Recently, the DOJ released a policy document titled "Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs" highlighting eleven factors relevant in evaluating a corporate compliance program.
Training and communications were a factor highlighted and the DOJ articulated the following metrics:
- Risk-Based Training: What training have employees in relevant control functions received? Has the company provided tailored training for high-risk and control employees that addressed the risks in the area where the misconduct occurred? What analysis has the company undertaken to determine who should be trained and on what subjects?
- Form/Content/Effectiveness of Training: Has the training been offered in the form and language appropriate for the intended audience? How has the company measured the effectiveness of the training?
Emtrain has long incorporated these concepts into its industry-leading Global Anti- Bribery and Corruption course. Among other things, the course motivates employees to understand the risk present in their specific job function including thorough issue-spotting videos and other learner exercises that are offered in several different languages, and contain a Learning Management System enabling an administration to launch and track training efforts, as well as generate audit-reading training reports.
