In my daily work, I have the great pleasure of talking about compliance training strategy. In those conversations, one of the most frequent questions I get is “how can we issue less training and still be aligned with DOJ Guidance?”Read More
Next up in our interview series, Profiles In Compliance, we spoke with Joshua Stratmann, a true compliance futurist, from BMC Software. Joshua talks us through how he defines success for a compliance program, and how he has evolved training at BMC Software to help all employees live out the organization's core values.
In our new interview series, we will be bringing together compliance futurists to talk about the compliance & ethics landscape, effective training strategies, compliance trends & patterns, and tips on creating a world-class training program. In our first interview, we are thrilled to share our conversation with Christopher Annand from Cargill. Christopher led the work that won Cargill's Brandon Hall Award for Best Advance in Learning Measurement in 2020. You can read more about Cargill's program here.Read More
