If you’re keeping up to date on summer cinema, I’m sure you’re excited about the upcoming Barbie movie. Or maybe that’s not exactly your speed and you’re more of an Oppenheimer fan. Perhaps, you want to see both in a rollercoaster-ride of a double feature. No matter what films you’re interested in, there’s almost nothing better than sitting down, grabbing some popcorn, and watching a cinematic masterpiece.

At Skillsoft, we might not be producing summer blockbusters, but our compliance training sure has gained a lot of attention over the past year for its cinematic quality. Available in various formats, we have a robust library of legal and safety content in 30+ languages that is designed to help organizations around the world educate their employees on how to be safe and productive in the workplace.

And the Oscar Goes To . . .

Okay, our training content wasn’t nominated for the Oscars this year. But, we are very excited to share that it has been recognized for excellence in cinematic achievements in its own right.

This year, Skillsoft received multiple awards for its outstanding legal and safety-related content. Our winning content focused on a wide range of topics including workplace harassment and heat stress awareness, and it represents only some of the exceptional compliance training content we are committed to producing regularly.

Here’s a quick overview of the recognition we received:

The Stevie® Awards are the world’s premier business awards, created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide. Out of the six submissions made to the Stevie Awards in various video categories, Skillsoft was awarded three gold and two bronze awards.

We were also awarded multiple Telly Awards during this year’s selection period. Of nine videos submitted, we placed with eight, including one gold, five silver, and two bronze awards. With a decade-high record number of exceptional entries submitted, this year’s winners truly represented the most innovative stories being told across all screens – so we are very proud of this incredible achievement.

Our workplace harassment, security, and safety training footage highlights the importance of proper workplace conduct and earned praise from both awards committees for the powerful and honest testimonies of real workers and the “stylish cinematic techniques” used within the films.

Hot Takes on Heat-Related Illness

Summer heat can be brutal, and this summer is proving to be exceptional with high temperature records being broken all over the world. Whether you’re working outside delivering packages or indoors sorting them, summer is the season for heat-related illnesses – and they can happen to anyone, anywhere.

For example, did you know that nearly 75% of all heat-illness fatalities happen during the first week of employment? That’s why proper training is so important. By providing your employees with the right tools to combat heat-related injuries, you are helping to ensure a safer, happier, and more productive work environment.

As part of Skillsoft’s Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) catalogue, our heat-related training content has been extremely well-received. Providing insights into how companies and their employees can prevent occupational heat exposure, stay cool in the summer heat, and effectively implement heat-related illness training, we offer our content in a variety of formats so your team can learn about heat safety when—and where—they need to.

Boosting Engagement in Workplace Harassment Training

Unfortunately, heat-related illnesses aren’t the only safety concerns in the workforce. Workplace harassment can happen to any employee at any organization—even if you have a training program in place.

Did you know that more than 8% of women globally have experienced sexual harassment in their working life? And that 44% of people have reported experiencing harassment at work? In order to prevent workplace harassment, we must first understand it. That’s why proper training, clear and open dialogues, and empathetic response protocols are so important.

We recently did a webinar with Lloyd’s Register about current research on employees’ experiences of violence and harassment at work, including the main barriers that prevent people from talking about it.

Here’s what we learned:

  • Psychological violence and harassment is the most prevalent across all countries
  • Women are especially vulnerable to violence and harassment at work
  • The majority of women who are harassed at work don’t file a complaint

Your organization has the power to use this information to create safer and more inclusive workplaces. All it takes is taking the time to listen, learn, and commit to making a change.

Emotionally engaging, cinematic training content promotes learner engagement, knowledge retention, and better outcomes for your organization.
