Compliance and Ethics Curriculum and Communications Plan Development
Corpedia’s Curriculum Plan Development Solution was created to help organizations maximize the impact of training without consuming their entire program budget. By focusing training and communication efforts on functional roles and specific risks within your organization, you can train the right employees at the right time—ensuring the best use of their time and your budget, while removing instances of redundancy.
Based on an industry-level risk assessment, a review of the existing training curriculum, and an evaluation of the client’s employee base profile—and taking into account corporate culture, organizational needs and priorities, industry trends, and peer best practices—Corpedia will make in-depth recommendations on the development of an effective, multi-year compliance and training program. The training plan will address, among other things:
- The types of training and/or communications necessary
- Recommended content, length, frequency, schedule, and priority of training or communications
- Target employee bases and functions to receive each type of training or communications
- Modality of delivery and delivery systems
- Implementation timeline
Manager Communication Kits
Setting “tone from the top” is critical to ensuring employees understand that the compliance program’s goals are endorsed by the executive team. However, an organization’s tone from the top must resonate through its middle management, thus ensuring the “tone from the middle.”
Recent research indicates that a majority of employees take their ethical behavior and compliance cues from middle management and feel most comfortable reaching out to their direct supervisor to discuss compliance issues or report violations. Unfortunately, research also demonstrates that middle managers often feel ill prepared for compliance conversations.
