Episode 112 — Implementing an Effective Training Program
The government has stated that a well-designed compliance program includes “appropriately tailored training and communications.” Compliance policies cannot work unless effectively communicated throughout a company. Communications and training programs ensure that directors, officers and employees are aware of and follow compliance policies and procedures.
Indeed, the Justice Department’s recent Evaluation of Compliance Program Guidance noted that integration of a company’s policies and procedures should include periodic training of all directors, officers and relevant employees and where appropriate agents and business partners.
Further, the Guidance states that the company’s training program has to be tailored to the audience’s size, sophistication or subject matter expertise.
In this Episode, Mike Volkov outlines effective strategies for a training program.
