New Year, new start for your employee compliance 2023 training strategy
Compliance training is an essential part of any business’s operations, as it ensures you are undertaking your legal responsibilities to adhere to any rules and regulations your business must comply with. Employee compliance training is an umbrella term, that covers many business functions including health and safety, HR, data security and many more that may be pertinent to a specific sector or business. These include but are not limited to:
Health and safety including fire safety, DSE, food safety and COSHH if applicable
GDPR and data security
Conflicts of interest
Code of conduct
A good compliance training programme helps businesses to manage all aspects of compliance without missing something vital. To set up an appropriate compliance training portfolio, you’ll need to list all of the regulations that you must comply with (both mandatory and optional, such as ISO’s) to run your business and then seek out or create the necessary training.
Beyond the mandatory legal requirements, an effective employee compliance training can have many benefits, including:
Improved workplace safety
Less working days lost due to injury, mental health issues, etc.
Improved employee retention
Protecting your business’ reputation
Reducing the risk of legal action
Improved eligibility for standards and accreditations (which can improve your businesses competitiveness)
Compliance training also shows your employees that you are taking their safety seriously and are a reputable business that should be taken seriously.
