Policy Compliance

Ensuring your policies and documents are distributed, read and understood

Policy Compliance covers a wide range of areas from essential Health & Safety requirements to GDPR through to Data Security, Anti Bribery and "Fit and Proper" tests for those in Professional and Financial Services.

In an increasingly litigious culture there is the ever present threat of a corporate scandal if an organisation falls foul of ever more onerous and rapidly changing regulations.

Improving the understanding of policies and ensuring compliance in organisations has become a priority.  Rather than convoluted trains of emails or antique paper trails, more and more organisations are seeking a simple, robust solution to roll out policies and report on compliance.

Policy and Document Sign Off from EssentialSkillz, is designed to automatically disseminate key policies to staff and give an audit trail of each policy being read and accepted. This completely replaces any paper based ad-hoc system in place and ensures you can stay on top of compliance.

And the system goes one step further. To prove understanding, you can add a test after the document has been signed off providing further evidence and adding to the robust audit trail.

The Policy Sign Off can be used in the EssentialSkillz LMS, WorkWize, or using a unique integration, it can be used in your own LMS.

Five Policy Compliance tips for organisations:

  • Have you identified the main areas of risk for your business?
  • Does your company have a compliance policy in place for each of them?
  • To whom does the compliance policy apply, and are the policies rolled out appropriately?
  • How do you monitor compliance?
  • Is there a robust legally enforceable audit trail for compliance?
