Entry Title: Compliance Training

Products Essay:

The recent news events circulating around workplace harassment has put compliance and harassment training in the spotlight. People outside of the HR department are realizing that compliance training isn’t just a legal responsibility, it’s key to creating a safe, productive, and ethical work environment. Compliance training has often been shrouded by a “checkbox” mentality; something that is simply a legal requirement. Our compliance and harassment training strives to put the “human” back in human resources by providing informative, engaging, and relevant training.

Today’s legal and regulatory environment is constantly changing, which is why we update our training every two years, or as the regulations change. Our workplace compliance library teaches the employee and the employer how to “stay within the lines”, understanding the psychology behind harassment, and how to stop it before it starts.

At ej4 we believe everyone deserves the right to work in a safe and harassment-free environment. All of an organization’s employees are responsible for achieving that; not just the legal team, the human resources team, and management. That’s why our library covers a broad range of employment law including Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA and ADAAA) to name a few. Our programs focus on defining the law in layman's terms, showing how it applies to the workplace, how to correct issues when they arise and provide real-world examples of these issues. The examples we use are not cheesy distractions that are commonly found in other training videos.

Our library also contains an updated Anti-Harassment series, Understanding Harassment series, and State-Specific Anti-Harassment Training (California, Maine, Connecticut). We understand some states require this training to be completed on an annual basis. That’s why we continually update our content so learners are engaged and learning and not just “going through the motions”.

Two of our most recently updated series, Understanding Harassment and Anti-Harassment, play an important role in understanding the psychology behind harassment. Our Anti-Harassment series lays down the law of harassment, breaking it down into a course for employees, a course for managers, and courses for important legal basics such as investigating harassment complaints, and writing an anti-harassment policy. Our series on Understanding Harassment takes the legal knowledge and applies it to the work environment with a practical and behavioral perspective, teaching learners how to stop harassment before it even starts.

We also provide training on additional employment best practices such as Legally Hiring, Pregnancy Discrimination, Diversity, Workplace Bullying, and Substance Abuse to name a few.

The programs and series in our Workplace Compliance library are complex legal topics, which is why we believe training should be more than a ‘check the box’ event. We break our topics down into smaller, bite-sized programs, which make the content easy to access and rewatch. Our approach helps the learner focus on a few learning points at a time, rather than an hour-long training session where they may not retain most of what they learn. In addition, we provide a manager version and an employee version to make sure each group is getting just the right information they need.

It’s important to follow up and reinforce learning points. We understand Compliance training isn’t a “shot in the arm.” That’s why our programs come with follow up materials that we call 4tify Your Learning™. After a program is watched it triggers the system to send an exam question 2 days later, a new question 2 weeks later, a new question at 2 months, and then a final exam question accompanied by a short video summary of the entire course at 4 months. This helps the learner move the information from short-term over to their long term memory.
