Online Compliance Training is the New Black

safety firstWith today’s economy not looking so hot, classroom-based (or face-to-face) training is not always the most cost-effective or feasible option for many companies. More recently it is compliance training that’s moved online for a number of reasons, one of the most persuasive being the ability to maintain an accurate record of employee training completion and results.

Compliance training is put in place to educate employees about laws, regulations and general company standards. It will hopefully reduce the risk of legal issues resulting from wrong-doing by an employee. Evidence that your trainees have completed this training is often imperative to maintaining a defense against legal action and it can ensure that legal responsibility sits squarely on the shoulders of your employee, not the company.

A large percentage of Litmos customers use our online training platform to deliver compliance training messages to employees, as well as other more specialized courses. Compliance training can be anything from sexual harassment to Occupational Health and Safety, in the office, or on a construction site.

Required online training does not have to be synonymous with ‘boring’ either. Online training courses can always be made more exciting by incorporating varied media like videos, Flash, PowerPoint presentations, audio, surveys and assessments. There is a wealth of information on here to help you design interesting courses, create engaging training videos, and build PowerPoint presentations that won’t put your trainees to sleep.
