eLearning courses work well in this scenario, however, there are a few limitations. In this case, customized eLearning programs would work well to suit your organisation’s needs.
