It is common knowledge that good induction training plays a key role in helping new employees integrate seamlessly into an organization and goes a long way in ensuring they deliver high levels of productivity. Well-designed new-hire training programs make recruits feel comfortable working in a new environment and reduce employee turnover levels.
The safety of employees plays a vital role in every organization. Companies invest billions of dollars every year in training their workforce using technology-enabled learning. However, we still hear of accidents due to employee negligence and ignorance. So, how can organizations ensure the safety of employees?
Let’s face it, imparting compliance training to your employees is not the most exciting activity. Compliance issues consist of endless policies and regulations, along with countless dos and don’ts pertaining to your industry. Such a subject matter, if presented in the form of traditional text-heavy manuals or PDFs can cause employees to lose interest quickly, as they tend to be verbose and monotonous. Even the portions that employees did manage to study won’t be retained for long, causing severe compliance issues.

Needless to say, pharmaceutical personnel dealing with these drugs have to stay proficient with this extensive bank of knowledge.
If it’s one training that must be rolled out on time, it is workplace ethics and compliance training.

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.
