  • How to Choose the Right Compliance Training LMS for Onboarding New Recruits

Conducting work demo sessions. Providing knowledge training. Holding team meetups and educating them about how your organization functions. All of it helps to boost ROI against your new hires.

But what’s the right way of doing that?

While compliance training and employee development can get the best in sweat, thank our fortunes, there’s an easy way out.

Learning management systems.

By successfully choosing and leveraging the right LMS for your compliance training program, you can help yourself clear up your work desk.

But, how do you choose the right LMS for your Compliance Training programs?

Rest assured. Considering the below pointers will help you weed out poor LMS choices, enabling you to choose the LMS that satisfies all your compliance training needs.

1. SCORM Compliant System Support

SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is the industry standard for eLearning.

While you’re choosing an LMS, it’s important to see if it goes well with the SCORM. The format of the results produced from SCORM courses is generally recognized and understood by compliance managing bodies.

2. Ability to Monitor Training Progress

Another feature you need to check is its ability to monitor training progress.

You can automate the process of reporting so it’s done on a regular basis and this will help you identify issues early in the process so you can dodge all kinds of potential risks.

3. See if it allows Groups for different Departments

Any team of working professionals in the world comprises of diversified talents.

While one person may have great people skills, we can’t be sure if others will as well. This calls for the categorization of employees based on their department and respective roles.

Simply put, your choice of LMS must allow the course administrators to create groups for different departments. This will also make all managers’ lives easier by allowing them to regularly check on employee progress.

4. It should allow Single Sign-on

It’s no surprise that with the myriad of social media accounts and email addresses, it sometimes becomes hard to remember login details.

Choosing an LMS offering single sign-on* is a good way of saving yourself and your employees the hassle of setting up and then forgetting login credentials.

*A single sign-on feature enables end-users within an organization to access multiple services/applications, with just one set of credentials.

5. It must keep an account of the Due Dates

When you get a new employee, you will want the ability to prioritize the training processes to speed things up so they can begin to do the work they’ve been hired to do.

This is the reason why it’s important to finish compliance training programs within a specific time frame.

Any learning management system would be fit for compliance (or general employee) training courses if it allows admins to set due dates for courses.

This will remind employees of the deadlines for which they need to complete the work by.
