Training to Support Effective Financial Learning Strategies

Reduce regulatory risk through more compelling compliance training.

In our work with financial and professional services companies, and beyond, we are often grappling with dual challenges. Organisations have regulatory requirements to train their workforce and prove they have done so. At the same time, there is a need to find innovative ways to engage people with annual learning, so they are motivated to learn and apply the rules in their everyday work.

Often with the sheer pressure of the compliance requirements, engaging people can take a back seat. Instead, what becomes important is that people have 'done the training', not whether they have learned the knowledge to protect the business and better serve customers. This explains why feedback about compliance training is often negative, a tick box exercise with people complaining that it’s too long, too boring, irrelevant to their specific job role and hard to remember.

Added to this, you may not be able to get the detailed reporting on your people that you need to provide evidence of competence and to give you confidence of their understanding.
