Any type of mandatory training will likely make employees feel a bit apprehensive. However, compliance training courses are a must and will benefit employees and the organization when conducted properly.
This means learning how to engage an audience, keep them interested, and learn about compliance in a fun way. But how can you do that? Besides using tools like True Office Learning, we rounded up a few excellent compliance training examples to use.
1. Compliance Test
In compliance, assessment is crucial. Unfortunately, it usually results in standard box-ticking exercises, which has engagement fall way too fast.
Instead, you can amp up the engagement through a compliance test using question pools. Here are reasons why it works:
· There are various question types that keep learners engaged with very minimal risk of repetition.
· You can add light-touch scenarios to make sure all questions are relevant. Learners can apply what they learned in realistic situations instead of just checking their knowledge.
· Learners won’t be likely to answer the same questions again. That way, you’re assured that learners really understand the training’s content and can’t share answers.
2. Test-First Approach
Businesses should conduct compliance training annually. However, we’re known to conduct the same old programs year by year, which has made employees groan and say, “not again!”
Change it up a notch with a test-first approach, so people spend time on the training they actually need, saving time and money. Use scenario-based questions, which keep things relevant and exciting.
Through testing first, users will only view content they require, with the content being short and focused for easy digestion.
3. In-Depth Compliance Training
We recommend breaking down compliance training into smaller chunks, which can hold employee attention further. It also prevents employees from clicking things without reading just to get things over with. Furthermore, smaller chunks of information lead to a better focus on specific behaviors and learning points.
We recommend breaking modules down into smaller topics and leading them to one page per section rather than long texts. That way, employees can see all sections of the compliance course at a glance, getting more of a sense of progress as they finish a section. Just make sure that you include practical assessment questions and application-focused activities to make the entire course more active than passive.
4. Step-by-Step Process
When employees have to delve into practical compliance processes, you need to make sure it’s straightforward to digest. You can try using a visual menu, breaking up the steps of processes.
A visual menu with a step-by-step process works as every step is a separate topic, organized by process order. Employees get a whole process overview to see the bigger picture before heading to further detail.
You can adjust the topic design, making it suit the complexity of specific processes. In the end, you can show case studies of how to use the steps in real life.
Wrapping It Up
Hopefully, these examples gave you more insight into what kind of compliance training you can run for your employees.
