FREMONT, CA: Compliance training is a needed training set by management to inform employees across the organization so that they comprehend their obligation in making sure routine operations run efficiently. In some industries, non-compliance can result in severe penalties or even damages. Most businesses are subject to employment law forfeitures for non-compliance when it comes to workplace harassment and discrimination ordinances. Compliance training decreases the risk of litigation costs as well as losing clients because of unfavourable publicity. When starting a compliance training journey, it’s essential to recognise that a company does not have to start from scratch. There are many benchmarks and best practices that they can adapt and incorporate into their program.
1. Defining the Culture: Before a company begins constructing its compliance training program, it’s necessary to define the culture it is seeking to build within the company. What does a company’s culture mean, exactly? Workforce culture is the way employees communicate with one another and it’s also the implicit expectations that come with those interchanges. What types of behaviours does a company want to reward? What types of behaviours are discouraged? It’s important to put these concepts into writing so that they are easily available to employees in the employee handbook.
2. Identify Regulatory Training Necessities: An organization, depending on the nature of the industry, size, and location, may be needed to provide employees with regulatory compliance training. This may be employment law provisions like Sexual Harassment training or health and safety requirements. A company must specify what standards its workforce must adhere to for their organization's compliance.
3. Conduct Training on Company Standards & Culture Basics: Now that a company has a solid foundation for its compliance training program, it’s time to turn the focus to the basics of the company's standards and culture. A business must ensure that all employees fit not only within the culture but also within the standards that foster a workplace environment that allows the business to grow. Organizations can structure training sessions throughout the year to handle the needs of new and existing employees. By creating a habit out of these training sessions, the employees can be more conscious of their actions and how they influence the company’s goals.
