While compliance training is necessary, it doesn’t have to be “Ugh! Here we go again, let’s just get through this!”
Up to now, compliance training has a reputation for being challenging for organizations to offer, difficult to do right, and hard to move beyond a tick-box approach. Old-school compliance training is generally very expensive to deliver because of the high per-user price tag.
Executives have struggled with compliance training issues for years
Senior Management, Risk, Compliance, and HR executives have been struggling with compliance training for years. Difficult topics are not sufficiently addressed causing major gaps between your current and ideal states. Linking compliance training to specific outcomes has been hard, and many executives even disagree that compliance training has a positive effect on their culture.
One of the most critical factors of meeting compliance requirements is your users’ understanding of those requirements and actually applying them on the job.
Time for new-school compliance training: Compliance Plus
You told us you were ready for New-school Compliance Training, so we decided to bring you a whole new way to do compliance training… the KnowBe4 way: up-to-date, engaging, relevant, short, and customizable!
Compliance Plus training is interactive, relevant, and engaging with real-life simulated scenarios to help teach your users how to respond in a challenging situation. The content addresses difficult and sometimes chaotic topics like sexual harassment, diversity and inclusion, discrimination, and business ethics. Compliance Plus includes various types of media formats and reinforcement materials to support your compliance training program.
With Compliance Plus you can finally manage the ongoing problem of employee non-compliance.
Compliance Plus Training Topics Include:
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
A varied and diverse workforce brings myriad benefits to any organization; from differences of background and experience to new approaches to business problems. Encouraging acceptance of such a workforce is a key goal of diversity training covering topics such as recognizing and addressing microaggressions. Our training on microaggressions approaches the issue head on and explains how to help your users avoid these roadblocks to an inclusive and equitable workplace.
Discrimination of any sort cannot and should not be tolerated in a modern working environment. Recognizing discrimination when it happens and knowing how to stop it in its tracks is vital for a positive corporate culture. Our anti-discrimination training content teaches your users what discrimination looks like, how to avoid and stop it, and what steps managers should be taking to ensure a respectful and encouraging workplace for all.
In today’s highly-regulated environment, it’s critical employees understand the key values that guide your organization’s operations and culture. Our business ethics training content allows you to educate your users on the key legal requirements and ethical principles involved in working for your organization. The ultimate goal is to set a solid ethical framework and foundation to orient employees to do the right thing.
The possibility of unexpected physical dangers, such as workplace violence, active shooters, or biological health hazards have become an unfortunate reality of the modern workplace. This training content teaches employees the vital steps they need to take in the event of situations like an active assailant attack at their workplace.
Personal data is one of the most valuable commodities organizations like yours hold. Ensuring your employees know the value of this information, both to your customers and your company as a whole, is vital to continued business success and reduced risk. Our data privacy training content lays out the importance of data privacy, the risk inherent mishandling personal data, and the potential consequences of non-compliance with data privacy rules.
Good data protection practices will strengthen trust in your organization and foster customer loyalty, which are essential to maintaining profitable lifetime customers. The overall goal of these courses is to create informed employees that can identify personally identifiable information (PII), understand how to handle it, and make better privacy decisions that ultimately reduce risk to your organization.
Employees must be aware of federal and state laws that govern how organizations of all sizes are run in order to minimize risk and liability. Our employment law training covers the federal and state laws that govern the workplace, including topics like discrimination, harassment, wage and hour laws, FMLA, and reasonable accommodations under the ADA.
