Removing the Negative Stigma Around Compliance Training
“This is boring.” “What’s the point?” “A waste of time..”
Have you heard these comments before? Compliance Training has a “check the box” stigma. It’s often not enjoyed, employees fail to appreciate it, and often they do not bring what they’ve learned to practice in their positions. Removing the Stigma around Compliance Training may be a challenge, but it’s well worth the investment!
Understanding the Costs of Compliance and Non-Compliance
So what are the True Costs of Compliance and Non-Compliance?
Simple. The cost of non-compliance may include fines, reputational damage, increased employee turnover, decrease in performance and productivity, damage to employee morale, ….
Compliance exists for a reason and that sole reason is to make a company, its community, and its environment THRIVE. There are many types of compliance categories including:
- Government-imposed Compliance Standards (Legal and Regulatory)
- Compliance with Industry Standards and Codes of Practice
- Compliance with External Client Specifications, Contract, etc.
- Compliance with Licensing, Permits, Accreditation, or Certifications
- Various levels of floor-level compliance in every business
Which is the priority? COMPLIANCE, as a whole
Make Compliance A Priority
The attempt to check every box becomes daunting. And that means the training is menial, the tribal perspective is inessential, and the content is disregarded.
How to make Compliance a Priority?
1. Create a Compliance Framework which includes every aspect of compliance
- One process is easier to monitor than five.
- It’s easier to adjust a framework as conditions change rather than adjust everything individually.
2. Create a Company Culture dedicated to Success
- A product or service is secondary to the commitment and vision of a company.
- Internal Compliance ensures a lack of operational errors.
