Skillsoft Introduces Code of Conduct Training for the Enterprise

Elearning solutions help companies address key compliance risk areas via video, course materials and tests

NASHUA, N.H.--()--Skillsoft today announced its Global Code of Conduct elearning solution, which provides foundational code of conduct and ethics training for the enterprise in a flexible and customizable format. Pairing highly-engaging video content with instructional material and skill-building questions, the solution helps employees understand the risks associated with a broad spectrum of compliance issues and how to properly address them. Administrative features include an annual reconfiguration process to keep content relevant as the organization grows, trackable sign-off by each employee to ensure completion and the ability to incorporate references to the employer's policies and other resources. The Code of Conduct training is part of Skillsoft's broader compliance and risk mitigation portfolio and further cements the company as a pioneer in the field of technology-delivered learning with a long history of innovation and delivering solutions for its customers worldwide, ranging from global enterprises, government, and education to mid-sized and small businesses.

The Global Code of Conduct solution is based on a course template of material covering key compliance risk areas including anti-bribery, antitrust, privacy and information security, insider trading, conflicts of interest, preventing harassment, social media and electronic communications and protection of company information, with additional risk areas to be added in 2014.

"Educating employees on a company's code of conduct is essential for avoiding legal violations and reducing the company's exposure to risk. To meet that need, organizations must provide effective, relevant training content that keeps pace with the continually-changing legal landscape," said Charlie Voelker, legal compliance solution manager, Skillsoft. "We are pleased to strengthen our compliance and risk mitigation portfolio with highly flexible training content that can be fully customized to an organization's code of conduct and maximizes the ease of deployment and economics associated with an off-the-shelf offering. This solution is designed to provide the critical training that can help a company build and reinforce its ethical and lawful culture."

Skillsoft's Global Code of Conduct solution is available on the Skillport learning management system (LMS), as well as through integration with third party systems.
