David Osborn and Jessica Batz, BizLibraryWebinar Wednesdays 2013-14
Most organizations approach compliance training as “a cost of doing business” because it’s something they have
to do. There is no choice. Beyond this compliance centered perspective, we believe organizations can look at
the potential positive impact effective training might have on the day-to-day workplace for employees. Will
effective training make your work environment safer? Will employees all feel valued? Can we teach employees
how to look out for each other? The answers to these questions is, “Yes.” In the new session we’ll discuss:

  • Key strategies to get your employees more engaged in compliance training.
  • Tips for writing a business case.
  • 5 steps to select training content.
