"I clicked a button and in seconds 105 employees received an email giving them their login to review a Harassment Prevention training course. And within minutes the Dashboard showed updates as one after another logged in and started the review process. Soon my email started coming in with notifications of the course completion. It was a beautiful thing - like Magic!"
Gaining Accreditation can be a rigorous process – which is why it gives credibility to the organizations that have achieved accreditation. Rigorous does not have to mean it takes forever. And rigorous does not have to mean it costs a lot.
Consider a technical service provider who is pursuing an industry accreditation. One of the requirements is that the company has in place a set of policies and procedures. Some of these policies and procedures are already in place and some have to be developed. This is the first challenge.
The second challenge is that every employee has to review these policies and procedures, at least once a year. And for some of the higher risk policies and procedures there is a mandatory knowledge test.
And as a third and final challenge the company needs to be able to show evidence or provide proof of delivery of all training and testing.
How is this even possible?
For someone without the resources of people or systems it would not be possible. Consider a company with 100 employees and 50 policies and procedures. That is 5,000 documents per year for training materials, 5,000 documents per year for testing, and 5,000 documents per year for sign offs. Imagine the paper cost and labour involved to do this pushing paper around the organization. The process would be never ending. You would just finish the process for one year and have to start on the next year. And can you imagine looking for someone's records.
Apply some Magic
Let's start by getting rid of the paper and putting all the polies and procedures in an electronic format, Word, PDF or PPT, something that is easy to view, easy to store and easy to maintain.
Next let's put these materials online and provide controlled access to our policy and procedure materials over an online system which we can measure and monitor as people complete the review and training process.
Finally let's add a formal sign off this is stored in the system and emailed to me as each person signs off. And there you have it. All electronic – highly automated – and cost effective accreditation training.
