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.
I love horses! But this blog is not about horses, it is about ERP implementation training – with a couple of horsey idioms thrown in.
Implementation of new ERP software, or upgrading an existing system can evoke mixed responses within an organization. Employers are anxious and unsure if it’s going to be another ‘failed ERP implementation’ statistic. Employees are frustrated that they will now be expected to relearn the way they perform some (or all) of their day-to-day functions. Both employers as well as employees are unhappy about the inevitable loss in productivity until everyone learns the ropes of the new or upgraded system.
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?
The job of a pharmaceutical salesperson is difficult. He must convince physicians, who have more knowledge about medicines than himself, to prescribe his products. How can a medical rep sell the benefits of his drug to doctors? He must be trained to be as knowledgeable as medical practitioners themselves.
Every organization is different. Even if two companies are doing the same thing, their way of operating, working philosophies, and culture set them poles apart. When new people join your organization, even though they are experienced members of your industry, they might feel out of place. They won’t be able to adjust to the ways of your organization immediately and will take time to start working seamlessly with the team. This can greatly reduce productivity. This is why it is necessary to effectively train your new hires in the ways of your organization.
What does it take to develop a good ERP training video? Among the various aspects you need to consider for creating an effective video-based lesson on your ERP system, the choice of the right authoring tool is inarguably the most important.
Every year, companies pay billions of dollars in compensation to workers who suffer injuries or illnesses at the workplace. How can firms prevent accidents at work? What does it take to ensure a safe workplace? They need to educate their people on the risks and train them on the required safety practices and procedures to mitigate risks.
Organizations today are implementing new software to ease operations and improve efficiencies. Apart from the implementation, another major challenge organizations face is providing technical training to their end-users.
