How do you get your managers involved with compliance training?

October 1, 2018 12:18:16 PM CDT / by Ricardo Pellafone

Want your business to own compliance culture? Then you need to get your managers involved in spreading the message.

That is, if the message is just coming from the compliance team, then the business doesn't own compliance; the compliance team does. And since compliance teams are notoriously short-staffed and under-budgeted, that’s…bad.

No compliance team can own their company’s compliance culture effectively; it has to be transferred to the business in some form. That won’t happen by simply saying “the business owns compliance,” however; the business actually has to buy in and take part.

And none of that is controversial; everyone wants their managers or champions to get involved. No one thinks that the best approach is "totally top-down."

But...how do you pull that off?

Well, good news: we’ve got a guide that answers that question.

 

Introducing: The Broadcat Guide to Manager-Led Compliance Training

We know it’s tough to scope out, plan, and execute a good manager-led or champion-led training program. While the broad strokes aren't complicated, giving managers useful, easy-to-use training touchpoints on a consistent basis is a surprisingly big challenge.

And so we put together an illustrated guide to doing it.

The Broadcat Guide to Manager-Led Compliance Training

We released it to celebrate the launch of Broadcat for Champions, our product for manager/champion-led compliance training, but we’ve written it to give you practical steps on how to get the job done whether you work with us or not.

Inside, we cover:

  • The two unique strengths of manager-led training
  • How manager-led training complements e-learning and compliance-led training by focusing on different goals
  • How far to plan out, and why
  • What you need to do for each training touchpoint to make it useful and ridiculously easy to implement
  • Why you should get ultra-specific 
  • How to make a good job aid, with a visual breakdown of one of our own pieces
  • How to structure quality talking points for your managers
  • What to include in a cover email to managers, with a dissected example
  • Practical steps for socializing the program with leaders to ensure success

That’s right: we cover everything from the philosophical “why should we do it” to the ultra-granular task of writing a good cover email. We’ve written it to be a resource that you come back to again and again as you plan, create, and execute on this.

It’s live now, and yours for the taking.
