If it’s one training that must be rolled out on time, it is workplace ethics and compliance training. It is also one of those trainings that hits several roadblocks, resulting in delayed delivery to employees. We witness the first stumbling block at the very top (it can be likened to a small snowball on a hill, that gains speed, momentum, and size as it makes its way down the hillslope) at the company level, and then down to the trainers, SMEs, and employees. But every problem has a solution, and so do the problems mentioned in this blog.
The pharmaceutical industry is inarguably the most heavily regulated sector of the economy. Penalties are often imposed on many organizations in this sector for violation of applicable rules and statutes. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued 691 Form 483s to drug makers in the year October 2015-September 2016.1 Companies may face huge penalties, and in certain extreme cases, may have their license to operate annulled, if they don’t comply with the norms specified by drug-regulatory authorities.
Like every other compliance act, rule, regulation, policy, or standard, non-compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) will lead to dire consequences. This blog deals with the basics of HIPAA, what it is, why it is needed, who should be HIPAA-compliant, the types of online strategies that suit HIPAA training, and how often HIPAA training is required. But let’s start at the very beginning.
Compliance is all about educating people on various aspects such as ethics, laws, policies, and industry regulations. Many learners dislike taking up compliance training as it is dry and boring, and deals with laws and regulatory norms. So, how can you develop an immersive online compliance training program that engages learners effectively?
Jim is the compliance training manager of a large, multinational stock broking company. Recently, the company developed an online course on insider training. The content of the course was very relevant to learners, and Jim expected the course to be a big success. However, to his dismay, the course had few takers.
Following SOPs is not just a regulatory requirement, it also improves the quality of your business and ensures consistency in employee performance. Training your employees on Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) is a major challenge, apart from framing them. It’s quite a daunting task to train employees on procedures and regulations.
Every organization wants the best performance from their employees. But, skill is not the only thing that allows employees to give their 100% to your company. Each organization and industry is required to follow certain rules while trying to deliver an optimal output. The process of educating employees on the laws, regulations, and company policies that apply to their day-to-day responsibilities is broadly referred to as compliance training.
As per the US Federal Agency, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) observations, many companies in the healthcare sector fail to establish and maintain the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), in their production or manufacturing processes. In a sense, knowingly or unknowingly, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers are violating the basic component of current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs).
Compliance training refreshes healthcare professionals’ knowledge of laws, rules, and regulations. It also reminds them of their role in maintaining compliancy. However, mired in the complexities of content, compliance training programs end up being boring, with dull content.
Healthcare compliance can be bewildering, with its convoluted acts and sections. No company wants to violate compliance laws intentionally. However, employees stumble upon some unfamiliar rules in the law, as they get carried away by regular work. Mired in the complexities of the content, compliance training programs end up being boring, with dull and lackluster content.
