HR has a pivotal role in the success of an enterprise. It encompasses three aspects of business life: hiring, retention (salaries & benefits), and retirement/firing of employees. These three phases in the work of HR are equivalent to efficiency and productivity, company reputation and complying with legal standards and company work culture/policies. HR’s role is vital to business life. Yet, it remains to be the least planned and given the least attention.
HR compliance is necessary for an enterprise to be successful in today’s business environment. Unfortunately reaching and sustaining compliance remain unachieved goals because businesses do not put the effort to identify the challenges and to plan on overcoming challenges in complying with regulations and including them in company policies.
HR compliance tools are designed to give the department the leverage to incorporate government regulations and laws in the HR processes and make sure these are included in the enterprise’s work policies as well.
The compliance process involves identifying individual and group behaviors to make sure the that the business policies and relevant laws are followed. This includes creating policies and procedures relative to these laws. When these are established, they should be communicated across the organization. To effectively communicate the above-formed HR policies and procedures, learning management systems (LMS) are necessary.
It is not enough to create policies and procedures. It is also important that they are applied across the business organization. HR compliance tools include LMS for management and employees to be aware and comply with policies and procedures. Web-based tools have the advantage of flexibility in providing LMS with content that can be adapted to the particular policies and procedures of the company. The objective is to promote a safe workplace that is compliant to every law and regulation that business needs to heed.
Here are the benefits of LMS:
Web-based HR compliance tools and LMS work together in promoting a safe and compliant workplace for all. They are key in achieving and sustaining compliance, which plays a pivotal role in the success of a business. Business success is not just a matter of off the roof sales but a combination of all aspects of business life including safe and compliant workplaces as well as productive and efficient employees who are fully educated to the policies and procedures of the organization.
Workplace culture is more than a trending word – in HR or amongst employees. It is about how things are done in a workplace. Creating a workplace safety culture is a collective effort of having the mindset, attitudes and behaviors geared towards safety. It is having safety policy and program that’s continuously practiced by everyone in the organization without exception. Training everyone is key. Web-based video training helps create this company culture and support policies and programs set up by HR.
Web-based training videos help in creating a workplace safety culture by providing consistent content; allowing for repeated viewing until the topic(s) are fully understood; and enabling a viewing experience anywhere and everywhere there is internet. These educative means are also more creative and engaging training media as compared to conventional modules or seminars.
Web-based training videos can support the creation of workplace safety culture by being more accessible to employees, providing a standardized message or content and facilitating a faster and more thorough understanding of each rule or policy.
