While few, if any, employers had time to develop state-of-the-art policies or revamp their training programs in 2020 for matters unrelated to COVID-19, they would be wise to consider taking proactive steps as the world returns to some semblance of normalcy. As employees begin to focus on more mundane matters, they would do well to remember that a well-drafted, up-to-date employee handbook tailored to your organization is an essential element of your compliance program. Effective and engaging training is necessary to communicate your policies and priorities to your employees, and to ensure your managers understand their roles and what is expected of them. A state-of-the-art handbook and top-shelf training will be of little value, however, if your employees and/or managers are not following those policies, it is critical that you conduct compliance audits to ensure your organization is walking the talk.
Participants in this webinar learned:
- Practical considerations that go into drafting and revising handbooks, including your primary objectives
- Must-haves in every handbook
- Which policies and procedures should be reviewed/revised
- Best practices for training in the digital age
- How training can and should support your overall compliance program
- Tips for conducting internal compliance audits
