Are your compliance training programs strategic and aligned to business, or simply an obligatory duty with a check-the-box mentality?

When compliance is not integrated into your business system and culture, the outcomes are clear. Consequences include risk of legal action, significant costs in penalties, damage to brand reputation, and more. However, companies where compliance is a key component of their culture and that have fully integrated compliance management into their business systems not only perform better, but easily attract and retain talent. Achieving this integration can present a challenge—what is the best process to ensure compliance represents a strategic value to your organization?

To support you on this journey, Skillsoft has developed a road map, The Skillsoft Compliance Maturity Model, to make sure the route to your destination is clearly defined.

This webcast will demonstrate this framework and provide you with the information needed to establish your own integration. You will learn:

  • the risks presented by compliance programs based on a checkbox mentality
  • the merits of integrating compliance with business systems and culture
  • the steps to take to begin and maintain your compliance journey.
