In Australia, a café was fined $250,000 for underpaying its employees. In the United States, a casino giant was ordered to pay a $35 million fine for mishandling a sexual misconduct allegation. In Singapore, a foreman was sentenced to nine weeks in prison for neglecting the Workplace Safety and Health Act.
Around the world, companies can face steep fines for breaking laws that govern their industries. Non-compliance is not only expensive, it can jeopardize a company’s long-term future.
However, compliance trainings can educate employees on the relevant laws and policies that apply to their job responsibilities and what to do when those rules are broken. By implementing a comprehensive compliance training program, organizations can help protect themselves from potential risks and establish cultures of transparency and excellence.
E-learning enables companies to effectively and efficiently deliver these compliance trainings to workers on a mass scale. Not only can employers distribute e-learning trainings quickly, they can also track training progress and completion. In addition, studies show knowledge retention rates are high with e-learning.
For employees, e-learning offers convenience. Employees can fit e-learning compliance trainings into their schedules, rather than adjusting according to set training times and locations. Furthermore, employees have the freedom to complete e-learning trainings on their smart phones, laptops or desktop computers, instead of traveling to a designated location.
