Compliance training should form the cornerstone of any organisation’s training programme; it ensures that employees are familiar with organisational requirements and regulations. Although it can be hard to see when working under day-to-day pressures, compliance regulations are set up for the good of everyone.
So, why should you implement a Learning Management System? Ensuring that your organisation has a reliable LMS to train your employees on compliance regulations, and using it to its full potential, along with creating your own content, will benefit you in the long run.
Implementing and managing your own LMS, and creating your own training content, ensures that your organisation is in full control of the quality of the messaging and training that your employees receive. When working with compliance rules and regulations, you want to make certain that the correct information is being relayed to your employees to avoid errors. By tailoring your training to meet your organisation’s needs, you are able to recreate realistic scenarios that your employees could encounter in your business or industry. Bespoke training allows learners to see and understand how their response to a scenario can directly affect the outcome. This allows for constructive feedback while they’re still involved in the learning process.
Stay up to date
Going hand-in-hand with quality control, is staying up to date with the regulations that are relevant to your industry. Although some compliance training covers basic safety matters, like correct equipment usage or the existence of safety gear (fire extinguishers, gloves, goggles, spare wheels, first aid kits, etc.), other regulations can shift with every new regional law. Even with safety requirements, there may be changes in technology or policy that require a different approach. Owning and managing your own LMS allows your organisation to review compliance rules and regulations and make updates to your training content as and when needed, as well as revising existing content to account for new company policies.
Customising your needs
Updating your content is easy when it’s your own; you can make the call on whether to add or take away information. When you purchase off-the-shelf content updating and editing training materials isn’t a possibility. Updating content should always be a consideration when you see the patterns like employees losing interest, assessment results not improving, lack of practical application by learners of the skills taught in your training content, or when industry standards change. Making changes to your own content to meet these needs is all within your control when the content it your own.
Tailor your assessments and feedback to suit your goals
Assessments and feedback are arguably two of the most important factors of online training. These allow you to determine if your content is successfully delivering key learning objectives to your learners, and which areas require more attention. By creating custom content with assessments and feedback, you can ensure that your learners are receiving training that is relevant to your organisation, rather than generic content that doesn’t impart the skills and knowledge required to make a difference at your organisation. When it comes to compliance training, it is essential that your employees can demonstrate a clear understanding of the rules and regulations being communicated to them.
