How to take your compliance communication from dud to stud

Compliance communication is more than just the occasional hand wash. Employees need to be fully aware of all corporate do’s and don’ts. If compliance is not deeply instilled into an organization’s DNA, it may result in millions of dollars in fines, costs or even legal action. Netpresenter provides you with the tools to create a risk-conscious workplace by effectively getting crucial compliance rules across and most importantly, making your staff remember them.

Organizations typically approach compliance with orientation training when an employee is hired. Maybe even some occasional training thereafter. In many cases, this approach falls short of effectively driving change throughout the organization. Why? Because people just don’t remember what they were taught months or even years ago.

With Netpresenter you keep your employees on their toes, by repetitively communicating compliance rules and regulations through screensavers on every desktop, apps on mobile devices and digital signage screens positioned in strategic places.  ‘Do the right thing-messages’ about opening dubious e-mails on corporate computers or leaking confidential information to the press, can be scheduled to keep coming back periodically, creating a message that cannot be ignored, nor forgotten.

Bad VS Good Compliance Communication

But why is it so important to effectively communicate compliance rules and regulations? Because at the end you will be paying the price for your staff’s failure to comply – whether it was intentional or not. Recently, an international banking institution learned that the hard way. It was fined $1.25 billion for violating anti-money-laundering (AML) regulations. Even though the organization had training programs, these had not succeeded in creating strong compliance understanding amongst its employees.

However, when organizations successfully create a risk-conscious workplace, law enforcement responds positively. For example, the U.S Department of Justice didn’t prosecute a financial institution for violations of the foreign corrupt practices act (FCPA) caused by a rogue employee, because of the company’s promotive anti-corruption compliance and training program.
