Skillsoft Unveils Policy Management, Attestation and Certification Tool to Simplify Compliance Workflows
BOSTON – May 21, 2019 –Skillsoft, a global leader in corporate learning, today unveiled Skillsoft CertitudeTM, a policy management, attestation and assessment tool aimed at improving business processes and reducing risk. Certitude’s enhanced assessment and custom content creation capabilities provide organizations with a flexible tool able to support both compliance and safety programs as well as broader organizational initiatives.
By tying communications, policy management, attestations, disclosures and other efforts into one auditable tracking system, organizations can provide internal stakeholders, regulators and auditors a comprehensive view of the compliance measures in place to mitigate risk. Additionally, Certitude, which replaces Skillsoft Questionnaires, helps complement compliance training with the ability to gauge understanding and learning retention with the use of questionnaires, surveys disclosures, assessments, exams and checklists, enabling organizations to respond quickly to areas of possible or emerging risks.
With Certitude, organizations can simplify complex workflows, certify communications and assess knowledge with the ability to create custom content for many uses – all of which aim to improve business processes and reduce risk. Benefits include:
- Alleviates cumbersome workflows and processes: Streamlines the distribution of documents, policies and standard operating procedures with support for more than 40 languages.
- Maintains records to demonstrate employee acknowledgment and compliance: Captures employee attestation with electronic signatures and maintains auditable tracking and reporting to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.
- Gain visibility into possible risk areas before they become an issue: Evaluation capabilities (i.e., questionnaires, surveys, disclosures, etc.) can help organizations monitor and evaluate employee sentiment, knowledge and understanding on a given risk topic for immediate visibility into sensitive areas, with the ability to adapt quickly and respond to emerging risks.
- Conduct critical, just-in-time training: Custom content creation capabilities help organizations leverage existing documents and combine them with custom assessments to rapidly create formal custom training courses.
