Tailoring an Online Compliance Training for Employees
Many employees confess that some of the worst memories of their work places are compliance training exercises, especially those done online. Some of these training exercises include hours of going through material online as well as watching videos and modules that are not only boring but also too long. However, changing a couple of aspects of these online compliance training exercises leads to fun and productive tasks.
Learn About the Audience
It is prudent to learn as much as possible about the audience beforehand to align the format of the exercise with their interests. Find out things such as their training and professional background, their level of experience within the field, what they consider as fun things to do, or whether there are any newcomers to the group. A good way to come up with this vital information is through carefully designed surveys and questionnaires.
Knowledge of Company Policies
The second step towards a successful training is to know how far along the company is in implementing their compliance training policy. Find out how far along the employees are in the program. Have the subject matters been adequately covered? Go through the content in their last training to determine which aspects not to include.
Include Games and Simulations
Games get encouraged in any compliance training exercise to help the participants maintain focus. The other reason is that everybody loves games. Orient the games and simulations in such a way that the employees should pass one stage successfully before proceeding to the next level. The questions incorporated within the game are about compliance issues.
Make it Personable
Adding some amount of humor not only makes the games fun but also more memorable. The employees end up retaining an enormous amount of relevant information. However, do not be tempted to go overboard. The jokes should also include real life scenarios within the office.
