Use WFH time now to complete compliance training

As a leader in your organization, your role is to maximize employees’ efficiency and productivity. This may seem daunting as most companies are simply trying to stay afloat, however, there are still ways to boost productivity as you prepare for the rest of the year. Many employees have been working from home for a few weeks and they are settling into their new routines, making this the perfect time to complete compliance training usually done in Q3 or Q4.

Business has slowed for many organizations but you still want your employees to be productive and get ready to return to normal without skipping a beat. So what can you do? Ensure employees can produce at full capacity when they return to the workplace by shifting your compliance training schedule. Typically, companies go through their annual compliance training cycles in the third and fourth quarter of the year, however, most companies anticipate transitioning back to the workplace in the latter half of 2020. Use the WFH time now for mandatory training of your employees so when you need them ramping back up at the workplace they won’t have to worry about taking time out of their busy schedules to complete their training.

In addition,  you can ask employees for more in-depth feedback on the training. In some cases and under normal circumstances, employees will speed through their mandatory training, however, with more time on their hands, employees can look at the courses with a more critical eye and provide feedback so you can improve and adjust your compliance training in the future.
