For many organizations, it is mandatory to retrain their employees regularly on organizational codes of conduct, and industry regulations and compliances.
But doing this can be time-consuming and costly by using traditional training methods for training.
It can also be quite tedious for employees.
But the availability of tools like Learning Management Systems (LMS), such as Docebo, and authoring tools, such as Articulate 360, for creating corporate and compliance training courses, has made it easier for organizations to overcome these issues.
There are also several LMS that comes with in-built authoring tools that further make this more convenient.
Compliance training is undertaken by organizations for employee training authorized by legislation, regulation, or company policy.
This training educates employees about the laws and regulations for their jobs or industry.
Ensuring everyone in the organization is up to date on the responsibilities isn’t an easy task.
To help make this task easier, LMS provides organizations with various features –
- Quick and Easy Course Creation – Most LMSs have instinctive course creation interfaces that make it easy to create and make changes to courses as and when the training requirements change. This is a useful feature in compliance training, which is evolving constantly.
- Flexible and Fun Course Presentation – Reading and training about corporate policies are rather dreary for employees. LMSs can help a company deliver training content through a variety of interactive learning activities. If implemented well, the courses can entice and incentivize employees to increase their engagement, making the training experience less tedious for everyone involved. Most LMSs also offer training compatible with mobile devices for participation on the go. The flexibility to train whenever and wherever can positively affect employee information retention and provide long-term outcomes.
- Automated Reminders and Notifications – With the assistance of an LMS, organizations can ensure compliance training’s completion by the employees on time with convenient and customizable automated reminders and notifications. This helps employees stay on track and keep making progress through the training courses.
- Assessments and Reporting – LMS has assessment and reporting capabilities that can be extensive and includes live tracking of employee engagement and course completion, as well as automatic grading of performance. Depending on the type of LMS used by an organization, some LMSs have advanced analytics to highlight specific trends and statistics from the training courses. These trends and statistics can allow organizations to get useful insights in the future like – learner engagement, course timelines, and completion levels, performance on individual and/or group levels, probable knowledge gaps that require further course strengthening or clarification, gray areas in which the course material can be adapted to serve its training purpose better.
With organizations having access to this level of comprehensive reporting, it can prove to be particularly valuable in compliance training.
Along with these features, LMSs also offer specific features for compliance training which include –
