Move beyond compliance training to competency assurance.

Solution: Compliance to Competence

Let's admit it, no one really likes "compliance training" except maybe the companies who sell content for it.  With intelligent adaptivity you can go beyond conventional models and produce evidence of each employee's requisite knowledge for all stakeholders in a way that is personalized and more engaging for the employee.  Shifting from a completion-based compliance model to one that assures competency will yield incremental value because it is no longer a rote activity but an exercise that builds skills and confidence naturally in the flow of work.


Challenges With Compliance Training

Compliance training is a challenge because it is typically delivered as one-size-fits-all content that fails to engage the learner due to it not being particularly timely or relevant. The value and importance of mandatory training is often lost on the learner with this monolithic approach which often just scratches the surface once a year. The result is risk of costly mistakes as employees rush to complete learning they perceive to be of low value.

From the company’s perspective, one-size-fits-all compliance training appears efficient at scale, but in the end, leaders remain in the dark and live with increased risk because they don't actually know what each employee does or does not know.

One-size-fits-all fits no one

Compliance training in large-scale operations seems like a natural use of a one-size-fits-all training model, and yet some companies continue to experience uncomfortable levels of risk due to non-compliance.  A better learning model is needed.  

Measuring completions instead of competency

Tracking completions is an easy way to check-the-box but it is an insufficient way of evidence knowledge or skills.  

Added risk from ineffective training

Risk management is a real thing which is why Compliance training is a staple for large companies - more so if you are in a highly regulated industry.  Underneath compliance is competence.  Compliance is really about Competency Assurance.  Errors on the job or failures to comply with regulations or policies are costly to the business in terms of brand reputation, safety to customers or employees, regulatory violations, etc.

Poor knowledge retention

Knowledge conveyed through Compliance training is often not well retained because it is one-and-done.  Compliance training materials are often difficult to access or reference downstream when needed and may be hard to use unless they are easily accessible in context at the moment of need.

Compliance updates are inefficient

When updates or changes to protocols or processes are needed to remain compliant to internal or external standards, it is often time-consuming and inefficient because one-size-fits-all tactics are used to distribute updates. In many cases, only select employee groups or individuals in certain types of roles need to be updated. This is very difficult to manage and verify with conventional Compliance Training models.  

Compliance Essentials

Transform mandatory compliance training from rote, one-size-fits-all tasks to personalized, competency-building exercises that support performance when you incorporate the following essential components:

Reinforce knowledge more frequently

Automatically reinforce vital knowledge critical to compliant operations more than once a year.  Leverage microlearning moments personalized to context and timing to ensure skills remain current.

Make compliance easy to recall

It should be easy to recall and refresh requisite knowledge for compliance. When essential knowledge is required at the point of need it is important that employees have easy access to reference or learning materials.

Evidence that frontline staff are compliant

Operational leaders and team supervisors benefit from knowing whether their team members are or are not certified or compliant day to day and week to week. Provide compliance status on real-time dashboards to better manage risk.
