Effective Compliance Training



Let’s face it! Compliance and risk training can be extremely dry at times. Here are a few ways you can make it interesting for employees so they can get the full benefits of the training objectives.

  • Gamify, competitions and awards: Engage with staff through making it more interactive rather than just listening to videos. Adding some fun elements to the training will help your colleagues get through it without falling asleep, and help them remember and work in accordance with the things learned.
  • Use Humor: One of the effective ways to make it fun is to add a touch of humour by adding character banter, witty comments or real world YouTube videos or picture examples that features humorous elements.
