Ethics and Compliance Videos

Has your organization been mandated to conduct ethics and compliance training after a damaging incident? We know that handling compliance issues is distressing. Let us help you navigate your solution with memorable video content.

Compliance Training Videos Improve Retention

The most important outcome of ethics and compliance training is that the lessons stick. Training without retention is useless. Video is scientifically proven to improve information retention rates. So consider including engaging videos to give your team the best shot.
Your employees all learn differently; some are readers or listeners, and some prefer to visualize a situation they can relate to. Repeating important messages throughout your video in different ways will reach all your learners.

A memorable video helps recall. But when a video is boring, employees will check out, they won’t absorb the information, and they’ll end up making mistakes. In a moment of decision, it’s important that they can recall the lesson in their ethics training and make the right choice.

Your Corporate Reputation Depends on Ethical Choices

Ethics and compliance training is serious business. Trust can be broken in a single moment, damaging your firm’s highly valued reputation and potentially costing millions. Not only is the corporate reputation at stake, but the adherence to rules and procedures keeps employees as well as your customers safe from harm.

You spend so much time building up trust with your stakeholders because you know it’s the key to making sales, reaching new clients, hiring the best talent. You need to be sure your employees will uphold the safety and privacy that your industry demands.

Your ethics and compliance training video may relay several messages: speak up about concerns, don’t cut corners to meet deadlines, reach out to a manager if you’re unsure where an ethical decision lies, don’t fear retaliation for speaking up about concerns and how you can report anonymously. Sometimes employees do things against code without even realizing. These themes can all be demonstrated using informative graphics, entertaining scenarios that employ skilled actors to deliver a believable performance, and reinforcing text on screen to follow along with a narrator or speaker.

Video is a Relatable Medium for Teaching Ethical Decision-making

One of the most effective strategies we use is video vignettes that illustrate ethical or compliance issues. When actors on video face complex decisions, it puts the learner in that situation. And if they end up facing a similar ethical dilemma, they’ll remember how the employees in the video handled it as if they were there, too.

One of the other crucial aspects of decision making is knowing who on your team you can trust. When employees understand who and when to ask for help, they understand that sometimes it’s helpful to have a superior involved. They will also understand that they won’t be penalized for bringing up an issue. Your ethics and compliance video may even include current employees who play an important role in the decision making at your company.
