Does your company have trouble keeping track of compliance regulations and the steps necessary to remain in good standing? If you do, you’re not alone. Regardless of industry, organizations need to be concerned with compliance because of a number of repercussions, some legal and financial, while others may need to adhere for the sake of social or ethical responsibilities.
One of our customers, Brocade, recently put together a robust compliance program using the SkillSoft Academy LMS, courses from SkillSoft’s Legal Compliance Collection and customized courses. Brocade sought out a compliance solution because they needed to make sure their employees were abiding by the corporate code of conduct (COC) and keeping up with sales certifications.
By integrating SkillSoft Academy with their internal ERP system, managers were able to see which employees were due and overdue for training. Because the SkillSoft technology and localization practices allowed for the program to be implemented globally, Brocade could expand the reach of the program to employees worldwide.
“We started off with a small population on the COC and quarterly sales certifications, and subsequently expanded to cover the entire company with SkillSoft training,” said Petrie Terblanche, Brocade Director of Internal Audit and Compliance. By streamlining a compliance program, Brocade efficiently managed their employee requirements and progress.

In addition to producing content and technology offerings around compliance, SkillSoft regularly hosts events and/or produces resources around hot topics in compliance. To help companies understand the new UK Bribery Act, SkillSoft recently hosted a webinar to explain the details of the anti-corruption law, which affects any company that does business with organizations located in the United Kingdom. In the fall of 2011, SkillSoft released a course around the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act; a law which took affect this January around accessibility standards for companies.
